At Apts.jp, we strive for excellence.

Our client base varies- from overseas clients who've started a new job position in Tokyo, to people who've lived in Tokyo for many years.

We assist our clients with everything required for renting an apartment, as well as negotiating initial costs and serving as an in-between for clients and property managers. Can't speak Japanese? Not a problem.

We provide extensive post-move-in support, which has received high praise from our clients. Don't know how utilities work in Tokyo? Don't know where to go for what or how to handle an apartment issue? Not a problem.

If there’s any issues that arise during the application/contract/post-move-in process, we have solutions.

They helped me with so many things!
