FAQ finding an apartment with wagaya Japan

Can I make an application even before arriving in Japan?

It depends on the property you want to rent. Some properties accept applications from persons who are scheduled to come to Japan. In this case, you may be required to provide a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility or visa application form. Note that it is generally not possible to reserve a property for more than one month (regardless of whether you apply before or after coming to Japan), especially if the property is already vacant.

Are apartments furnished with furniture and appliances?

It depends on the property. Some apartments can be fully furnished, and some unfurnished rooms come with a rental service for furniture and appliances.

Do I need a guarantor?

In recent years, many properties require the use of a guarantor company, regardless of the tenant's nationality. For such properties, you do not need to arrange your own guarantor or cosigner. However, to use a guarantor company, you normally need to provide an emergency contact person. Depending on the guarantor company, you may be required to provide a contact person who is Japanese.
