  • Hey, guys, it's so nice sitting down in a video.

  • I feel so comfortable.

  • I'm just like, right now I'm sitting at my new desk.

  • I'm sitting in new chest so I can finally edit and it's so comfortable.

  • It's really nice looking.

  • Look out the window while I edit.

  • It's great.

  • Yeah, this is my first sit down video in ages.

  • The background seems a little plane, but we're working on it.

  • This is my apartment.

  • And, uh, I wanted to talk to you guys today about this.

  • That apartments I personally have bean through the struggles of finding apartments in Japan.

  • And, you know, there's different levels of struggle for everyone, and there's different requirements in different situations.

  • So I wanted to kind of talk about my experience.

  • What I've learned on DDE.

  • Yeah, kind of some suggestions in places you can go to find good apartments.

  • This whole thing is just for my own opinion and my own experiences.

  • So if you guys have any corrections or things you wanna add, please leave them in the comments down below, we can have a chat also, if any of you are Australians and I think you're coming on the working holiday visa.

  • This video is definitely for you because it's a very particular set of circumstances with that visa.

  • So kind of help you out a little bit with what's gonna happen, even if you won't think you maybe to Japan come along in line about Japanese apartments and housing and kind of options that we have here.

  • So I'll just be some aboutthe start.

  • Why getting apartments in Japan can be a bit of a struggle and just a few simple points.

  • So festival someplace is quite a little places actually don't allow foreigners as a few reasons for this.

  • I don't know all of them, but I think some people believe that, you know, we're gonna break the contracting.

  • Go back home to our in countries with foreigners only seems very permanent here.

  • Sometimes there's that we don't really so out trash out.

  • Well, we're not like the ideal citizen because a lot of time we don't really know what we're doing.

  • That's a kind of feeling that I think that some people have.

  • So that's why I guess is, well, if you don't have a Japanese spouse, why Todd to go with Japanese apartment companies a lot of times we're kind of forced to go with, like, English friendly foreign, a friendly apartment companies and load the times.

  • These guys can really charge a lot extra than a normal Japanese apartment company.

  • Another thing that makes it difficult.

  • Our visas.

  • It really depends on what easier on as to what kind of house and you can get.

  • I'm mainly talking about this because the Australian working holiday visa, which is only six months at a time, which you can renew twice so you could be here for like a year and 1/2.

  • But because on your visa is that six months, a lot of places won't give you a contract unless you have a year long.

  • These are so that really makes things difficult as well.

  • Another thing that makes it difficult is guarantees.

  • I haven't had to go through this because I haven't really tried to go through many Japanese housing agencies or anything.

  • But ah, lot of people expect you to have a guarantee, a guarantee I believe is supposed to be Japanese and have lived here for a really long time and be a citizen or something like that.

  • They are supposed to sign and basically be responsible for you if you leave, so they will pay everything that you owe that kind of thing.

  • It's a really big ask of someone a Japanese vessel usually pick like family members or something.

  • But as a foreigner, you don't really have that.

  • And so you have to pay guaranteed companies, which can charge a lot of money as well.

  • And that leads me to another thing.

  • That's very difficult.

  • Extra costs.

  • So when you move into somewhere, a lot of places expect different things.

  • But usually there's key money, guaranteed money, the deposit and then they'll be all these extra things, like an insurance.

  • There's just a lot of extra things.

  • So when you move into somewhere, the moving costs can be very extreme.

  • Now the sounds all negative.

  • I don't really want to make this negative video.

  • I just wanna let you know kind of the reality of what you're stepping into and get you ready for it, and also give you some advice on how to avoid going through all that crap festival.

  • I'm just gonna talk about my experience a little bit.

  • When I first came to Japan on the wedding holiday visa, which was the six month visa.

  • The only apartment agencies I could go with were kind of throwing a friendly month to month contract, really high charge places and and they were always super small.

  • But the thing is, I really wanted to live in Tokyo itself.

  • I didn't know much about the outer skirts or anything about each suburb, really.

  • So I was just aiming to be like on the Yamamoto line, because I just come to Japan.

  • So that's kind of how I ended up in this eight square meter tiny apartment because my visa couldn't really get me anything else.

  • There were much worse options as well.

  • I should hide like much worse.

  • Even the same building had the same tiny apartment, but without the loft.

  • It was a bit cheaper, but it was just You just fold out a mattress on that little corridor floor every night, which is insane.

  • Sometimes it's unavoidable.

  • So the kind of agencies that provide that on this name a few.

  • There's Leo Palace.

  • There's Fuji Me House, the soccer house.

  • Yeah, there's a bunch of companies out there which will provide really, really small accommodation from really high price, but usually it's very hard to find another alternative.

  • So just so you know, those options are there if you are in the working holiday visa.

  • But also, those options are good.

  • If you just come to Japan and you don't know what it could, they're very easy.

  • They're very quick to set up.

  • And if you just need temporary accommodation for like a month or two, you can go to one of those while you find an actual apartment.

  • They include free WiFi and gas and water and everything.

  • All the bills are included, so that's why there's a good for short term.

  • And overall, the experience with them was convenient, but they are completely not suitable for people living in Japan.

  • Long term, I was at mine for about 11 months, which made me go insane on it was no great to live in such a tiny apartment.

  • But you know, when you got no other options, you just gotta do what you gotta do.

  • I know that their palace does do bigger apartments than the place that I was in, but I want you to know that good places do exist.

  • You just gotta keep looking.

  • Another option out there for people is share.

  • House is there actually a lot of shit houses in Tokyo or people have a great time and share houses, and, uh, there's definitely gonna be once in a more flexible with visas.

  • I think when I first came to Japan, I didn't look into share houses because I just didn't want to live with anybody else.

  • I really, really just wanted to live by myself.

  • So I kind of sacrifice space in order to live alone.

  • I know that if you did spend money on a share house, you would probably get more space than than what I was living with.

  • Share houses.

  • They're also good if you come to Japan and u uh, walking up and saving money to get you were in place.

  • If you just need someone to start out, probably go share house.

  • It's a lot cheaper and easier, and they're also more luxurious.

  • Share houses.

  • You can stay out social apartments.

  • I think it's called.

  • You still have to pay quite a bit for them, but it's also good if you want to have a nice living space and you work better around people so you can go and stay with them.

  • And they were common areas and kitchens and stuff like that.

  • So I think there's a some of the nicest share houses you can get, but there's gonna be definitely cheaper ones out that you just gotta look a little bit now, that's all.

  • For kind of people coming on, either.

  • Six month things is all without so much money.

  • If you have a longer visa, I probably recommend going to Guijin, part the apartment site.

  • If you've been looking for apartments, you probably already know about this one.

  • But this is actually really good gems on that.

  • It's so good to my apartment that I actually live in was on Guijin part.

  • There's some really good stuff if you just know exactly how to find what you're looking for and the best thing that guy's your part is, they're all gonna be foreign, a friendly, so you don't have to go through the struggle of asking each apartment.

  • If you can go and live that they have a huge range of prices that you can look at and a huge range of houses, so that one is really good.

  • If you want to go on, just browse the kind of options that are available.

  • Actually, there's one that I recommend the most to people.

  • I haven't used it, but most of my friends have used it and found really good, cheap places.

  • It's gold, many, many they don't really have, like an online site where you can look for houses.

  • They do have one that's in Japanese, but that one they I can't guarantee if they're foreign friendly or not, but they have a lot of branches around Tokyo.

  • So if you come to Tokyo and stay somewhere for like a month or two while you figure it out, you could go to many, many and they'll search and find foreign friendly apartments for you.

  • And I know people who had, like, 40,000 rent 40 to 50,000 yen rent a month, which you know for Tokyo is like really good at it.

  • And, you know, it was their own apartments with little kitchens and even balconies and things like that.

  • So many, many you can really find a good deal.

  • You just need to have the patients and find a branch and really work through all the options that you have.

  • If you search with Guijin part or many, many I think you can.

  • Such replaces that darn need a guarantor key money.

  • I think that you can do that.

  • I mean, the moving costs are still kind of expensive, but definitely not as expensive.

  • It's if you need those things.

  • Another tip that I have is it is actually so convenient to live, not in the middle of Tokyo of the nominating.

  • Like a lot of people I know who live in Tokyo, especially for long term, live either outside of Tokyo or just like a little bit out of Tokyo in kind of areas that aren't close to the big city places, this means that rent is heaps cheap, ill and the house is definitely bigger.

  • So you have a lot more options, and it also, you know, I like living just out of Tokyo because it's more of a community.

  • There's a lot more people that want to talk to you.

  • It's less busy, it's less rush.

  • But still the city is like 15 20 minutes away, so it's really convenient and I do recommend looking not just in your favorite city areas and a big point of advice I have is just give it time.

  • Like, make sure you spend a lot of time looking coming from my own place.

  • I such for an apartment for about five months and slowly, you know, went crazy.

  • But, um, yeah, it took me five months of going to apartment agencies and really not giving in.

  • I didn't want to give in and get a place that was in my mind.

  • I was like, 16 square meters.

  • That's gonna be my dream.

  • I need something.

  • I'm not going below 16 square meters, and everywhere I went, I was like, No, you can't.

  • You can't afford this.

  • You can't afford that.

  • Your baby is not good enough.

  • We can't do anything for years.

  • So just, uh but didn't give up.

  • Never give up there so many sights that I have not mentioned quite a few of the site that I haven't mentioned more.

  • You know, if people who have quite a bit of money, if you have money, that's so good, and you're gonna be totally fine if you don't mind spending quite a bit on rent.

  • There are so many websites for you.

  • One thing I want to really encourage you to do is just search just such your guts out on the Internet because there are so many options that I didn't talk about and you might find a new one that I have never seen before.

  • But I'll just say when you do find an apartment and you do move in and it sold on the stress being over, it's so good to just exploiting your neighborhood.

  • Meet people, decorate your apartment.

  • It's the best feeling honestly.

  • I mean, moving apartments in any country is stressful.

  • Yet let alone Japan, where everything's different and crazy and you don't know what you're looking for.

  • If you are moving to Japan or if you're moving house or apartment in Japan, good luck.

  • I hope it goes really well.

  • And if it gets just, we'll just take a moment.

  • It's gonna be okay.

  • There are plenty of options here.

  • You just gotta just go fight through.

  • You're gonna be totally fine.

  • As I said before, these just Myron opinions and personal experiences.

  • If you have anything else you want to add to this, just leave it in the comments down below and yeah, we can have a discussion and took about housing in Japan.
