Find a room in Tokyo
There are many apartments and rental rooms in Tokyo area. The rental period is usually 2 years and the tenant will be required to have a guarantor in Japan and pay a deposit (one or two months' rent) and key money (one or two months' rent, non-refundable) in addition to the monthly rent. Students on a shot stay basis or non-Japanese speakers will find it difficult to get rental housing.
Sophia entrusts NASIC Co. and Student Service Co., Ltd. concerning finding apartments. Students interested in renting apartment should contact NASIC Co. or Student Service Co., Ltd. for details.
