Renting in Japan

Living in Japan

Broadcast on March 6, 2022 Available until March 6, 2023

March is the peak month for moving in Japan, as people get ready for the start of the fiscal year in April. Renting a place to live involves navigating through an array of customs and practices. Where can you find a suitable apartment? What must you pay in advance? Blake Golden, an American real estate agent, explains how the Japanese system works. In the latter part of the program, Yamaguchi Hiroaki, an anchor with NHK WORLD-JAPAN’s news service, offers advice on enjoying the symbol of spring: cherry blossoms.
