One of the issues many foreigners face when they come to live in Japan involves looking for an apartment. Intimidated by the language barrier, property owners often refuse to rent to non-Japanese for fear of not being able to communicate should a problem occurs. On this episode we follow Dong Xiaoliang, the director of a firm that acts as a bridge between landlords and foreigners, helping non-Japanese find a place to live. We also meet Cameroonian Wouassi Vincent Jr., a drum teacher in Tokyo.
