Japan – A guarantor (rental housing) is a person who co-signs the lease to share liability with the tenant. As landlords prefer relatives as guarantors, it is extremely difficult for foreigners to secure accommodation in apartments. On top of this, renting an apartment in Japan usually requires a security deposit (shikikin) and/or key money (reikin) to be paid upfront to the landlord. If you are studying abroad, your host institution may act as your guarantor. If you are working in Japan, you may be able to arrange for your company to act as your guarantor, however this may be problematic if your company decides to no longer be the guarantor or if you decide to find a new job.

For those who value living alone more than anything, don’t fret! Foreigner-friendly real estate agencies like Sakura House and Oakhouse in Tokyo can help you dodge the unaccommodating inflexibilities of the guarantor system in Japan. These agencies offer directories of all sorts of accommodation (such as apartments, share houses, and dormitories), allowing foreigners to rent apartments with ease of mind. Share houses and gaijin houses are also becoming an increasingly popular options amongst Japanese locals and foreigners in Japan. Most of these share houses are located in centralised areas/major cities in Japan.
