You have done your research may find out why the prices displayed on major rental websites in Japan are so cheap? There are three main reasons:
1. Most of the rental houses in Japan are vacant rentals (not including internet)
2. The common shortest contract for renting a house in Japan is 2 years, and the company provides the shortest contract for 3 months! The higher cost of short-term rentals will also be partly reflected in the rent.
3. Japanese renters usually need to attach a guarantor or join a guarantor agency. Joining a guarantor agency will require a one-time joining fee and an annual renewal fee. (The cost varies according to the rent)
Here we show you a detailed calculation of common furniture and household appliances needed for life:
Trial calculation of furniture and electrical appliances
(Take a 1-year contract for a single suite as an example)
Tables and chairs:
Vacuum cleaner: ¥4,000
Microwave oven: ¥8,000
Electric pot: ¥6,000
Hair dryer: ¥3,000
Bowl & tableware & knives: ¥5,000
Bedding : ¥15,000
Shower curtain & bathroom floor mat: ¥2,000
Monthly Internet Fee: ¥5,000
The total is about ¥160,000
¥160,000/12 months≒ ¥14,000/month
If you deduct the monthly rent provided by the company for ¥14,000 and short-term rental costs, the guarantor agency's joining fees, etc., you can find that the rent provided by the company can definitely stand the test of the market!
Do you think everything is OK after you get the key? Then there is something that even the Japanese find troublesome name change and online application! Name change to put it simply, the name of water, electricity, and gas is changed to your name, so that the bill can be sent to you smoothly. But! The company has removed these complicated procedures for you, and instead included the basic utility bills in the monthly bill "Common fee", if there is any excess, the bill received from the water, electricity and gas company will be sent to you and the excess amount will be informed, and you can pay it together when paying the rent every month!
Common fee is a concept unique to Japan, which means to add up the monthly fixed expenses other than rent. The actual included items are slightly different for each company. Please carefully confirm the included items when signing the contract. Online application you need to choose from a variety of preferential projects, which is quite a headache for new friends who have just arrived in Japan. In addition, after a successful application, it takes 2 to 3 weeks (for apartments) and 1 to 2 months (for detached houses) to actually use it.
All the items provided by the company have been prepared for you to use the Internet, and you can use them immediately after check-in!
