SEASON 1: EPISODE 49
One of the first major challenges that many foreigners will face when moving to Japan is renting an apartment. The idea of finding a place you like, handing over first and last months rent and getting the keys is not exactly done here.

To help us understand this process we are joined by Adam German from Real Estate Japan, who is going to guide us through the necessary steps of securing your new home away from home.
