Musashi from the Philippines

 Harada-san has been ultra-responsive to all my needs. He did not just meet my expectations—he exceeded them! I recommend him to any expat struggling to find a nice place in Tokyo. He helped me in every step of the way. I’d give him 10 starts if I could. Thanks again!

 Kaz was an excellent help for finding an apartment in Japan. Many coworkers had a difficult time finding and applying to apartments in Tokyo, but Kaz made the process easy and efficient. He helped us look through the many available apartments, arranged tours, and handled much of the paperwork. Any time we had questions or concerns Kaz was very quick to provide answers, making the entire experience much less stressful. Kaz was an excellent help and we will be recommending his services to others in the future.

 Kaz is really amazing and efficient. 2 minutes after meeting him we were looking at apartments on his computer. We went to visit the house that we're currently renting the next day. Every part of the process was really smooth and he is super responsive. I would 100% call him again if I wanted to rent another apartment or house in Tokyo.

Stan from Belgium

 I used Hikari homes with the help of Kaz, to find an apprtement in Tokyo. I have discussed with more than 10 different agents to help me find an appartement and Kaz was the best by far! He really tried to understand what i'm looking for and helped me during the whole process! I recommend his servcies without hesitation!

 I had the great pleasure of working with the wonderful Hikari Homes agent, Kaz Harada. Kaz did an exceptional job of sitting down with me to understand my apartment preferences and sharing his years of expertise during my search. Every meeting with him was productive and he made sure to make each meeting as convenient as possible for me. Kaz toured me to 7 different apartments across Tokyo until I found the one that I really liked. As soon as I found the one that I liked, Kaz immediately started the application process and was able to start the application process in less than 24 hours. Without Kaz and the help of Hikari Homes, I would not be in the beautiful Shibuya, Tokyo apartment that I live in today. I highly recommend Hikari Homes to anyone looking to move or upgrade their living situation!

 Harada-san was the most thoughtful & quick to respond agent I have ever met in Tokyo. He made a very complex and lengthy process turn into a short, straightforward and positive experience.

Navi from Hong Kong

 Kaz have helped me to move in Japan smoothly. He is a great and energetic agent that I will recommend to all foreigners moving to Japan!

 First of all, he is used to working with non-Japanese people, he understands the cultural differences and expectations surrounding housing. Fluent English speaker and native Japanese, his ability to act as a bridge is great. He calls in advance to make sure no ones time is wasted.


Additionally, he is a very active listener, taking the time to listen to you and what you want.
Quickly we went through a list of places that were all in my target zone, identified a few that were a match, and quickly found a place that I fell in love with.
Because he listened to me, he did in 3 days, what other agents hadn’t done for me in 2 years.

I just moved in and it’s great. (He also didn’t disappear once the deal was done.)

When I move again in 2-3 years, I will call him. (I will also be recommending him to others)

If you’re moving call Kaz, “be-Kaz” he is the best. (Sorry for the dad joke).

Benoit from Togo

 My apartment hunt experience with Kaz-san was easy, smooth, and enjoyable. In roughly three weeks after my first contact with Kaz-san, I moved into my new place. Kaz-san was very professional throughout the whole process. I highly recommend him. Thank you, Kaz-san.

Kiki from US

 Great service and Kaz found us the perfect place!
