I am extremely fortunate to have met Manabu-san who helped me find a great apartment in the perfect location. Having spent the last year and a half living in a guesthouse/apartment, I was a bit hesitant about looking for an apartment on my own. Just by chance, and out of curiosity, I sent an inquiry to Hikari Home. That same day, I received a response from Manabu-san. From day one, I felt that he had my best interest at heart. I really appreciate the time he has taken to help me find the right place and to explain the Japanese documents in English. I have not had to worry about anything during the entire process as he has taken care of everything. If you are looking for an apartment in Tokyo, I definitely recommend contacting Hikari Home. You'll be in good hands with Manabu-san. Thanks again for everything,Lei

I had to move to Tokyo on very short notice. Even after living in Japan for many years, I didn't have any idea where to start house hunting in Tokyo. Kaz and Hikari Home made the whole process very easy. Kaz was very helpful in introducing me to different neighborhoods and he helped me to focus my search and find an apartment that I would truly be happy with. He was patient, flexible and professional throughout the entire process. I can't thank him enough for his help. I highly recommend him and Hikari Home to any one looking to relocate to Tokyo.

"A friend of mine who knew I was urgently looking for an apartment in Tokyo gave my name to Kaz and his team at Hikari Home. Within the same day, he got in touch with me, with apartment recommendations. On that week, he showed me the apartment I wanted, and later that month, I signed the papers to move in. Kaz's service was professional, concise, and to the point. The apartments his team provides are neat, well maintained, and affordable. Kaz's flawless English made him my go-to man for any friend of mine from abroad looking to settle in Tokyo. I'm truly satisfied with the apartment I now live in. Kaz, thanks again for your help!"

Having been previously in contact with Hikari Home for an apartment search, which had been a pleasant experience, it seemed obvious to turn to them again when we started looking for office space for our business. Kaz and Tad are both very friendly people and were extremely diligent in providing as many possibilities as possible and helping us narrow down our choice to the most fitting. Kaz did not hesitate to answer our emails even late at night to ensure the process would be smooth and fast. The agency even provided interpretation services free of charge when we had to sign the contract with the management company and helped us negotiate the terms of rental. We ended up finding a good place very quickly and are fully satisfied with the services provided by Hikari Home. We will definitely turn to them again if we ever need to find another place.

My husband and I were getting very worried trying to find a new place in Japan. While still in America, we had contacted several different apartment rentals listings online and it was not looking good. I recommended to try Hikari Home from a colleague and all I can say is that Kaz did a fantastic job. The day after we arrived in Japan we visited his office and he had 10 different possibilities picked out for our review. We narrowed the selection down to the top 3 and he arranged for us to see all of them that day. That night Kaz started the paperwork on our top choice and due to his hard work, one week later we had the keys to our new place in hand. Kaz made the whole experience very fun and easy. I would recommend him and Hikari Home to anyone. Thank you so much Kaz!

Living in a temp apartment and working 12+ hours per day, I was eager to get situated in my own apartment in Japan. Not speaking any Japanese or being familiar with many neighborhoods in Tokyo, I was nervous about my upcoming deadline to find an apartment. In one Sunday afternoon, Kaz and I saw several apartments in the Omostesando area before finding the perfect apartment for me in Naka-meguro. I could not be more satisfied with the place I found and the terms of the rental. But Kaz followed through even after I had already committed to the apartment. He worked with HR at my own company, my relocation service, the gas company, and the internet company. When I moved in, it was a one shot process to getting set up. I could not be more relieved and grateful to Kaz and Ms. Sakamaki for their help.

"Having moved to another country to before I know how much trouble and stress that can bring. Finding a new place to call home in a foreign culture, in a new language, isn't easy. So this time I was prepared for a bumpy ride. Especially in Japan. But luck came my way when I contacted Hikarihome. Then a smooth operation began, with the professional and personal Tad-san taking on my case. Tad specializes in finding homes for foreigners in Japan and his international background and fantastic organizational mind makes him perfect for the job. I could not have found anyone better to help me out. In nearly no time at all he found me a lovely new home! I wholeheartedly recommend Hikarihome to all foreigners in the market for a place to live in Tokyo. You will not be disappointed."
