I could find a great apartment very quickly thanks to Meg and Kaz. They both speak English very well and take the time to explain you every detail about the contract. They also took care of utility opening for me which was a great help as I don't speak Japanese at all and could not manage this by myself. I highly recommend Hikari!

"Looking for a place to live is normally a daunting experience. If that is in a country other than one's own the stress factor is to be multiplied by 10 and if in addition one doesn't speak the language trifold! But then you find Hikari Home in Tokyo. Kaz and Meg go to great lengths to find the right place and they take care of all the details so it becomes a rather easy experience; they're both fluent in English and in addition to the show arounds they are great company to spend the afternoons with. So all in all I'm very pleased with having chosen Hikari Homes."

I highly recommend Hikari for their kind assistance to finding a new home in Tokyo. Although I had some requests, she showed me some options and I am very happy that I get to know her and Hikari.
If you are looking for a realtor, I recommend you get in touch with Megu and she will be more than happy to find you the right spot for you!

Thank you for the good support and friendly contact. Even before meeting people from Hikari I was able to start my search from France, Kaz having sent me a questionnaire to evaluate my needs. It was a pleasure interacting with Kaz and Hitomi, they did listen to my requests and tried to bring the closest match possible on the market. I am now enjoying life in my apartment after a short efficient series of visits.

"Thanks to Meg, I finally have a place to call my own. Not only did she meet my stringent requirements in terms of location and rent but also exceeded my expectations by brokering a win-for-all deal. And the amount of effort and time I had to expend was kept minimum. So props to Hikari Home for having such a phenomenal agent who will leave no stone unturned until a client is happy and satisfied."

"The hassles and stress of being a foreigner trying to find your own place in Tokyo were greatly lessened by having Meg by my side. If it weren't for her, I don't know how I would have landed my lovely place at such a great price. Even when we ran into a few bumps came along the way, Meg was right there working hard to figure out a way to work them out all the while keeping me in the loop (nothing is worse than not knowing if you'll have a place to live or not). She went by far above and beyond as an agent and I greatly appreciate her insights and hard work. If you are looking for someone who will go the extra mile for you, look no further than Meg!"
I highly recommend Kaz as a real estate agent. He was highly professional, courteous and great to work with from our very first meeting. He was able to quickly shortlist a few apartments based on the criteria I provided him, set up apartment viewings for the following weekend, and get an application going within 2 days after the viewing. He took care of most of the paperwork during the application process, including the set up for the utilities and internet, which was a great help to me as a recent Japan resident of less than a year. Start to finish, it took about a month from when I saw my first apartment with Kaz to the date I signed my lease, and about 2 months to my move-in date, which was very quick. I've built a strong relationship with Kaz from this process, and would recommend him to anyone looking for a new apartment in Tokyo; great guy to work with.
