Jeffery from US

Kaz from Hikari is head and shoulders above the other 2 agents I dealt with. He was prompt and engaged in every meeting and had a relaxed manner about him (not stuffy at all). The thing I appreciated most is he called every apartment I was interested in right in front of me - loved the transparency there. Nothing was hidden. It was basically - 1) you want to see the apartment 2) call them in front of you to make sure it's available 3) let's go see it right now. Recommending them to all my colleagues.

Thomas from US

After hearing horror stories of how long and difficult it is for some other foreigners to find apartments in Japan, I was extremely surprised and pleased with how quickly and smoothly things went using Kaz as my realtor. I would definitely recommend him to any foreigners nervous about apartment hunting in Tokyo

Jeff from US

Hikari homes was very helpful in finding me a place quickly. Kaz has especially been very helpful with setting things up. I will definitely this company again when I need to move locations.

Kaz was extremely helpful in what can usually be the very frustrating experience that finding housing in Tokyo often is. He had a great sense of what I was looking for and assisted in everything from start to finish. Would definitely recommend for foreign residents moving to/in Tokyo! Thanks Kaz!

Mary from UK

Efficient, professional, quick, very personable and with perfect English, Kaz was extremely helpful in finding a place to live. Thank you.

Levi from US

When every other realtor said “no,” Kaz said “yes”. Despite being abroad, having a visa issue, and canceling on him once: Kaz didn’t stop until he found a perfect place for me. In an industry where transparency can be hard to come by, Kaz treated me with the upmost honesty and professionalism. Thank you!

Keith from US

A friend of mine first put me in contact with Kaz when I told him I was planning on moving to Tokyo from the United States for graduate school. Kaz was incredibly helpful in guiding me through the process of searching for apartments as well as handling all of the related paperwork. While I had lived in Japan previously and expected a long and difficult process, his help made the transition painless. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to move to or within the Tokyo area.

Finally I was able to find my apartment and thanks to Kaz. Not so easy for foreigners to come and set up their life here especially if they are picky about all their requirements and location. Kaz was very patient and resilient to continue the search and understand my  needs. Great guy and would definitely recommend his service. Please ask him how much he can “deadlift” haha

As soon as my employer gave Kaz my details he was in touch with us straight away. He gave thoughtful consideration to our needs and found matching apartments to meet our needs.

We ended up with a beautiful apartment that we love. Would highly recommend Kaz Harada to anyone but especially expats looking to live in Tokyo.

Kaz has been amazing. I owe him a lot to get my apartment. I had an unexpected issue that was compromizing the deal and Kaz brillantly reacted. He's been very supportive and responsive all along.

Etienne from France

Kaz-san was extremely helpful in helping me find the apartment. He is very competent with a strong knowledge about Tokyo's housing market. Kaz-san was able to reply to all my questions extremely fast and to deal with some of my minor questions. Furthermore he speaks English fluently which turned out to be extremely helpful in dealing with some procedures written only in Japanese (my Japanese being not so fluent).

Eventually I really appreciated him being honest about the entire procedure and his ability to keep me updated during the entire process (especially for finding the guarantor company).

I definitely recommend him.

Wyatt from US

We had our eyes on a specific new high-rise apartment, with shared office space on the second floor. Normally, it is quite difficult for foreigners to get approved at this type of building. However, Kaz advised us on which rooms might work, and took the best course of action. Thanks to his efforts, we were able to move in quickly and without hassle. I highly recommend Kaz.
