Against all logic, it is actually getting more difficult to rent in Tokyo, not easier.  That is why you need somebody "on your side" who will give you very straight guidance to help you navigate the Tokyo rental market.  If you are a foreigner in Tokyo, you need this.  You need Kaz!  
With Kaz, I hit the trifecta: a nice place... with very reasonable rent... in Minato-ku.  And the icing was generously slathered on the cake because he even successfully negotiated the rent for me.  And he really guided me considerably in the hoop jumping application process.
I have already recommended Kaz to one of my friends - who found a great place as well - and will continue to do so.
If you need a place in Tokyo, you know who to talk to.

Samuli from Finland

I was looking for my first apartment as I was to become a college
student in Tokyo in the fall of 2012. I was prepared for a long
process but we managed to find a few suitable properties on the very
first meeting and I got to go and check them out the same evening.
Miho was an invaluable help during the whole process, my emails were
always answered very quickly and Miho took care of setting up the
utilities for me and carefully explained all the processes related to
renting an apartment in Japan. Overall I couldn't be happier about the
fast and good service I got at Hikari Apartments. Renting an apartment
in Tokyo can be a painful process for a gaijin moving to Japan but
Hikari homes and Miho made it so unbelievably smooth for me. I would
definitely recommend them to anyone looking to move into Tokyo for any

I've had four apartments in Tokyo and my last two were found with the help of Kaz and Hikari Home. The experience was as almost painless and all the little details I didn't have time to worry about were taken care of for me by Kaz. Even after the move Kaz was sure to check up on me and even helped to solve a few small problems I had in my new place. If I had to move again I would definitely ask Kaz to help me out!

"This is the 3rd time I've rented an apartment in Japan, and Kaz was the best agent I've dealt with.  Throughout the process he was always prompt with replies, very patient with answering questions, and indulged me when I wanted to pursue different options at the last minute.  I will recommend Hikari homes to others and when the time comes to find a new place, they'll be my first contact.  During one trip to see an apartment we came upon someone who was having medical difficulties of some kind.  While everyone busily walked by, Kaz stopped and asked if he could help, and contacted the station agent.  This clearly demonstrated his compassionate character."
