Rumi from USA

I enjoyed working with hikari homes very much. I used them for a short term apt as well as for my long term apartment. I was very anxious to find an apartment ASAP and move out of my short term apartment as soon as possible to go ahead and get settled and appreciated the way that Irina and Meg responded and worked with me.

Irina patiently worked with me through a few contract changes while I was still in the US, and Meg took care of finding my long term apt once I had arrived. They provided me a refund for the few days that I did not stay at the short term place and Meg worked with the management company to meet me in quick turnaround time so that I could receive the keys to my new apt. I had done a fair bit of research prior to moving to Japan so I had certain expectations regarding rent and amenities but was still nervous about actually finding an affordable, safe, convenient and new apt near the station of my choice. Meg was able to deliver! What I enjoyed the most was how human she was and how she gave honest answers. Also appreciate how I feel comfortable reaching out with questions even after I've moved in.

Meg was a great help in my recent apartment hunt in Tokyo. Having already lived in the city for a few years, I had a very specific idea of what I was looking for and Meg was very understanding and accommodating of my long list of "must-haves." I ended up finding just what I wanted in a matter of days and Meg did her best to negotiate lower fees on my behlalf. I particularly enjoyed working with Meg because of her humour and honesty and I felt that I could talk to her as more of a friend than just an agent. I would highly recommend working with Meg.

I had the pleasure of dealing with Megumi when I was looking for an new apartment. Not only was she extremely professional, but also very friendly, efficient and honest - she wouldn' hesitate to say if she thought a place wasn't suitable. She was very helpful and even arranged for the utilities to be connected. Meg was very sensitive to my specific needs in finding a suitable place for which I was very grateful. Thanks Meg! Much appreciated.

I highly recommend Kaz's service. I had a great experience working with him! The process of findig a suitable place to call home in a foreign country can be quite stressful, but with Kaz's help, everything became easy. He was knowledgeable, personable, and accessable throughout the process. Not only did he help me find a place that I'm very happy with, he took care of the complicated paperwork, explained the contract in detail, and helped setting up utilities. He was very attentive to my needs and very efficient. I was able to move in to my apartment within a week of viewing. His hard work made the move a very smooth one. Thanks so much!

Moving to a country where you don't speak the language can be a confusing process, but Kaz made it as simple as possible, explaining how things work and bridging the language gap. We found an apartment on the first day, and Kaz's friendly help made it as painless as it could be. Thanks!

Kaz also tookthe time to assist us in finalising all the necessary paperwork promptly. We feel very fortunate to have been referred to Kaz.

I would have never expected to meet such a friendly and easy going person as Kaz while looking for an apartment. As a foreign in Tokyo, there're many complications, paper work and processes that need to be done when it comes to getting a new apartment, and they are all in japanese! After showing my interest to Kaz to get an apartment at an specific date, he immediately, without extensive paper work or delays took me to a tour to visit the apartment that satisfied the descriptions that told him. After I confirmed with him he handled all the documents and negotiations necessary, letting me focus in my work and normal life. Thank You Kaz!
