Fully Furnished or Fully Equipped Apartments, are apartments that allow people arriving directly from overseas a very easy transition into life here in Japan. Yes of course it is possible to arrive and stay in a hotel and start looking around for properties on your own when you first arrive, but most likely you may be occupied with the starting of a new job, may have little or no Japanese language experience and may be generally at a lost as to where to begin your search. We recommend that people take a bit of time to get to know the city before making any decisions regarding where they plan to live long-term.
After a couple months of commuting to and from your new workplace or school etc. and having the time to understand where you will spend your free time hours, we believe you will be better able to make a well-informed decision of where you would like to live for the duration of your stay in Japan should it be long term.
Thus, this system of arriving, unpacking and starting your new life appeals to many newcomers here in Japan. The relatively short 3-month minimum stay contract allows you the freedom to decide where you would ultimately like to live in relation to your work as well as your private life. In fact, many Apollo Properties` customers stay in the fully-furnished apartment they rent for years on end.
Note: Generally speaking, non-furnished apartments offered through most local Japanese real estate offices cannot be reserved from overseas as you must be here in person in order to complete a detailed application process. The application process can take up to 2 weeks depending on your application details. The management company of the apartment you are interested in renting will then either accept or deny your application. This process can be time consuming thus making it a good decision to rent a fully-furnished apartment or a private room in one of our share houses for when you first arrive in Osaka.
