J&F Plaza-引越し

1.引越し(ウェンWhen ムーヴィンmoving)
(1)新居での手配 Utilities and Registration
Contact each utility office. Because most offices do not have English speaking staff, we recommend that you ask a friend who can speak Japanese for assistance.
Apply for a Certificate of Alien Registration and an official change of address.
To acquire these documents you must go to the city ward office of the area where you now live.

Open a bank account and officially change your address with your bank

4)運転免許証の住所変更 Change the address on your drivers license
To change the address on your driver's liscense, go to the local police office of the area where you now live.
It is a good idea to greet the landlord and neighbors when you move in. First impressions in Japan are very important. In times of emergency it is your neighbors who will help you the most. Also, if you have a good relationship with your neighbors they are less likely to complain about noise and other disturbances.

(3)入居時の修理(リペアーズRepairs ビフォアbefore ユーYou ムーヴmove インin)
1.When You Move In
Before moving into an apartment that has had previous tenants any severe wear or damage will have been repaired, however this does not mean that the unit will have been completely refurbished with new tatami mats, sliding doors, wall surfaces, paint, etc... Contact your real estate agent immediately if you have any questions about repairs when you move in. Please note that a request for repair work can only be accepted if the problem is reported without delay.
2.室内清掃(Taking care of your new home)
Due to the relatively high humidity inside recently built housing, you should take extra care to avoid mold buildup. On sunny days it is best to air out rooms and allow the walls, closets, cupboards, etc., to dry out.
Heating in the winter may cause drops of water to condense on the walls and give rise to mold. Be especially careful about condensation in rooms and closets on the northern side of a building. Keep these rooms well aired out and wipe away any condensation droplets that may form with a dry cloth.
The climate in Japan is warm and humid. During the rainy season and the summer, humidity is high, and during the winter the use of heaters causes condensation on windows and walls. If this condensation is not dealt with properly, mold will follow.
If you notice condensation in your room, wipe it up with a dry cloth and ventilate the room well.
As the insides of oshi-ire are also prone to condensation, ventilate them well. During the rainy season and winter, opening both fusuma a bit at the edges helps keep an oshi-ire's interior dry.
Sort your garbage into combustible and incombustible trash, and put each out in the designated place on the appropriate collection day.
Do not leave garbage on the veranda or in other places where it might cause a nuisance to neighbors by attracting insects, giving off odors, etc.
Do not, under any circumstances, throw garbage or water from a balcony or window, in the corridors, on stairs, etc.
Don't put large sized rubbish such as furniture and electrical goods where you put out the daily garbage. In order to dispose of such items you must phone the waste management office and arrange for their disposal. Another way to get rid of these types of items, is to selling them at a secondhand shop.
Sound travels through a concrete building more easily than you might think.
When you have guests, refrain from raising your voices loudly.
At night, footsteps in the hallway, people going up the stairs, voices heard through open windows, and doors opening and closing sound even louder. Noise late at night in particular can disrupt your neighbor's sleep. Ensure that you do your part to maintain a quiet environment.
Remember that the sound of a child jumping up and down reverberates quite loudly in the unit below. Vacuum cleaners and washing machines tend to be quite noisy and may bother your neighbors. Try to use them between 8 o'clock in the morning and 9 o'clock at night.
<**騒音防止の工夫(Some devices for soundproofing)
Try spreading a carpet over a wooden floor and put on slippers with soles made of soft material such as felt.

Put a book shelf or wardrobe against walls that adjoin neighboring units.

Set your TV or audio equipment away from the wall, or not to put them directly on the floor.

Cover the feet of your chairs with fabric or rubber caps.

If you are concerned about the loud noise your closing door makes, paste polyurethane tape on the door
frame. Not only is it soundproof, but it also fills the gap between the door and the frame, providing insulation.

Try wrapping rags around drainpipes to make the sound of water flow less audiable.
Place a sound dampening mat under the washing machine.
