have difficulties looking for a regular apartment is because not

only that, a tenant must find a guarantor and also pay agent fee
& key money to the house owner which is non-refundable.
<<Requirements for Japanese standard apartments (mostly furnished)>>
*Rent + deposit + key money + agent fee payment in advance (some
districts in Japan don't require key money)
*2-year contract [Necessary to pay additional rent (1 month) when
extending the lease]
*Must have a guarantor who is capable to cover your liabilities (some
companies offer you a proxy guarantor service)
*Hand in a copy of your passport and alien registration card
(your visa must be valid)
*Deposit is not fully refundable (Cleaning fee and
other recovery fees may be deducted)
*Your history and identification will be inspected before you sign

(usually takes about a week).A little bit too much, don't you think?
