Hi everyone,

I am one of CSers and love traveling abroad.Thanks to couchsurfing, I could travel easily and cheaper and got many real friends!

I just graduated from Rikkyo university in last March and started working for a sharehouse company, Borderless House, from this month.

as for the info about tokyo's apartment,
Normally if you want to live in Japan, you will need to pay so much money like 6months rent in total for the 1st month just as a custom in Japan. we call it Shikikin(deposit) and Reikin(management fee). And especially foreigners will need to have a sponsor or the special person of Japanese if you want to decide to live in a normal Japanese apartment in case.

If you are looking for an apartment in Tokyo, I can help you with finding out the best room among 40 houses in central Tokyo depending on your budget and the location you like to live in.

share room from ¥44,000 a month (untility fee included)
private room from ¥67,000 a month (utility fee included)

please tell me if you are interested in it ;)
I would be glad to help you!
(even I wanna have international friends so just say hi to me whenever you wanna hang out with local Japanese in Tokyo!)

Hi Sayoko,

I am a french student and I will be studying in Rikkyo University for this fall semestre.

I do not want to go to the housing proposed by the university it is too restrictive for me.

I am looking for a roommate with japanese people or international students, I prefer younger than 30 and open to CS and dynamics.

I don't know where to look for a flat, in the Ikibukuro neighborhood close from the University? More in the center ?

The neighborhood is very important for me, I like to have everything at hand, restaurants, Movie, bars, park...

I am looking for a private room, japanese style fournished, the more services included the better.

My budget is 80 000 yen maximum all included.

Do you have enought information ?

What would you recommand me ?

Kind regards,
