Hi, I’m going to study in Keio universiy for a year. And this will be my first time in Japan. I’ll be arriving in September 3rd. How should I look for a share house? Should I find accomodation before or after I arrive? How long will it take for me to find a suitable accomodation? If I’m going to have to stay at a hostel for a short time until I move in, please suggest good places.
My favorite for Gaijin share houses and furnished apartments is the Sakura House company. They also have cheap hotels, dorms etc…
Check out the video we made about them:
They’ve always refunded my deposit.
