  • Is the apartments minimum contract period short or long

No Key Money Osaka Japan Apartments

You are probably used to paying a monthly deposit when you sign an apartment lease, however don’t be fooled in Japan. Often times the money you are requested to pay when you sign for an apartment is called reiken or key money. This money is not a deposit for your apartment or the furniture it is a gratuity and will NOT be refunded. We don’t believe the practice of charging key money is good business. In fact you will only be required to provide a deposit when renting a private apartment on a long term contract.
