Here are our most Frequently Asked Questions (Faq) and their answers.
To rent a room in Japan, a large amount of deposit is usually required, equivalent to 1 ~ 2 months’ rent (or key money, “shikikin” in Japanese, partially refundable), gift money to the landlord (or “reikin” in Japanese, 1 to 2 months’ rent, not refundable) and commission (1-month rent, non refundable).
Along with the first month’s rent, you need to be prepared to pay an amount equivalent to up to 6 months’ rent, possibly thousands of dollars. Moreover, these apartments are not furnished. You have to buy your own furniture and utilities are not included in the rent (a further 10,000 – 15,000 Yen/month).
At SAKURA HOUSE, we only charge the monthly stay fee, with a partial payment of this in advance to complete a reservation. Rooms are furnished and utilities are already included so you don’t have to go through the trouble of applying for services in Japanese.
When moving into an apartment in Tokyo a guarantor or a co-signer is usually required. In most cases only a Japanese national with a steady income will be taken into consideration. However with SAKURA HOUSE, a guarantor or co-signer is NOT required
|价格/租金||180,000 x 3 = 540,000||112,000 x 3 = 336,000||70,000 x 3 = 210,000|
In a share house, some of the facilities are shared. The room is private and lockable with a key, but you would have to share the common areas such as the kitchen, living room, toilets and bathroom with the other residents of the house. A share house is also called a guest house.
In an apartment, all facilities are only for you to use: it’s a fully private unit. We can offer different types of apartments to accommodate from 1 to 3 (or more) persons: from a simple studio type apartment to a 3LDK.
From Narita Airport to Shinjuku it takes approximately 2 hours. If your
flight arrives in Narita before 4:00 p.m., please come to the Sakura House Lounge on
the same day.
If the arrival time is between 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. please call us (03-5330-5250) to see whether you can still make it to Shinjuku before we close for the day.
However, if your flight arrives after 5:00 p.m., we do not recommend hurrying to our office with all your baggage, since it would not be an easy ride especially during rush hour! Instead we suggest that you take your time and relax. We recommend that you spend the first night in one of our sister Sakura Hotels and come again the next day.
