5 brand new (2021) apartments you can rent now in Tokyo – June Edition

What’s better than finally being able to move into a new apartment? How about moving into a brand new apartment where you’re the very first occupant.

In this article we feature five brand new (built in 2021) apartments in Tokyo that are available to rent now. If you have been thinking about moving, summer is a great time to do so. Many people in Japan move in the spring, so agents are less busy in the summer and have more time to devote to individual clients.

All of the apartments recommended below are available through the GaijinPot Housing Service.

All English-speaking applicants are welcome to apply to the GaijinPot Housing Service. You can even apply from overseas, and have your place set up before you arrive in Japan! Features of the service include:

★ No guarantor required
★ Bilingual support
★ No Japanese required
★ Utility set up assistance
★ Bilingual concierge service after move in
★ All payments via credit card and debit card (1-month security deposit is required for debit card payment)

If none of the properties below meet your needs, please contact the Housing Service directly through the contact form and they will help match you with a suitable apartment.

The Housing Service is also holding a free webinar on how to rent an apartment as a foreigner in Japan on Wednesday, July 7th from 6:30PM (JST). It’s free to attend, but registration is required. Learn more here!
