Find Your Apartment in Tokyo

with AtHearth

A specialized real estate startup for foreign residents looking for Tokyo properties


Why are only 4% of the listings available on Tokyo portal sites?

Get access to a database used exclusively by all Tokyo real estate agents


Why is it so hard to find an apartment as an expat?

Only 4% are available
for foreign expats


Housing portals in Japan include 92% of unavailable, phishing property information.

Half of 8% of listings are only for Japanese-speaking people

Intransparent experiences
with local agents offline


Agents ask for mandatory trips to their company office offline.

Unclear details about the initial cost before signing the contract, all written in Japanese

You sometimes experience an unknown charge.

No support after moving in


Agent's job is only to find a property for you. Since they do not assist after move-in, you need to directly communicate with Japanese-speaking property management.

AtHearth helps you with everything

100% Expat-friendly curated listings of our largest database over 27,000!

What to expect after receiving listings

1. Next: Share your criteria

In order to get the best match and speed up the process, we recommend submitting a criteria form or having 30-minute chat with one of our agents.

During this time, we'll ask about your requirements for your home (such as area, train line, size, and budget), and answer any questions you have about the process.

2. Receive recommended listings 

Based on your requirements, we'll curate a list of matching properties from our Extensive Property Database.

Only shortlist foreigner-friendly, up-to-date listings. Our specialized license allows us exclusive access to new listings, which our agents will curate for you into a list of best-match properties.

3. Viewings to apply

We've replaced traditional, laborious, and confusing paper-based processes with an efficient online application.

Before you sign, we'll go through the contract with you in English to ensure you are comfortable with all the fees and terms.

4. Move in

When it's time to move into your new home, we can help you connect utilities and internet service, as well as arrange furniture rentals.

Throughout your lease, we'll support you in all of your communication with property management.

Why cheaper & faster?

We are an online-based agency / Prop-tech startup.
Using our developed AI curating product & private portal site,

We offer 100% screened listings to fit your needs and we can spend more time supporting the customers that we care about.
As a result, we don't need to spend so much time making phone calls, rent the offline office and surprise you with the extra cost to cover our expense fee for free viewing.

Normal Agencies spend so much time negotiating with each owner's agents/owners to get approval for introducing the expats and they can't possibly support the customers after move-in based on their current business model offline. (Some of them might even think it's fair to charge you for human resource cost for viewing.)
