OYO LIFE aims to challenge the traditional Japanese rental system, which usually includes high initial costs and complicated contract flow. Our service offers low initial fees, rooms bookable by smartphone, and rooms with furnishing and appliances!

This is a completely new rental service experience!

I reserved my room before moving to Japan!

With little notice, I quickly needed to move to Japan for a company project. After contacting the OYO LIFE customer service, they helped me find a room close to my new office, and the contract was completed within a few days. It was so fast and convenient! I was able to easily complete the room contract from abroad, and moved into my apartment immediately after getting off the plane. I would recommend this service to my friends, if they decided to move to Japan!

I was able to rent my room with low initial fees!

I was hired as an English language teacher from abroad, and needed to find an apartment before arriving in Japan. While doing research, I found that Japanese apartments typically charge a substantial upfront fee - up to 5-6 times the monthly rent! However, upon finding OYO LIFE, I realized I would be able to move into a Japanese apartment without paying such a high upfront cost!

English support made the process easy!

While searching for an apartment with other real estate agents, I couldn't understand the contract or process because their agent could only speak basic English. Thanks to OYO LIFE, I was able to rent a great room in Tokyo, with their English-speaking agent guiding me through the process in my native language. Their English-speaking agent also helped me when I had some concerns with the apartment, even after moving in.
