Nihon Agent Inc. has been proudly accomodating the foreign community in Kansai for more than 10 years. Our team of multilingual Japanese and non-Japanese staff provide real-estate related customer service in Three languages: Japanese, English, Chinese. From our establishment, we have developed our own in-house system to support smooth real estate transactions with overseas clients as well as those already living in Japan. In that time we have accumulated the appropriate know-how, training procedures, systems and practices to provide the best service to our clients.
We strive to provide a platform for community interaction through hosting events, assisting and supporting the growing, hard-working foreign community here in Kansai.
Our social media and our multilingual homepage are focused on providing information related to life in Japan to our clients here in Kansai and overseas.


Guidance from our experienced native-speaking staff with finding and contracting properties as well as our own in-house rental guarantor company ensures a stress free home search experience. Tenants and owners can rest assured all rules and regulations will be explained along with details of Japanese living, things such as how rent is paid, how to send and receive mail, and how to dispose of household garbage. A number of our staff are certified “Foreign Residents’ Living Advisors” and qualifed to provide detailed ongoing support to all out clients right up until they move out.

Weekly or monthly condominium style apartments complete with furniture and appliances are still rare in Japan. Perfect for those coming to live in Osaka with just one bag and can start immediately. Also as our short-term listings include furniture and appliances there is no need to worry about disposing of those items when moving out. These properties are popular with singles, students, couples, as well as executives and families. We plan to expand to other areas and continue to increase the number of these listings to meet a variety of needs.
