Accommodations



General Information about accommodations in Japan

Generally speaking, to find a living place in Japan is quite difficult. It means the majority of accommodations are unfurnished and small, moreover, the price of rent is basically high. You will have to pay a lump sum of money as a deposit and/or a key money, which is non-refundable fee, when you make a contract on your rent with your landlord or realtor in many cases. It is almost the same for us, Japanese, though. We hope you can find the necessary information on accommodations you seek in this site. Good luck!

There are three International Houses (Shugakuin, Uji, and Obaku) for international researchers and students at Kyoto University. They are furnished and rent fee is not expensive. However, the number of rooms in International Houses are limited, so the competition for getting the permission to live in one is quite high. The maximum tenancy is one year.
Firstly, you are required to contact your host professor of Kyoto University if you apply for one of these International Houses to live in, in case of a researcher. The host professor will take care of all necessary arrangements.
