How do I find a place to live in Enoshima?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Finding a place to live in Enoshima, involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and the type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a traditional Japanese house to a modern apartment. Next, you should research the different neighborhoods in Enoshima to find one that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Consider factors such as proximity to public transportation, shops, restaurants, and parks. Once you have a clear idea of what you're looking for, you can start your search. There are several online real estate portals that list properties for rent or sale in Enoshima. Websites like Suumo, Homes, and Realestate.co.jp have English versions and offer a wide range of listings. You can also engage the services of a real estate agent. They can provide valuable local knowledge, help you navigate the Japanese real estate market, and assist with the negotiation and paperwork. When you find a property you're interested in, arrange a viewing. This will give you a chance to inspect the property and ask any questions. If you decide to proceed with a property, you'll need to submit an application. This usually involves providing proof of income and a copy of your passport. Once your application is accepted, you'll need to sign a lease agreement. In Japan, it's common to pay a deposit and key money (a non-refundable payment to the landlord) upfront. Finally, before you move in, you'll need to set up utilities such as electricity, gas, and internet. Your real estate agent or landlord can usually help with this. Remember, finding a place to live in a foreign country can be challenging, so be patient and don't rush the process," explained one person living in Enoshima, Japan.
