We asked expats what a typical home or apartment in Japan is like. They answered...

"A typical expat home or apartment in Japan is usually modern and well-equipped with amenities such as air conditioning, washing machines, and high-speed internet. Many expat homes and apartments also come with a balcony or terrace, providing a great view of the city. Expat homes and apartments in Japan are typically furnished with comfortable furniture and appliances, making it easy to settle in and feel at home," remarked another expat who made the move to Japan.

"I live in a "mansion" apartment, meaning it's in a high-rise building. It is normal for most people in the city to live in one. Expats might live in sharehouses or pre-furnished apartments for the lower costs and convenience, respectively," explained one expat living in Tokyo, Japan.
