An animal-lover moving to Japan may be disappointed to learn that most Japanese apartments are not pet friendly

Whether your pet is a dog, a cat, a hamster or some fish, you must choose an apartment that allows pets in the first place. 

Keep in mind that “pet-friendly” may apply only to certain pets.  Landlords may place restrictions on the type, size, or number of the pets allowed. Carefully check your case when asking about pet-friendly apartments


In most cases an additional security deposit will be required. This will be used for the cost of cleaning and restoration after moving out.


                         

                     

!! Attention !!

・ Nuisance barking

 In shared spaces, be considerate for those who are not good at animals (eg, hold your pet in an elevator, hallway).

・ No grooming on the balcony (because the balcony is basically a place to hang laundry, hair may scatter and stick to your clothes)

 Be careful not to get bogged hair in the bathroom

 Do not keep pets other than those agreed in the contract

 

 dog ★

 Register at a local municipal office within 30 days from the start of keeping a dog and get a tag.

・ Rabies vaccination once a year.
