No Key Money, No Deposit Apartments in Tokyo

7 Best Apartments in Tokyo that don't require Key Money or Deposit

Finding a place to live is not easy, you need to spend time and above all, a lot of money. For most apartments, you must deposit money before moving in. In other countries usually, you need to give money down for two months’ deposits while in Japan they have what is called Reikin (礼金) which is “key money” and Shikikin (敷金) which is “deposit money”.

If you are looking for an apartment with no Reikin and Shikkin meaning you can move in without spending any initial money, this article is for you. In this article, I would like to share with you seven apartments in Tokyo where no key money or deposit is required.

I hope you can find the apartment that suits your need without spending a lot of money.
