Easier to use than monthly mansions

With low costs, you can stay only for the time you need

There are many cases where a foreigner may be called upon to make a sudden overseas business trip to Japan or Tokyo and they make use of “monthly mansions”, but there are also cases where high initial costs and rent for these short stays can cause a bottleneck. With Smart Rent, there are no extra fees for corporate use, and you can stay from 1 month.

If you think that a share house isn’t right for you, or you want to keep initial and monthly rent costs low, or if you want a fully-furnished apartment in Tokyo or just need a cheap place now, Smart Rent could be right for you!

Outfitted with the furniture and appliances you need, with no extra fees like key money and no guarantor necessary, Smart Rent is a convenient rental style great for both foreigners visiting Tokyo and Japanese alike!

Japanese people who go overseas for some time and then come back to Japan also may need a place to stay for awhile in Tokyo while getting things in order, or they may have a job that sends them around to various places, which makes Smart Rent an easy choice.

Oakhouse Smart Rent, alongside share houses, is there for foreigners visiting Japan as well as Japanese people making their way in the world.
