About Us

You have a friend in Tokyo

From personal experience, I know that it’s not easy to move halfway around the world and then try to find a comfortable place to live, while dealing with a foreign culture. It helps to have a friend, someone to guide you through the process. Someone you can trust, who understands the local customs. That’s our service model for Century 21 SKY Realty. When people place their trust in us, it makes our work all the more rewarding. We enjoy finding perfect matches for people and we look forward to helping you find your ideal living space in Tokyo.


Our Services

When Noriko and I started this company, nearly 20 years ago, our goal was to provide unparalleled real estate service to the expatriate community in Tokyo. After having received more than 20 sales performance awards in Japan, we believe that we are well on the way to achieving our goal.

Today, we may be well established, but that doesn’t keep us from reaching higher. Our motivation is always ensuring the total satisfaction of our next customer. Here’s a look at the services we provide.


Residential leasing

We help people find homes away from home. Century 21 SKY Realty leases Western style apartments and houses to the expatriate community in Tokyo for monthly rental fees ranging from ¥200,000 to ¥3,000,000. We have developed an extensive database of quality properties in central and suburban Tokyo, including economical apartments, spacious homes for families and luxury residential high rises. Our bilingual agents are skilled at helping people who are new to Japan find the ideal location to accommodate their lifestyles.

Our residential services also include lease negotiation and documentation in both English and Japanese. We also provide introductions to furniture suppliers and interior design services, and we offer orientation services for expats who are relocating to Tokyo. Century 21 SKY Realty will negotiate with landlords to secure improvements to properties, installation or upgrades of curtains and household appliances, installation of telephone lines and access to cable or satellite television services.


Office leasing

We help businesses find room to work. Century 21 SKY Realty has a vast computerized inventory of commercial office space available for lease in central Tokyo. Through associated companies, we can also provide information on available office space throughout most of Japan. We can assist with property searches, financial analyses, lease negotiations, lease language and documentation and market research. Our negotiations encompass rent-free periods, reduced security deposits, landlord-funded building upgrades, rights to option space, rights of first refusal and timely return of excess space. Our additional lease-related services include introduction to service providers and the facilitation of competitive bidding for interior design services, office furniture suppliers, and information processing assessment and installation services.
