Accommodation - Longstay


    Hokkaido Tracks

    Apartment-style accommodation and houses can be found in most major cities throughout the country and is ideal for visitors who are planning an extended stay in Japan or for those travelling as a group or with family. Apartment Hotels generally require their guests to stay for a minimum of one-week (one-month in some cases). The accommodation varies between establishments and may be offered as either private rooms with shared facilities or as self-contained apartments.

    In some instances guests will be required to pay a refundable deposit. The amount of the deposit depends on the length of stay but is generally in the range of one to two months rent in advance for a stay of one month or more. Guests are often requested to supply some form of identification, such as a passport, and non Japanese-speaking guests may also need to name a Japanese guarantor.

    Prices for Apartment Hotel accommodation vary greatly depending on location and quality. You can expect to pay anywhere between ¥40,000 to ¥200,000 per month based on single occupancy. Prices do not usually include taxes or the cost of utilities.

    There is no better way to fully immerse oneself in Japanese rural life than through Wwoof Japan.

    Wwoofing is a means of gaining a taste of rural life by living and working with a host family, receiving accommodation and meals in return for the work you do. While the organisation began as a way of promoting organic farming, opportunities now exist in all manner of fields - you can assist in Ryokan (traditional Japanese-style inns), ski resorts, and even temples!

    It is entirely flexible, with stays lasting from a few days to several months; and as possibilities extend from Hokkaido to Okinawa, you are bound to find a place suited to you.
