I relocated to Japan for work about 6 months ago. With all the excitement of moving to a new country came the anxiety with having to find my way and settling in a land where I don’t speak the language and am not fully familiar with the cultural nuances. This is where Core Eight was instrumental in making my transition easier and helping me find a place to live. My finance and I were looking for English speaking realtors and agencies that could help with apartment hunting which is when we came across with Core Eight. Rica and her team were very professional, empathetic and supportive throughout my house search, relocation and for any support post move-in. I have really enjoyed my experience working with them. It gives me peace of mind that anytime I need support, they are just a call away and will do whatever they can to help. They showed me a wide variety of apartments matching my needs and preferences and once I settled on a option, the move in process was pretty seamless. There have no hiccups since and I have been able to work with them for any minor needs. I appreciate them helping me in a pinch where I misplaced my keys and was locked out on a Saturday night.
Kobe is a wonderful city to live in, sitting right between mountain ranges and the sea. A great place to kickstart your Japanese adventure if you’re not a native. The people are friendly, polite and the food is great. For anyone relocating to Japan or Kobe, and who doesn’t speak the language, I would highly recommend getting in touch with the Core Eight team for your housing need and meeting some wonderful people along the way.
