A joint guarantor is required when renting a private housing in Japan.

Osaka University recommends using “Coop-Rent Insure” (Joint Guarantor Agency). It is an agency specialized for foreigners, providing Rent Guarantee Service for foreign students and foreign researchers.

If a student has a new contract to start moving into residence on or after June 1, 2019, or a student who has subscribed to International Student Rental Housing Joint Guarantee System that is going to expire the compensation period but still requires a joint guarantor, we recommend the use of “Coop-Rent Insure”, a foreigner-dedicated new rent guarantee service.
