Furniture and Appliances
Japanese apartments are typically leased completely unfurnished. You will need to purchase all bare essentials, such as a refrigerator, cooking appliances, washing machine, bedding, lights, and furniture. Sites are in Japanese unless otherwise noted.
Purchasing everything brand new can cost a lot of money. As an alternative, you may be able to find the things you need at recycle shops.
