Support upon Arrival in Japan

Our staff members will support you, by means such as referring you to housing, picking you up at the airport when you arrive in Japan and helping you complete necessary procedures after your entry into Japan. Because staff members of various nationalities are working with us, we can support you in multiple languages.

Airport pick-up

We will pick you up at Kansai International Airport when you arrive in Japan, if you want us to.
Please contact us at least a week before your arrival in Japan.
