What Are the Cost Of Tokyo International Movers?

Moving from San Francisco to Tokyo can be a daunting move to make. One of the biggest questions when it comes to a major move such as this is, “What are the costs involved with an international move?”

Every move is individually priced and will include a variety of fees including visa cost or attorney fees, airline tickets, rental or home purchasing cost, customs and taxes, auto shipping fees, international moving company fees, and other costs. Often, cell phones will need switched to one that adheres to the local cell phone providers. Moving to Tokyo can also mean you need to secure reliable childcare or purchase new health insurance ahead of the move.

Moving to Tokyo, Japan

With a current population of 37,274,000, Tokyo is a bustling, adventurous city to move to. Not only is The Land of the Rising Sun the largest city in Japan, but it is also a busy city where adventure is available around every corner. It can take some time to get used to the local customs including what to wear to the office or out to dinner, how to communicate with others and even the best ways to locate the perfect home.

Before a move to Tokyo should be considered, it is a good idea to learn at least the basics of Japanese so you can communicate to hail a cab, order dinner, or get around town. While you will of course find the occasional citizen that speaks English, it is not something that you will find frequently throughout the city. Having a basic knowledge of Japanese ahead of the move will be a significant help at finding your way into a new life in Tokyo.

Moving to Tokyo will require a Visa if you plan to stay. If you are a U.S. citizen planning a short trip that will last less than 90 days, a visa is not required but you will need to provide proof of a U.S. passport and a return trip plane ticket. To obtain a visa for moving to Japan, you should begin the application process no less than two months in advance of the planned trip.

General visas for students or those with family in Japan, or a work visa if you have employment already lined up, are available and can offer extended stays from months to years in Tokyo.

Tokyo has many apartments and finding the right one for you, and your overall budget can be a major task to undertake without the help of an experienced Tokyo realtor. Apartment hunting is something that requires ample cash on hand to cover the cost of the apartment as well as insurance, key costs, deposits, rental agency fees, and other required fees. Apartments in Tokyo can run well into the thousands for a small, family apartment.


Tokyo has a vast public transportation system which includes subway, train, bus, and taxi cabs. Driving your own automobile is also convenient and can easily be done when you secure reliable auto transport services to have your personal vehicle relocated to Tokyo during your move.

Making a move to Tokyo can come with a hefty price tag, but when you work with the right international moving company to manage your belongings, the right agents to assist with finding a home, and the right shippers to move you and your family overseas, it can be managed efficiently and virtually stress free.
