Are you thinking of moving Tokyo in the near future? If so, January might be the perfect time for you! Here are a few reasons why:
Lower demand for housing
One of the main reasons why January is a great time to move to Tokyo is due to the lower demand for housing. Since many people are still recovering from the holiday season and preparing for the start of the new year, the demand for housing tends to be lower during this time. This means that you may have more negotiating power when it comes to securing a rental property, and you may even be able to get a lower initial fee.
More available options before peak moving season
Another reason why January is a good time to move to Tokyo is that there are usually more available options before the peak moving season in March. Many people in Japan move in March due to the traditional "Leap Day," which falls on February 29th and is considered a lucky day to move. As a result, the demand for housing tends to spike in the months leading up to March, making it more difficult to find a suitable rental property. By moving in January, you may have more options to choose from before the competition heats up.
Get settled before busy spring season
Finally, January is also a great time to move to Tokyo because it allows you to get settled in your new home before the busy spring season. The weather in Tokyo is relatively mild in January, making it a comfortable time to move and unpack. Plus, getting settled in your new home before the busy spring season means that you can take your time to explore your new neighborhood and get to know your surroundings without feeling rushed.
