3-2 To find a guarantor

In Japan, you may have a difficulty in finding a guarantor which is one of the requirements for a housing contract with the landlord. In addition the contract can be all in Japanese. The university would strongly recommend using an insurance company, or in some cases, enrolling in Comprehensive Renters’ Insurance shown below to help the stated difficulties.
