When looking for a place in Japan a lot of times it can feel like your going around in circles being shown places you don’t like and being pressured into signing on the dotted line. When I met Rica at Ffielden it was like a breath of fresh air. Not only does she speak perfect English but was knowledgeable, fully understood the expectations a westerner brings with them when finding a place, very friendly and knew exactly what I was looking. For my 18 years here in Japan she has helped us find great rental places, even walking us through our first home purchase here in Kobe! She has not only become our no# 1 place to go when looking for a place to live but she has become a very good friend as well.
