    Hello,

    If you are looking short-term, definitely get in touch with @hemanthraz who works for Rakuten LIFULL STAY.

    If you are looking for a long term, it can be harder… how long will you be here?

    We will be there indefinitely.  We are a family of 5 people and I need an affordable, accessible apartment.   I’m not sure where to even start looking.  My husband’s job is in Meguro-Ku.

    Gotcha!

    OK, well, for people coming to live here, they usually have the sponsoring company do the apartment rental (as you will need a guarantor etc for paperwork) as you cannot easily rent an apartment on your own here.  Assuming such a person is in your husband’s company, they can usually select “accessible” (バリアフリー) as an option when looking for an apartment on one of the housing sites.

    Here are 21 options on Home’s: https://www.homes.co.jp/chintai/theme/15106/tokyo/meguro-city/list/

    If you send that to his company contact it could be a start!
