The World Cup is currently in full flow and at Excel we have not only been rooting for England but of course everyone’s favourite “second” team, Japan.
Our Japanese members of the Team, Mao Morita and Mariko Iisaka have been passionately supporting their country’s remarkable progress in the tournament, with the Samurai Blue defying all odds to beat two former World Champions, Germany and then Spain, in the group stages. They valiantly battled through into extra time against 2018’s finalists, Croatia, before losing agonisingly on penalties in the last 16 game.
This was the furthest they have progressed in their World Cup history and they travelled back home to Japan with their heads held high, returning to a hero’s welcome. Not before, however, both the players and the fans won the hearts of everyone around the world with their actions in the stadiums of Qatar.
You may have seen the viral footage of Japanese spectators in the stands after their matches, long after the other team’s supporters had gone home, taking the time to assist with the clean up operation by clearing up discarded rubbish in the concourse.
Footage also emerged of the dressing room that was occupied by the Japan team and the immaculate state it was left in once they had left.
This behaviour will come as no surprise to those Landlords who are lucky enough to have had Japanese Tenants in the past, as this level of courtesy and respect for one’s hosts is ingrained in Japanese culture.
We often find properties returned by Japanese tenants after long tenancies, where the condition is actually better than when the property was initially handed over. Even down to scatter cushions being returned to the exact same spot on the sofa as the original inventory shows.
This is one of the main reasons why Landlords look to rent to Japanese Tenants and a Excel, we have nearly 30 years’ experience of matching our clients’ properties with the best calibre Tenants.
If you are interested in finding out more about renting to Japanese Tenants, and to see if your property would be suitable, please don’t hesitate to book a Discovery Call with our Associate Director, Adam Ray by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 020 7691 9000.
