Haruka brings with her solid experience of the international property market where she started outin 2011 working as an Administrator in a Japanese asset management company. Moving on to the investment division of a leading realtor in 2015, she became involved in the acquisition and management of high-value properties, concentrating on increasing their value before resale. Haruka also worked as a brokerage project manager before joining Benham and Reeves where she joins the Japan Desk team. A keen cook who loves the outdoor life, Haruka keeps fit by playing tennis.

Anna previously worked in the sales department of a Japanese advertising company where she learned about building strong customer relations through effective communication skills. Well organised and motivated, Anna enjoys the challenges of working in a cross-cultural environment which includes liaison with landlords based in the UK, Japan and various overseas countries. Anna greatly values the strong team ethic of the Japan Desk and looks forward to maintaining the high level of customer service that Japanese corporate tenants routinely expect. Passionate about food and travel, Anna also likes to read and practise yoga.

With a background career teaching English at a school in Japan and Japanese to foreign students, Kaiju has gained good customer-facing experience and linguistic skills. With communication and negotiating proficiency, his role is to provide Japanese tenants and our global landlords with the best mutual housing contract that suits both parties. Kaiju has developed good working relationships with many companies, some curated through his own network of contacts. His good natural instincts help him to meet the needs of our Japanese corporate tenants and landlord clients who greatly value his efforts.

Akino has good communication and diplomacy skills having worked for a Japanese insurance company for a number of years. She is fluent in English and Japanese and is a good communicator which is appreciated by our Japanese tenants and landlords. The UK way of living is different to living in Japan so Akino takes time to ensure our Japanese tenants get settled quickly into their London rental properties. To relax, Akino likes to enjoy café culture and exploring the UK’s rich culture and history.

Our Japan desk is a dedicated department employing Japanese people to provide a complete service to Japanese HR departments and their employees with their accommodation needs in London.

  • Professional and highly personal service so the process is smooth and seamless
  • 65% of properties are managed by us so we can ensure maintenance issues are dealt with very quickly
  • Even where we do not manage, we act as an intermediary with landlords to help the tenancy to run smoothly
  • Access to London's best new developments through our relationships with the largest developers in London
  • Network of 18 branches so can offer properties throughout London
  • With our One-stop 10 point plan, we offer assistance every step of the process.

We offer a number of additional services for HR departments including
