Tokyo - Japan

April 3, 2011 - PRLog -- It was Friday, March 11th at 2:46 p.m. when everyone in Tokyo stopped to look up at buildings and street lights as they began to sway and rattle from the effects of an epic 9.0 earthquake shaking Northeastern Japan. Followed by massive tsunamis and serious trouble at a nuclear power plant in Fukushima, the chain of worrisome events prompted mass movement of Tokyo’s foreign business population to Osaka, Nagoya or other “safe haven” countries in Asia and Europe.

“We started receiving emails about sudden departures, guests left their keys with our concierge or in their mailbox and just seemed to flow out of Tokyo in unprecedented numbers,” notes Ruth Shiraishi, a Director at Space Design Inc. “Many of the administrators at foreign companies were directed to work from home, and since I live in Yokohama, I myself was not able to get into the capital due to train schedule interruptions, etc., until Friday, March 18th. We continued close contact with our corporate and individual clients over the week since the earthquake and it seems most departures are considered temporary since projects in Japan for Japanese companies are still very much underway and will require people here on-site. This makes it pretty certain that we will have a whole bunch of people looking for serviced apartment accommodation in Tokyo,” Ruth continues.

With services including a 24-hour English hotline, English cable TV channels, bi-lingual staff support, etc., the fact that each building is managed entirely by Space Design and built according to Japan’s stringent anti-earthquake building codes, and that each building is within walking distance from most Tokyo hub train stations, BUREAU and B-SITE Serviced Apartments provide an excellent solution for those who require reasonably priced, comfortable accommodation with easy access to their downtown office. Each apartment features full kitchen, washer/dryer, full-furnishings, direct phone/fax line, housekeeping/linen service, etc., and prices range from 150,000 yen to 600,000 yen/month for studio and one bedroom apartments with utility fees included.

While Space Design usually attends to 150 check-ins per month, the company has predicted an increased inflow of requests over the coming weeks and months.  After the Space Design team’s quick response in preparing vacated apartments for new guests, Ruth is confident the company will be ready to make sure those returning to Tokyo feel safe, secure and literally “back home” in Japan.

Space Design’s commercial airing now on CNN-J and Fox TV.
