Japan Relocation – Furniture – Ship or Replace?

Someone who is coming to Japan from abroad may have a very different set of values in regard to their furniture than someone who is leaving Japan back to their home country or elsewhere. I can imagine that when moving to Japan initially, one would want to take many things that may not be easily obtainable in Japan. On the other hand, as is the case with many expats, one leaving Japan may discard most things to start anew in their next destination. Japan relocation can be confusing at times.

What sort of approach would you take in either scenario? All the furniture, some of the furniture, or none at all? Unless you are a student, you will probably have more than a few large objects you wish to keep with you for longer. Sporting equipment, an expensive television set, or even something sentimental that has been in your family for generations.

However, if you want to keep your move sensible, leasing furniture may be one of the options to consider. Leasing makes sense when the equipment you use creates a return that exceeds its cost.  In other words, leasing allows you to set a fixed monthly payment for the use of equipment that creates an anticipated return exceeding that payment.  That way you are certain that your operation is profitable and the equipment serves its purpose.
