Prior to moving to the Kobe area in March of this year to assume a new position at Kansai International Airport, I was very fortunate to have two former colleagues highly recommend Rica Bradshaw at ffeilden based on their individual experiences. I shared the same experience in taking advantage of her knowledge of the real estate market in the Kobe area and willingness to persevere when dealing with apartment rental contract negotiations to assist me in securing both an initial service apartment and my present residence in the Kitano area.

I would highly recommend Rica’s services without reservation.

Okuike is a world unto itself. Surrounded by national forests on all sides, yet only a 15-minute drive to the conveniences, restaurants, and culture of the greater Kobe area, Okuike offers an almost retreat-like atmosphere of serenity and solitude that attracts many who desire their own secluded oasis.
