About Pliant

What kind of property insurance
are you looking for?

If you live in Japan or own property in Japan, be sure to take out property insurance to prepare for various natural disasters. Property insurance, what we call “fire insurance” generally in Japan, covers not only natural disasters, but also damage caused by accidents that may happen in your daily life, such as fire, lightning, snow, flood, theft, and water leakage. Property insurance covers your buildings and household goods, and in addition to that, it is essential to purchase earthquake insurance.

Homeowners Insurance

Homeowners insurance is an insurance policy to be taken out when you do not live in the house you own, but rent it out to others.

Residents Insurance

Residents insurance is an insurance policy to be taken out when you are living in the house you own.

Renters Insurance

Renters insurance is an insurance policy for residents renting property.

Earthquake Insurance

Earthquake insurance covers damage caused by earthquake, eruption or tsunami.

Application procedure for property insurance

The application process is completed by email. You do not need to visit our office, nor send us any forms or documents through the mail. You can apply for insurance with your computer or smartphone from your home or wherever you are.

Smooth service and clear explanations with quick feedback in English. The quote (coverage / price) was competitive. One thing that would be helpful is to have a full view of the opt-in / opt-out options that we can subscribe to so we have the “whole picture” of the range of possivles.
