  • How did you get interested in a Sharehouse?

    After working about a year at my first job, I came across a TV program about sharehouses. I was always interested in traveling and enjoyed staying in shared accommodations such as dormitories when I traveled. I wanted to see for myself what a sharehouse is before my marriage.

  • What made you decide to live in a Sharehouse?

    I was looking for a good location where I can commute to work without transferring to another line. A decent size room with good management was important for me too. Also, international exchange with other tenants was what I was looking for.

  • How do you feel after moving in?

    It is fun and more relaxing than I thought. When I want to socialize, I go to the living room. When I am tired after work, I just relax in my private room. The tenants are kind and respectful so I can live at my own pace. After meeting people with common interests, I purchased an annual pass for UFJ and enjoyed the time there, traveled to Kyoto, Sendai, and Morioka. I’m planning to travel abroad next year, currently discussing where to meet up with people I’ve met here.

  • What is the most memorable moment

    It’s when we made Oden together. I started making fish balls, hanpen, and gobou tempura. I amazed myself making all these food with the help of other people. Of course, the food was delicious and it was devoured instantly.

  • Is there anything you like to recommend?

    Sharehouse is a place you can meet with people from different backgrounds. Age, hometown and occupation. Tenants are all independent so you can live easy at your own pace.
