Hello, everyone ! Welcome to my blog !
My name is Hagi !
“What is it like to live in Japan ?”
“What is it like to live in Tokyo ?”
“What is it like to live in shearhouse ?”
I guess you have questions like that. It is difficult to imagine the life in shearhouse. Actually, I couldn’t imagine before I live here.
So, I will introduce the shearhouse-life in Japan through my daily life !
【Who am I ?】
First, I will write about myself.
I’m a Japanese guy, 27 years old. I was born in Ibaraki prefecture (the north of Tokyo).
I came to Tokyo 9 years ago. I have been in Tokyo since then.
I’m a playwright and director of indie theatrical performance. I mainly create works in my own team “mooncuproof”, and sometimes I do requested writing and directing.
【My life in Oakhouse】
I have lived here since last April, 2016. Before then, I lived in an apartment.
The reason why I decided to live in a sharehouse is to have a lot of experiences.
I thought living in here with people would give me a lot of ideas for my writing.
And, this idea was totally correct!
My housemate: Shima and Joon at living room sharing food.
I have a lot of chances to have good conversations with my housemates. Some ideas have come from daily conversation !
What is more, when I feel tired, they encourage me with kind words. (and sometimes with foods they cook !)
Sometimes we have a party.(This is a last year’s Christmas Party )
In Oakhouse Kichijoji 2, there are 18 private rooms and one dormitory in this house. I live in the dormitory.
There are 4 beds, bathroom, small table, kitchen, etc. Now ,there are 3 people in my room, Japanese(me) Korean and Thai.
Our nationality and lifestyle varies. But, sometimes we talk there with some foods and drinks. It is interesting to know various cultures !
I love my life in Oakhouse. I’ll post about my daily lives here.
Earlier this week, my friend invited me to a party in Ikebukuro. I brought one of the housemates in Oakhouse Kichijoji 2. I also brought a 360 camera called “Theta S”. I just thought it’s a good chance to try this cool camera.
Cafe Noise is located just about 10 mins by walk from Ikebukuro station. Ikebukuro is known as one of the most popular areas of Tokyo. The street around the station is crowded with people. It almost made me feel like I was walking in Shinjuku. The difference is that it’s not as business-like. It’s somewhat in between Shibuya and Shinjuku as I see many signs and neons on the wall of the tall buildings. Walking in the street for 5 mins makes you realize that it is a town for a younger generation.
I did not know Ikebukuro is such a big city.
Here we are, a room full of 30 people were already there at Cafe Noise and here’s the shot.
