In the Japanese rental market, it is difficult for customers to gather the key money and agency fees or find the guarantor necessary, and the systems can be difficult to understand. Often customers have to make compromises on convenience, transportation, price, or space when living in central Tokyo.This causes dissatisfaction amongst foreigners trying to live in Japan and among young Japanese people as well.
Oakhouse provides a logical and reasonable answer to these issues with its share houses. More and more houses with different themes are opening with focus not only on design but on individuality, community, and livability, transforming into places not only for living but for enjoying, learning, and growing, and Oakhouse has been receiving much attention for these.
Through the Oakhouse Portal, we put effort into providing new, logical, and interesting share houses centered on young people in Japan.
In one aspect of searching for share houses, there are many who desire the privacy that an apartment or mansion type can provide.
There are also those who feel they cannot afford an apartment and choose to live in a share house. (They also have plenty of fun once they move in!)
Is there any middle ground to find a reasonable and easy-to-find house between share houses and apartments?
That's why we started Smart Rent. It requires no key money, agency fees, or guarantor.The houses are fully furnished, have already set up and free to use internet, gas, electricity, and water. It is the best way to start living as soon as possible.While share houses are focused on community and Smart Rent apartments are focused on privacy, both have the merit of being easy to rent.
We are putting effort into expanding Smart Rent apartments throughout Japan.
Social Residence is a redefining of the share house, where you not only live, but have opportunities to enjoy, learn, and grow.
Through Social Applications and Social Activity, residents and exchange and share their skills, make extra money, or promote yourself. With the Social Office, freelancers, small business people, or those with needs for a small office or home office can get things done.
We are planning to open more large-scale Social Residences in the future.
