We spoke to tenants from abroad
We interviewed residents who came to Japan for various reasons such as studying abroad, working in Japan or doing a Working Holiday.
We asked about their life in a Share House, their life in Japan, their reasons for coming to Japan, what they're interested in at the moment, and other unique experiences!
The number of foreigners living in Japan is increasing. The purpose of their stay varies from foreign students, people working in Japan, people doing a Working Holiday and of course people coming to Japan as a tourist. Many of them enjoy interacting with people from other countries as well as Japanese people.
Living in Oakhouse, you can interact with people from over 100 countries around the world and experience language studies and cultural exchanges in your daily life. Why not try 'studying abroad' while living in Japan?
