TAMA NAGAYAMA PARKVIEW
Tired of language school? Why not travel abroad by living in a share house?
Plenty of opportunities to speak English, Japanese, or others
A new life in beautiful green Tama Nagayama
Tama Nagayama is a 63-room share house. From here you can use the Keio line or Odakyu line to get to Shinjuku in 27 minutes, or Shibuya in 25. There's plenty of green nature around, so why not start a new life in the open space of Nagayama?
The house has 5 floors with an elevator. There are students and workers from Japan and other countries. It's a great environment to get to know and communicate with all sorts of people.
Social shared space
The spacious shared space and lounge has wifi. There are often welcome parties and barbecues!
A social counter kitchen
It's fun to cook alongside others in the spacious kitchen, outfitted with dishes, cookware, and appliances. Even if you're not a good cook, it's easy to challenge yourself!
Fun theater room
In the theater room, enjoy movies or games on a 55-inch screen, or foosball. There are lots of video games in the theater room, but most of them seem to be leftovers from previous residents. Well, it just means everyone has a fun time!
Move your body in the multi-purpose studio!
Play table tennis, use the training machines, do yoga, throw darts. Perfect if you want to diet, exercise, or just move around. Plus it's with your housemates, so that's more fun!
In-house language lessons
There are lots of English speakers living here so they often use the study room as a language school. Whether you want to learn English, Japanese, or something else, you can always find someone who knows something you don't, or teach someone!
Enjoy the outdoors with bbq
Past the shared living room is a wood deck onto a garden, Nagayama Garden. Here, residents hold welcome parties or barbecues, so you can enjoy outdoors too.
Feel the breeze just steps from your own door!
¥59,000〜¥63,000 per month, private rooms with storage
The private rooms are fully furnished and 12㎡. There is a bed, desk, and refrigerator, all for just ¥59,000〜¥63,000 per month, utilities included. There's plenty of storage space if you have a lot of stuff too.
The hallway walls are different on each floor so each floor has a different mood at Tama Nagayama Park View. It's a new feel every time you step off the elevator.
The house also has a women-only shower room, and each floor also has a laundry room and powder room for your convenience.
Great things nearby outside the house too!
It's more than just the share house! Enoy the whole area
The town has lots of green nature, as well as shops and supermarket outside the station. And restaurants! Outside the station is Nagayama Kenko-land Taketori no Yu, a super sento bath house, popular with the locals. The house is called Park View for a reason: nearby on top of a hill is Suwa Kita Park.
A friend of mine who lived overseas for a long time told me: "if you want to learn a language to communicate, forget school, and just immerse yourself." An overseas study program or language school costs time and money.
But at a share house, like Tama Nagayama Park View, it costs no extra time or money just to live among people learning and speaking other languages, and it's natural to communicate, and we can all learn from each other. What a great way to learn a language naturally!
