Shared apartment

  • This accommodation is available in:
  • Fukuoka
  • Tokyo
  • Kyoto

Room-share with a Japanese resident. Staying with other people in the city gives you the opportunity to make friends easily, and go out freely, but still have a good level of privacy and freedom. In a shared apartment you have your own private room, but share the central facilities, such as laundry, kitchen, living room, bathroom. The apartments are usually owned by a Japanese person, who rents a room out to GenkiJACS students. Important differences from host families are that the Japanese owner may not be home a lot, and you are expected to take care of yourself.

Most of these apartments are quite close to the center of the city. They may or may not have Internet access. You must cook all of your own meals.

Frequently asked questions

It is like sharing an apartment. You will have your own room, but all other facilities are shared. Think of it like staying with a flatmate back in your country.
A vast majority of our Shared Apartments are owned by a Japanese person with whom you will be sharing an apartment. It is a great opportunity to practice the language and see Japan from a very different perspective.
Unfortunately not, but you are welcome to tell us what you would like to have in an apartment and what you would like to avoid. We will then do our best to find the best possible accommodation for you.
