FAQ

  • Can I move-in even though I cannot speak local language?
    There are many tenants at Borderless House who do not speak local language or have just started studying, or who visit that country for the first time. Furthermore, the local housemates moving to Borderless House are interested in foreign languages and cultures, and many of them would like to speak English in daily life. Your housemates will be happy to help you in difficult situations, and many people have actually improved their language skills after moving in. Don’t worry!

  • Is there an age limit? Can underage persons move-in too?
    Our goal is to build closely tied communities of tenants in more or less the same age group, and our tenants to be able to communicate and socialize actively. That is why we have an age limit from 18 to 35 years. It is possible to move-in as long as the person is a high-school graduate, or below 35 years old.

  • How does everyone deal with house cleaning and throwing away the garbage?
    There is no cleaning service that takes care of the house cleaning or throwing away the garbage. Instead, rules are made among the housemates to cooperate with the cleaning. The only exception are large houses (Omori House and Itabashi-kuyakushomae House), where a cleaning service comes by once a week.
    At Borderless House, we think that the communication that is necessary for creating house rules and cleaning together is important. Communicating about these daily chores might be a new chance to learn about and deeper understand each other’s values or cultures.
