  • Is there a parking space for cars or bicycles?
    Some houses have a parking space. Please check the house’s website for details.
  • 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.

  • What should I do about daily consumable goods?
    Regarding goods for your own use such as shampoo or laundry detergent, please buy them on your own.

Please cooperate with your housemates in this matter.
