Tokyo Share Houses: The Latest in Communal Living
The show of TOKYO EYE 2020 (NHK WORLD) explores the latest trends, meets people enjoying the share house life, and discovers the communities that are emerging from these spaces.
Large share house with pandemic-preventative measures
A sharehouse that opened in April of 2021 during the pandemic. It's built like a hotel, complete with a large lounge, cafe space, and other shared spaces with 150 seats. There are also facilities for remote work and a gym. With multiple places for residents to spread out, close quarters are avoided.
International exchange share house
A share house with a good balance of international and Japanese residents living together, allowing for cultural exchange. Japanese people can improve their English, and international residents can make friends with Japanese people and experience the Japanese lifestyle.
Africa-Japan exchange share house
The idea behind this share house is to connect Africa and Japan. It opened in August 2021. Although the current residents are only Japanese, in the future, Africans will also live there, making it a place where people can feel at home in Japan. It's also used as a venue for Africa-related events, providing a place for exchange.
