Currently hosting 14 individuals from 6 different countries, "Borderless House Shinjuku-Nakai 1" hosted a beloved event in its spacious living area—an all-time favorite "Takoyaki Party"!

A One-time Opportunity!? - Special Events PART1
Summer Tradition! Nagashi Somen Event @ Borderless House Asakusabashi 1
When it comes to summer in Japan, it's all about 'nagashi somen' (flowing noodles)! With the idea of 'Let's experience Japanese culture together as the Borderless House community,' residents from multiple share houses enjoyed a nagashi somen event.
Despite the scorching heat, a total of 19 people gathered to deepen their connections through games and the experience of nagashi somen. It provided an opportunity to meet residents from other share houses, resulting in many new friendships being formed.
Gazing at the Spectacular View with Housemates! Climbing Mount Fuji @ Borderless House Osaka-Bentencho
In the cozy atmosphere of Borderless House Osaka Bentencho, featuring 8 residents in a small-scale house, four residents took on the challenge of climbing Mount Fuji! As Japan's tallest mountain, it was undoubtedly exhausting... Two out of the four-faced altitude sickness, but the remaining two were fortunate to witness the beautiful sunrise.
The stunning view of Mount Fuji is evident in the photos. Climbing Mount Fuji with housemates would surely become an even more memorable and moving experience.
