I'm not sure if I will get along with the house community.
We recommend that you actively come to the shared living room for the first month after moving in. Many of the families at Kizunaya sharehouse like people, so please be brave and talk to them or join a dinner party. You will be warmly welcomed.

Each house has its own events, such as birthday parties, welcome parties, and so on. Several times a year, we also hold fun events with all houses such as renting out an amusement park or athletic field, and online learning events.
Do I have to participate in the events?
No, you are not required to participate. This is a share house with a lot of freedom where you can get involved in the community at your own pace.
I might get tired if I have to socialize a lot.
Because Kizunaya is a community oriented share house, there are some people who have the impression that we hold events every day, but basically, we value the residents gathering when they want to. There is no requirement to participate, and the atmosphere is basically free. In addition, there are many people who love people, so there are many families who want to actively enjoy socializing in the living room, and most people feel that a living room where you can feel the warmth is better than an empty living room. So if you don't value socializing much, this is not the right place for you.
Is there an age limit?
