A house that connects the world

"Travel Share House-Kizuna hug-" opens in Tokyo!

A 5-minute walk from the west exit of Ikebukuro Station, a 5-story share house for 15 men and women.
What do you think of when you hear "travel"? New encounters, stimuli, touching various values, excitement, excitement to expand yourself, learning and new awareness. For those who are attracted to such keywords, this story is good news.
Traveling share houses run by Kizuna are different from share houses that you just want to save, and you can get encounters and experiences that can only be found here, where you can live as if you were traveling.
A "traveling share house" is a share house where people of completely different nationalities, genders, cultures, and ages "live like traveling" through "international exchange" in their daily lives.
A sense of scale that all 14 people in all know each other and can live in harmony. In the big city of Ikebukuro, it is a house where people all over the world can live with peace of mind, as if it were a hideaway.

A home away from home atmosphere that is worthy of being called "home.

The hug share house has a colorful design, and all the rooms have different wallpaper so you can choose the one that best suits your taste. The living room and kitchen are located on the 3rd floor, creating a new atmosphere for socializing.

The location is unbeatable. Private rooms are hard to come by in this popular property.

The house is located in a residential area, within a 5 minute walk of Ikebukuro station, and within a 5 minute walk of convenience stores, restaurants, and department stores. The house is located in a residential area, within a 5 minute walk to convenience stores, restaurants, and department stores. 5 minutes to Shinjuku station, 15 minutes to Shibuya station, and 8 train lines including JR Yamanote, Fukutoshin, and Saikyo lines.
Private rooms are hard to come by, so you might be lucky if you find one. The rent for a private room starts from 61,000 yen.

These are the people who live here.

This share house has a large number of working adults aged around 25 to 30. Because of the homey atmosphere and harmonious environment, the house is characterized by many long-term residents. There are also students as there are many universities nearby. With 14 residents, this is a great place to live for those who want to feel safe and secure.

    Q symbol

    Can I move-in even though I cannot speak local language?

    Since Kizuna House is a share house where residents interact actively with each other, we receive many comments from residents that they are able to study the language by interacting actively with their share mates. Many residents have just begun their studies or are visiting Japan for the first time.
    In particular, share houses with the concept of international exchange tend to have many people who are interested in foreign languages and cultures and want to speak English in their daily lives. Rest assured, many have actually improved their language skills since moving in!
