We spoke with Ms. A, a resident in the Witt-Style Nakameguro share house. Moving from our Happy House Kagurazaka house to Witt-Style Nakameguro, Ms. A has experienced two of our shared houses. She told us that she has many good things to say lately.
Witt-Style Nakameguro living room
What interested you to live in a shared house?
Before I lived in a shared house, I lived alone but wanted to try to live with people from other countries. So I thought that it would be a great opportunity.
What do you like about living in Witt－Style Nakameguro?
For me, this house is a power spot! I find that I enjoy spending a longer time in this house than where I lived before. When I started to live here, my personal life has been more fulfilling too. The concrete building is stylish, the interior is nice, as is the furniture. I love the environemnt, the location, and the rent is not too high. There aren’t many residents living here so it is easy to know eachother. Because there is a private room for everyone, it is also possible to relax peacefully in our own rooms.
How would you describe Nakameguro? Do you have any favorite spots in the area?
In a nutshell, it is fashionable, haha! It is fun to be among so many stylish places. People in the area walk their dogs and it just feels like a calm and safe atmosphere. I’ve heard that models and celebrities are living in the area too.

How do you like to spend your days off?
I like to go running on the track at Komazawa Park and stretch out in Daikanyama and Nakameguro. I enjoy eating lunch and reading often in the area but I like to spend a lot of time relaxing at home as well.
What interested you to live in Tokyo?
Meeting new people! I have met many people through events here in Tokyo. There are also opportunities to be introduced to working people that have even led to my current job.
Has living in a shared house change you in any way?
Because I was mostly living by myself for a long time, there was a slight resistance I had about living with other people. When I tried it out, it worked out great.I feel that my tolerance has become more open.

Do you have any future plans in Tokyo?
Once I organize several things and save money, I`d like to go abroad or be an entrepreneur!
Do you have anything you would like to share with the readers about your experience?
People might feel nervous about living with other people compared to just living alone, but I think it is great to experience at least once. You can expand your abilities, meet many different people, and learn many different things!
