Hiroshima is located in the Chugoku region, about 700 kilometers from Tokyo, and has a population of about 2.82 million, with over 50,000 foreign residents. If you’re planning on living in a share house in Hiroshima, it’s a good idea to know what the city is like first.

Here we introduce the charms of Hiroshima.

Enjoy the city and nature

Hiroshima is the central city of the Chugoku and Shikoku regions of Japan, and it has as many cultural and commercial facilities as a city. Because there is little flat land, the city is characterized by its compactness in terms of the areas necessary for daily life, including downtown areas where you can enjoy shopping and shopping malls.

On the other hand, it is easy to access to the sea and mountains, and you can enjoy the rich nature easily.

The climate is mild and pleasant.

Facing the Seto Inland Sea, Hiroshima City has a Seto Inland Sea style climate, which is mild and comfortable with little precipitation per year. Blessed with mountains, the sea and a mild climate, Hiroshima is rich in locally produced food, and is a popular tourist spot, especially for its fresh seafood from the Seto Inland Sea.

What are the advantages of living in a share house in Hiroshima?

The main advantages of living in a share house in Hiroshima are as follows.

Easy to fit into Japanese life

In many share houses, there are also Japanese guests living there, so it’s easy to get used to life in Japan. Unlike living alone, you can feel free to ask questions if you don’t understand something, so it’s a good idea to ask them to teach you about Japanese common sense or the dialect of Hiroshima.

No need to buy appliances or furniture.

Most share houses, not just in Hiroshima, come fully furnished with appliances and furniture, so there is no need to buy everything from scratch to prepare for life in Japan. If you were to buy everything by yourself, it would be quite expensive, but with a share house you can reduce the initial cost.

No guarantor required

Share houses can be contracted without a guarantor, and there is no deposit or key money. There are many cases where it is difficult for foreigners who are not familiar with Japan to rent an ordinary apartment, but with a share house, you can make a contract smoothly.

Here we will explain the differences and advantages of share houses.

Difference from Share House

Whereas a share house shares a house, a room share is where you share a room.

Room sharing is a yearly contract because you rent a general apartment, but you can sign a contract for a share house on a monthly basis. If you’d like to secure a private room in a room share, it’s best to choose a property with many rooms.

Advantages of Room Sharing

In many cases, you and your roommate will split the initial cost, so if you have a large number of people, you can save a lot of money. Therefore, you will be able to live in a high quality apartment.

Living with a roommate that you can trust is also a great advantage for peace of mind.
