This share house, “The Maison OLD/NEW”, renovated from a 50 plus-year-old apartment, was literally reborn as a share house. Its theme colors are pastel and it retains a nostalgic atmosphere.
This share house is recommended to everyone, including share-house beginners, because you can shop in very friendly shopping districts near the station as well as have a great life at the share house.
■Shared-areas: the living room and the second living room
The living room, the center of socializing among residents, has a long table and chairs with pastel colors lined in a cute way.
The reason why people stay here so long is that they enjoy socializing in such a lovely place.
There are cooking tools and home appliances in the kitchen. There are washing machines at outside areas, where privacy is protected with a fence. So you can start your new life without worrying.
The bathrooms and washstands are separated according to genders, which is a relief for women.
There is a must-see second living room.
At the second living room, you can lie down and relax to read magazines, watch movies and enjoy talking with other residents.
■The individual rooms with a small kitchen and a small fridge
Last, but not least, the individual rooms have a small kitchen, which is a rare feature for a share house. It is convenient to heat up pre-made food or prepare for dinner when you don’t want to make noise in the kitchen late at night. Or in the fridge you can store some food that you’d like to savor all by yourself.
The share house is conveniently located. It is just a 10-minute train ride to the center of Osaka, and in the neighborhood there is a supermarket and sport clubs. Many residents have decided to live here because of its convenience. If you are thinking of starting a new life at a share house in the Kansai area, please feel free to visit this amazing share house.
