Are there certain manners or rules to abide by in a share house?
Because you would be living with others, respecting each other’s way of living is very important. Although you may be living with others who are about the same age as you, they are all businessmen, students, or part-time workers, who live at a different pace, so you will probably be expected to have a mutual understanding of each other’s living situation. Conversely, those who cannot easily come to understand the circumstances of others may have difficulty living in a share house. As a benefit of being in a share house, there will be opportunities to experience different languages and cultures, so living in a share house may be for you if you have interest in cultural exchange. By living with foreign exchange students who want to learn Japanese or another language, you teach each other new words and phrases as well as share your culture with one another.
