By Alex Gray Oct 29, 2020

BORDERLESS HOUSE is a share house community that strives to create a multicultural environment in Japan. They promote cultural exchange with Japan and other countries all over the world. To do this, they ensure each house’s ratio is 50:50, half Japanese and half foreign residents.

Living in Japan as a non-Japanese resident is difficult at times, but living in a place like BORDERLESS HOUSE means you can ask your Japanese housemates immediately for help. There are always people around to help you. And this is what makes BORDERLESS HOUSE special. BORDERLESS HOUSE is for people who want to make friends from all over the world, have fun, and get better at a language skill simultaneously. 

You are spoilt for choice as BORDERLESS HOUSE has 120 houses and over 10,000 tenants. They even have houses overseas in Korea and Taiwan; that’s how multicultural they are! Their houses are in great, convenient locations, and Tokyo houses are always within a 15-minute walk to the station. Shared rooms or private, small houses with 6 people or larger buildings with 30, we’re sure you can find the perfect home with BORDERLESS HOUSE. 


BORDERLESS HOUSE has four special programs for tenants to help build relationships and communication between residents.

Language Exchange

Get to know other residents and make friends while practicing your language skills. This is an online service that helps tenants connect and learn new language skills. Both 1 on 1 and group language exchanges are available, and because BORDERLESS HOUSE is so multinational, you can choose from many different languages.

Club Activities

Through Club Activities, residents can connect with other residents who have the same hobbies. You can enjoy both online and offline activities with residents of similar interests. Get together to enjoy your favorite pastime, share your own culture with a food party introducing your country’s cuisine, you are sure to find a club activity you want to join.

Borderless Mates Library

Through this service, you can search for a resident you are interested in connecting with. Maybe you share interests or want to know more about them or their country. Once you register, you can find someone from the large library of BORDERLESS HOUSE residents and connect with them online to learn from them and start a wonderful friendship.

This is a program that you can find great books = Mates that would be your perfect partners!

Borderless Travel

Although currently on hold and waiting for the COVID-19 travel restrictions to lift, Borderless Travel is an exceptional service for BORDERLESS residents who love to travel. Tenants can stay at BORDERLESS HOUSES around the world (Japan, Korea, Taiwan) for free from 1 week up to 1 month! A free house exchange! The moving fee is free, and you can even stay longer for a discounted price if you wish. Or just meet up with residents from houses overseas and explore the area with an insider, a local who knows all the best secret spots!
