About Osaka

Located on the Japanese island of Honshu, Osaka is a large, modern port city known for its tasty street food and impressive nightlife. It’s sometimes called the “Nation’s Kitchen” for its Dotonbori food district, where you can get local dishes like okonomiyaki and Takoyaki. Though not quite as large as Tokyo, Osaka is still a sizeable city, with more than 20 million people living in the metro area. It’s long been the economic hub of Japan and is home to the Osaka Securities Exchange, as well as multinational corporations like Sharp and Panasonic. Osaka’s Shitenno-ji temple is the oldest Buddhist temple in all of Japan. Another famous landmark is Osaka Castle, a 16th-century historic landmark surrounded by a park of flowering fruit trees. For more active entertainment, you can go to Universal Studios Japan, the first theme park Universal built outside the United States. Osaka is also the birthplace of Bunraku and Kabuki theater. You don’t need to speak Japanese to enjoy this art form, either. The National Bunraku Theater in Osaka provides headphones with English translations for visitors.

What are Co-living Spaces?

Co-living, also known as co-housing, house-sharing, or room-sharing, is a growing trend in big cities across the country. Co-living is when a group of people—often strangers—come together to share common living spaces, save money, and enjoy a more affordable lifestyle. Apartment buildings dedicated to co-living situations will offer 2 or 3 bedroom units with common areas including a living room, kitchen and dining area. Bedrooms and bathrooms may be private or shared. Co-living differs from a typical shared rental (roommate) situation in that co-living spaces are frequently furnished, don’t require long leases, and almost always include WiFi and utilities. They can also include housekeeping services and some even offer catered functions for tenants, housemates, and their guests. Co-living property managers handle billing and repairs of the building, generally through an app. The typical demographic enjoying a co-living lifestyle are millennials and young professionals in large cities and tech hubs such as San Francisco or Austin, but they are also starting to pop up in cities around the world. People of all ages who find themselves in need of affordable housing are increasingly looking to co-living as a viable option.
