Staff TAKUYA’s share house experience Vol.7


I wanted to move in right away, so I set my desired move-in date to about three days later. Thank you very much for your support. (I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you. haha) After the viewing of the share house, I returned to the guesthouse where I was staying. I thought I’d pack a few things for the move, but since I came to Osaka with just a carry-on case and a backpack, I didn’t have anything to pack.


Less than a week after the viewing, I arrived at the share house to move in. When I opened the door to the living room, there he was, the German guy who was playing the guitar during the viewing. He had quit his job before returning to Germany and seemed to have some free time on his hands. I signed the contract, picked up the key and went to my room to unpack. It didn’t take long.


I wanted to talk to someone as soon as possible, so I went back to the living room and found a male resident sitting on the sofa. I said hello to him and we talked for a while, and he said, “I’m going to the supermarket. Do you wanna come?” So I decided to go with him. He was very friendly. I was really surprised at how friendly people are since I came to Osaka.


When I came back from the supermarket, There were many opportunities to say “Nice to meet you! I’ve moved in today…” As I’m not good at remembering names, I couldn’t remember my share mates’ names and had to ask them again every time.


To be continued

For the residents, it’s easy to remember my name, but when I moved in, there were almost 20 other residents, so it was very difficult. haha

“Excuse me! What was your name again? There were many times when this phrase became a trigger for communication, so if you’re not good at remembering names like me, try it!
