I had experience living in a share house overseas, so I was able to get used to living in a share house within a week of moving in. The people who lived there were all very kind and it was very easy to get used to. Of course, I had to communicate with the foreign residents in English. I had never used English in Japan before, so it was a strange feeling at first.
Since I moved in, the share house has been in a rush to get new residents, and I think there were 5 or 6 new residents in a month. At that time, a welcome party was held. The welcome party was of course the “Takoyaki Party. It’s everyone’s favorite.
When I think about it, I’ve had a few Takoyaki Party in the past, but each time I had a friend make them for me. So this may have been my first time making takoyaki. It’s a secret that I was secretly enjoying myself more than the foreign residents while they were happily making takoyaki.
The parties, which are one of the best parts of a share house, are not only fun, but also allow for deep conversations about life and dreams for the future that you wouldn’t normally have in everyday conversation. When I heard that residents wanted to be a film director or a CA, I might have pestered them with questions. I’ve only just started living here, but I was really looking forward to meeting new people.
