J&F House - Shared homes, for both international and Japanese residents, with a vibrant sense of community!
J&F House Shinjuku
The most popular house out of all J&F Houses! About 10-min from JR Shinjuku Sta. on foot!
J&F House Shinjuku is located in the center of Tokyo near JR Shinjuku Station and Tokyo Metro Shinjuku-san-chome Station. The cultural exchange between tenants from all over the world living together is very exciting! We have hosted tenants from America, Korea, Australia, Sweden, and Taiwan. It's easy to reach any destination, with great access to many train stations.
Inside the house, there is a very family-like atmosphere with 11 people living together including the house manager. The shared living area serves as a place for people to mingle and get to know each other better. It's common to see tenants cooking and going to out together as well! Sometimes we hold exchange events with tenants from other J&F Houses as well, so it's a great way to communicate and meet lots of new people.
There is a large department store, supermarket, convenience store, restaurants, 100yen shop, electronics stores, and the post office is only 30 seconds from the house which is really convenient. The entrance is locked with a card key and the house manager is always stationed so there is no need to worry about safety problems.
We are also accepting applications from those overseas who would like to live in J&F House Shinjuku. We can assist you in English at the house, or if you contact our head office, we can also assist you in Korean and Chinese. (* Please take into consideration since the house is located in a business district, there may be times when the area around the house is noisy.)

House atmosphere
There are 11 of us living together and it's very homey! There are so many places to go around here and we go out together very often. This house is the real place for international exchange!
Favorite music
Rock, R&B, Punk, J-Pop, Hip-Hop....I listen to it all!

Since J&F House Shinjuku is so popular, it's hard to find a time when we have an available room, but if you catch us at the right time, you might get lucky! I think it's an amazing experience to be able to live together with people from all over the world in the center of a huge city like Tokyo.
