Making our houses and homes grow bigger by sharing them with a variety of different people from all walks of life.
Our community is made up out of people with all kinds of different backgrounds. We host people from the North of Japan all the way to the South of Europe. Work can be a tough place to make friends in Japan, but building a bond with your share mates may lead to friendships that last a lifetime.
Imagine oversleeping and getting late for work. As you open the door you are surprised to see Masa (Japanese) about to knock and check up on you. After exchanging a friendly ‘Good morning’ you see Hans (Swedish) and Jane (Chinese American) eating breakfast in the living room. Our accommodations provide you with a house filled with friends from all over the world. Building friendships with your share mates is a great and informative experience, especially in a country you might not be entirely familiar with. The opportunity to live with people from places all around the world and different backgrounds can be an eye opening experience. Learn about yourself and others by sharing customs and helping each other view the world in a different way.
Come on UP embraces the Japanese concept of ‘Wa’. The word represents many things, and could also be translated to ‘circle’. To connect, share, explore, socialize and laugh are only several of the aspects associated with ‘Wa’. The below symbols all read as ‘Wa’:
ワ: from ‘Wonderful world’.
話: kanji for ‘Talking’
わ: from ‘Laugher’
Many amazing things can happen when people from different countries live together. Here at Come on UP we enjoy connecting others through exploring the differences in our cultures.
