I like the most about living here was: There are always different conversations going on. You're talking to different people, meeting new people. There's no single one that stands out but just the memory of the “Sense of community”, when we would all come together and just be like one, big international family. And definitely the parties. Such as welcome parties, bye-bye parties. It is just the sense of community at the end of the night! Borderless House did really help a lot because I was the most worried about just being alone in a country where you don't understand anything with the language barriers. Such as the Borderless House staff would gather events to meet new people. My housemates have been very helpful as well. They would make a phone call for you, and go to the ward office with you. So those difficulties were solved due to my own research as well as the support of my housemates and the staff here.
Living with thirteen other people made me more patient. Be aware that the house does not look like displayed on the website anymore. I'm thankful that most of the tenants at Kuramaguchi house were extremely welcoming and kind. I made great memories and hope to see some faces again some day.
Welcome and good bye parties, cooking nights, going out together, sightseeing together, movie nights, etc. with housemates! At the house, we had a big screen in the living room, basically a home cinema! And the Onsen right in our street!
The Borderless House is really friendly to a foreigner whose residence permit may expire within a year and does not apply for permanent residence. I appreciate it. As messed up as my life was, I was honoured to have known these roommates before I died. I hope everyone will have a good life in the future and don't be like me.
At borderless house you will get in touch with many different cultures, languages and individual perspectives on life – which is a wonderful thing.
