What makes Oakhouse Special?
-The largest selection of sharehouses in Tokyo
We operate over 2700 rooms in about 160 houses, which means that you can find an Oakhouse sharehouse in many diverse areas of Tokyo. If you want the high-paced city life or a slower, laid-back one amongst the green, we have a house for you.
-The ability to move freely between sharehouses
If you want to switch to a different Oakhouse for whatever reason, you can do so easily for just a small fee.
-Easy-to-understand rent and fees
All you need in the beginning is the management fee, rent, and utilities. After that, just a lump sum of rent and utilities every month, all paid to us at once. Free Internet too! No separate payments to the gas, water, or electric companies. Also no key money or guarantor fees.
By making a deposit with us, you will receive a discount on your monthly rent. Depending on the amount you entrust to us, the amount of discount you can receive differs. You can change your rate and join or leave the membership at any time.

Oakhouse has a wide variety of houses and rooms to fit your lifestyle. Whether you need a small-office/home-office or a room close to your job, whether you need a Tokyo apartment, whether you want to share a room with a friend, or if you just need a dormitory in the city to come back to and sleep, everyone has their reasons for what they are looking for. And they are all provided at reasonable prices.
-Single room (for 1 person)
A private room outfitted with a refrigerator, air conditioner, and bedding. Great for keeping your privacy, or if you have a lot of luggage or belongings. (Kitchen, toilets, showers are shared)
-Share room (for 2 people)
Share rooms are for two people in one room. Shared rooms have cheaper rent than single rooms, but have more personal and storage space than a dormitory.
Compartments are like a sleeping car on a train, for a small, private space. Good, for example, for if you are not going to be spending much time in the house except to sleep, such as backpacking around the country, etc.
4 to 8 people share one room with bunk beds. The room has secure lockers. Again, good for if you will not likely be spending much time in the house except for sleep.
In addition, all houses have a living room and lounge space.
The shared spaces are the kitchen (with dishes and utensils included), and the shower/bathrooms. You can relax in a wider space with other residents, have meals, and use the provided computer with free internet.
If you would like more privacy than a sharehouse allows, an Oakhouse apartment may be right for you. Much like a sharehouse, Oak apartments have low initial costs and easy-to-understand fees: no need for key money, guarantor, or other fees usually incurred when looking for an apartment in Japan. You can stay for as short as 1 month and even share with a friend.
