English Share 180° Kanayama was designed around the concept of studying language peacefully and naturally. It is a shared house where individuals from many different walks of life can experience a connection between the local and global. Whether you’re someone from a country outside of Japan who is interested in living and hanging out with Japanese people or a Japanese person wanting to make friends and learn English, this shared house gives you the opportunity to enjoy a foreign language learning and cross-cultural exchange experience!
