<p>Japan House is not only a beautiful home close to University of Michigan’s central campus in Ann Arbor, but it was also envisioned as a space where people could feel comfortable speaking in Japanese. Of course, knowing Japanese is by no means a requirement. We would simply like to foster exchange of knowledge and conversation about Japanese language culture. Japan House is supportive of the ambitions of the people who live there, and the direction residents may envision for the house. Suggestions for activities such as calligraphy workshops, skill-shares, tea ceremony, movie nights, etc. are welcome! If you are interested in living in Japan House, three bedrooms will be opening up starting January 1st. Lease terms are flexible.
If you cannot move in January but interested in living at Ann Arbor Japan House when your current lease is up, let us know also. We can work it out. The entire house was modeled by an architect, who is the owner and landlord, and put lots of effort into making this a great place.
There is a large basement with laundry machines and storage space, a beautiful kitchen, spacious living room and dining area, 1.5 bathrooms, and a sauna in the backyard. The front and back gardens are beautifully designed, with lots of space to grow our own food and herbs. The driveway is shared with the next door neighbor, and has room for two or three cars. There is also plenty of street parking, except on football game days. One large bedroom is available on the top floor that spans the length of the house. There are also two bedrooms open on the second floor. One is quite large, and the other is lofted to create additional space and has a wood desk and shelves built into the wall.

to see pictures of the house. Rent will vary depending on the room, ranging from $500-$650 plus utilities and internet (wireless is already set up in the house). Let me know if you have any questions! Japanese or English is OK.
