Local roommates are students from our host university, Osaka Gakuin University. We look for roommates who are enthusiastic about the program, interested in international life, and excited to share their culture with a new foreign friend.
For meals, take your pick of the city’s many cheap eateries, try out the campus cafeteria, or cook with your roommate in your shared kitchen. Grocery shopping is a great way to learn about your local community—local vendors have sustained the neighborhoods for decades. Don’t like to cook? Don’t worry. Japanese grocery stores carry a wide variety of ready-to-eat foods.
