そしてCome on UPでシェアハウスのマネージャーをはじめてから早1年！
Hello everyone, how is it going?
Tomorrow marks the last day of my internship at ComeOnUP. As I am working on a proposal for a partnership with another company as my ‘final gift’ for ComeOnUP, I have decided to tailor part of the proposal so that I can share it on this blog. Read below:
Why Choose Us?
Being a pioneer of the ‘share house’ concept, we choose our share houses very carefully. When we assess our share houses, we keep these few things in our mind: the location, condition and comfortability of the accommodations. You can rest assured that our share houses are able to provide you with a truly unique experience of living in Japan. We also interview our house residents to make sure that they are ‘worthy’ to stay with us, so your experience of staying with us will be enhanced.
Compared to other ‘share house’ companies, our share houses are in general slightly more expensive, and there are many reasons which attribute for this.
1) Our share houses are the actual share houses, meaning that we do not renovate them just to accommodate more residents, unlike our competitors. (We focus on our customers’ experience rather than the profits) Also, our share houses have common areas which are just big enough to be enjoyed by all of the house residents.
2) We put in more efforts to screen our house residents as we want to make sure that those who stay with us are really fond of the ‘share house’ culture. We want our house residents to feel at home when they live in our share houses and one way to achieve this is to get people who are interested in sharing their experiences and interests with each other to live together.
3) We ensure that our share houses are at their best condition whenever a new resident moves in. We inspect our share houses periodically to make sure that the house residents take good care of their houses.
4) Our share houses have good accessibility. Most of them are within walking distance to the closest train stations. It will not be long before you find yourself in some of the most populous places in Tokyo such as Shinjuku and Shibuya.
When you choose to stay with us, you can choose our share houses based on:
1) The location
2) The demographics of the house residents (Nationalities/Gender)
3) The room type (Western/Japanese)
Because of this, we are very confident that we are able to provide you with the best experience of staying in Japan by customising our share houses to meet your requirement. However, please keep these few things in your mind when you are considering to stay with us:
1) If you were to live with us, you would be responsible for the cleanliness of your house as we do not offer a cleaning service.
2) You will have to behave like an adult when it comes to dealing with yourself and also the house residents.
3) You will have to share the same vision as us on the ‘share house’ concept. A share house is not like a dormitory, not even in the slightest bit.
If you are still wondering how are we able to distinguish ourselves from our competitors, I hope that this article would be able to offer you a general idea of the perks of staying with us, which you might not be able to experience in other ‘share house’ companies. One thing that you can be certain of, though, is that our residents tend to have a higher satisfaction level compared to our competitors’.
Finally, my only wish is that, hopefully, in many years to come, ComeOnUP which truly embraces the ‘share house’ culture, will be able to stand out amongst many other self-proclaimed share house companies.
One last thing before I end this, I want to make a big shout out to Brian:
“If I were to choose someone to get lost together with me in a jungle, it would be you, Brian.” – Abel

During my fresher year at my university, I stayed in a flat. We had a common room in which we used to hang out whenever there was any event. We also had a shared laundry room. I managed to get to know a lot of people in my first week. It was all nice chatting with people from different countries but this blissful experience did not last until the second week of my stay. The common room had become so dirty that I had to lift my foot for each step I walked in the room. The laundry room was so full that I had to dry my clothes in my room. Worse, bottles of milk in the refrigerators leaked, releasing unbearable odour each time I opened the refrigerator door(s). For the rest of my stay, my fresh groceries spent most of their time with rotten food. When I moved out in September 2017, I could even find food which had already expired in November 2016.
