This is an announcement to everyone visiting our blog.
It has been decided that an urgent forum sponsored by the the Japan Sharehouse Association (themed ‘The Future of Sharehouses ~Proposal to use vacant houses~) will be held on Saturday, 19th October 2013.

Special lectures on the day will include Mr. Atsushi Miura, a man knowledgeable about social structure and the realities of young men and women’s lives (whose literary works include “Lower-class society” and “Let’s talk of ‘market share’ for Japan in the future”) and a panel discussion held by professionals in the industry regarding the increasing social significance of sharehouses. (I will also be speaking on “The current state of the sharehouse market and its future prospects”)

The forum will be attended mainly by industry professionals, however as there are also seats set aside for the general public I urge those interested to get in touch.
(※Please understand that in the event of a large turnout the general public will be let in on order of arrival or possibly by lottery)

【Event Goals】
With the family structure changing older generation households resulting in vacant properties are increasing. Examples of these vacant properties reformed into residences with their own communities will be introduced via exhibition.

The growth strategy of a Japan with a decreasing workforce supports happy and healthy men and women of all generations. We will introduce the development of many kinds of businesses supporting local older generations, small shops and younger generations with housing by making use of vacant properties.

With Tokyo decided as the host of the 2020 Olympic Games it is anticipated that attention and immigration by foreigners to Japan will increase. This is the perfect opportunity introduce the magnificence of Japan to the world and show visitors to our country Japanese hospitality with the old and the young living together learning languages in houses remodeled from these vacant properties. Here we propose a sharehouse venture to support an international city.
