Living rent free for two years in a nice seaside house in Japan doesn’t sound so bad.
Those interested in doing just that can apply for this special housing offered by the Japanese interior goods brand Muji. The Mujirushi Ryohin company is selecting some lucky individuals to live for free in its “Mado no le”, or “Window House”, residences.
Muji, which is known for selling a wide selection of household goods, apparel, food and appliances is experimenting in natural light designs for houses. They will be constructing the Window House in Kamakura, Japan in the near future and are seeking people to live in them.
According to RocketNews24, the building will be two stories tall and have a total floor space of about 80 square meters or 860 square feet. The Kamakura Window House will also come fully furnished with Muji-brand furniture and appliances. The residence includes a garden and parking space.
Kamakura is located on the coast of Kanagawa Prefecture and is about 45 minutes away from Tokyo. Kanagawa Prefecture is famous for attractions like the Great Buddha statue as well countless temples and shrines.
While rent is free for two years, candidates will need to pay for their own utilities and groceries. They must also participate in photo shoots, presentations and provide feedback for the company’s project. According to Muji, the individuals will be given privacy and no hidden cameras or monitoring devices will be put in the home.
It seems that anyone is welcome to apply to live in the house including families, singles, friends and pet owners. Non-Japanese applicants who are also proficient in the Japanese language may submit an application.
Applications are open until August 31. Those selected will make their move in March 2017.
