RJIF publishes article on Nippon.com about sharehouses in Japan

On March 2, 2016, an article written by researcher Sophie Knight about the growth in sharehouses in Japan was published on Nippon.com, a site covering Japanese society and culture. Titled “A  Greater Share for the Japanese Sharehouse”, the article introduces several sharehouses that either unite people in a common interest or hobby, or else respond to the needs of under-served members of society such as single mothers and elderly people. 

The article is the last one in a series RJIF is publishing as a result of its research project into Japan’s contemporary living environment and emerging lifestyles.
