東京のシェアハウスは一期一会

東京のシェアハウスは一期一会

ドラマの影響で【東京のシェアハウス暮らし】に憧れた私は、その理想を抱いたまま地方から東京のとあるシェアハウスへ引っ越してきました。ドラマでは、若い住人たちが週末のパーティーや季節イベントでの交流を通して、関係を深めていく模様が描かれていました。私もそうなりたいと、期待に胸を膨らませて入居した初日。その理想は、あくまで理想でしかなかったんだと現実を突きつけられることに。理由は住人の1人である40代の独身男性の存在でした。ほかの住人は皆、私と年齢も近く和気あいあいとしているのですが、40代の男性はそれが気に食わないらしく、いちゃもんをつけてくるんだとか。おかげで、その男性が入居するまでは定期的に開催されていた夕食パーティーや季節イベントはすべて中止に。入居したての私としても、肩身の狭い思いをしていました。それから1ヵ月後、住人たちに朗報が届いたのです。なんと、その40代の男性が退去することに!東京から地方への転勤が理由だそうで、元から短期滞在のつもりで入居していたんだとか。なんでもシェアハウスは、短期滞在者が多いことが特徴らしいです。いい人と出会った場合は数ヶ月で別れるのは寂しいですが、今回はかなりホッとしました。近々、夕食パーティーが開かれるそうです。楽しみで仕方がありません。

The share house in Tokyo is “every meeting as a once-in-lifetime experience”

As a dreamer of “a life in share house in Tokyo,” due to the influence of drama, I have moved from the rural area to a share house in Tokyo while holding its ideals. In the drama, the young inhabitants deepen relationship with others through weekend party and seasonal events. I also wanted to be like that and moved in. However, on the first day, I found out that my ideal was just an ideal. The reason was because of a man in his forties, one of the inhabitants. All the other inhabitants are close to me in terms of friendliness as well as age, but it seems that man in their 40s do not like that friendly attitude so much and he complained about it all the time. Thanks to that, all dinner parties and seasonal events that had been regularly held were canceled. Even as I was just moving in, I had a sisappointing. A month later, good news arrived for residents; The man in his 40’s will leave! It seems to be the reason that he transfers from Tokyo to a rural area. It seems like he had a plan from the beginning that he would stay for a short time. Share houses seem to have a lot of short-term residents. When I meet a nice person and he/she leave the house, I always miss him/her but I was pretty relieved this time. A dinner party is going to be held soon. I cannot wait.
