Message from Residents

International Residence III is in a quiet residential area five minutes away from Hankyu Nishinomiya Kitaguchi Station on foot. You can go to the university by train or bus, so it's convenient for commuting, and since a shopping mall, supermarket, drugstore and other shops you need to visit for everyday items are all in walking distance, it's a very comfortable place to live. The exterior and interior of the building are so pristine, it feels as though it's never been used. The rooms get good sunlight, and you can stay cool in summertime. I live on the third floor, so the view is also outstanding. The room is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including a clothes dryer in the bathroom, a walk-in closet, and an intercom with an attached monitor. Since the manager is regularly stationed in the building, the security is comprehensive. The locker for deliveries is also great, and the soundproofed, earthquake-resistant construction helps you to live your life with peace of mind. There is car parking and bike parking on the first floor of the building, so you can park your car or bicycle there and expand your range of activities.


Q: Is there an apartment manager?

A: Other than a vacation day about once a week, the manager is regularly stationed at the building.

Q: Is there a curfew?

A: Since the apartment building also has non-student residents, there is no curfew, but avoid making too much noise at night.

Q: Can I ask the manager to receive packages for me?

A: The building has lockers for deliveries, so ask the delivery person to place your package in a locker.

Q: Are meals provided?

A: The room is equipped with a kitchenette, so you can cook for yourself. There is also a mini-fridge.
