Using the Ninomiya House of the Japan International Science and Technology Exchange Center
This facility has been established by the Japan international Science and Technology Exchange Center (JISTEC), which works directly under the Science and Technology Agency. For placement into this housing unit, you must be a national researcher, or a family member of a researcher, at one of the national laboratories in the Tsukuba District. However, since the ministries' consolidation, the housing is also available to university students.
Additionally, because of the opening of the Tsukuba Express (TX), people from the Kashiwa and Noda Districts are permitted to submit housing applications. Finally, in order to stimulate the exchange of information and culture between international and domestic researchers, the Tsukuba housing unit is now available to Japanese as well as foreign researchers.
