Residence L

Residence L has two sizes of apartment, 2DK and 3DK co-located in the same building. These apartments are the second biggest Yamasa apartments available, the 3DK are biggest. They are located in a very quiet residential area. Residence L apartments are usually allocated to students studying at Yamasa long term, and are particularly suitable as shared accommodation for couples or young families.


Location: Although they are the furthest from the campus as the crow flies (1.5 km / 0.9 miles), they are close by bicycle. The apartments are also very close to shops (Feel News Shopping Center), restaurants, supermarkets, parks, ponds, and bus-stops. There is a 24-hour convenience store about 7 minutes (500 meters) walk away. If you are looking for convenience for getting out of town to see the sights of central Japan, these apartments are a 12 minute bicycle ride from JR Okazaki Railway Station which is on the JR Tokaido Line (the main trunk route linking Osaka - Kyoto - Nagoya - Shizuoka - Tokyo) and gives you excellent access to Nagoya, Kanayama, Mikawa-Anjo, the marina/onsen resort of Gamagori on Mikawa Bay and Toyohashi.

2DK apartments: 2DK apartments have two rooms and a large combined kitchen and dining room. The two rooms have tatami floors and are ideal for bedrooms. Alternatively one room can be used as a bedroom and the second as a lounge room. The rest of the apartment flooring is vinyl. The balcony gives these apartments a bright spacious ambiance. The space of each is 35 square meters (377 square feet).

3DK apartments: 3DK apartments have three rooms and a large combined kitchen and dining room. Two of the rooms have tatami floors and are ideal for bedrooms. The third room has a polished wood floor which is intended for use as a lounge room. The rest of the apartment flooring is vinyl. The balcony from the lounge room and main bedroom give these apartments a bright spacious ambience. The space of each is 48 square meters (approximately 521 square feet).

Common features: Both 2DK and 3DK appartments have a separate western style toilet and a separate shower and bath. They have air-conditioning and heating, and several large large cupboards in the bedrooms and loungeroom, and a unit kitchen. The kitchen has a reasonably large amount of room for food preparation. Yamasa provides a refrigerator, 2 jet gas range/cooker and an electric rice cooker, frypan, saucepan and kettle. Please note that utensils (chopsticks, knives etc) are not provided, but can be purchased cheaply at nearby stores. In the lounge room Yamasa provides a bookshelf, and 2 desks, chairs, and study lamps.

Washing machines: Because there is no coin laundry available on-site, and because local coin laundries are considered too expensive, Yamasa has installed a washing machine in every apartment for student use. At this stage we are unable to also provide a dryer, though all of the apartments have a covered balcony off the lounge room. There is also a bicycle shed.

Internet: Each room has 1 wireless router with 4 LAN 1Gbps sockets to connect you directly into the Internet for free unlimited access.

Futons: Futons are not provided but can by rented or purchased from Yamasa. See "Details of Furnishings" on this page.
