Established more than 50 years ago in the spirit of co-operation, O.E.H. provides an ideal opportunity to share cultures and languages with people from all across the world.

Kansai Gaidai University

Many of our residents are students at Kansai Gaidai University which is only a 20-minute bicycle ride from O.E.H. We have 2 study rooms, a computer, an English-language library and Internet.

Not just a Gaijin House

Half of the residents at O.E.H. are Japanese. This makes O.E.H. an ideal environment for foreigners wishing to learn about Japanese language and culture.
We often choose English teachers from among the Native English speakers who live in OEH. See our teaching opportunities
