A MUJI House for the price of “on the house”? That’s right. And it comes with MUJI furniture, MUJI cooking ware, MUJI stationary and everything else you would need. Sounds pretty good right? Well, 4 years after offering one lucky family the same deal, our favorite minimalist lifestyle retailer is back with a lottery in which the winner gets to live in a brand new, fully-furnished MUJI Window House (located in Kamakura) for 2 years, for free.
Although you won’t pay a single yen out of pocket to move in, the catch is that you have to participate in an ongoing monitoring process, which means talking to staff and filling out questionnaires about the experience. And you don’t have to be Japanese to participate but all communication will be conducted in Japanese. In fact, the winning family’s experience from 4 years ago was even turned into a book.
MUJI’s Window House in Kamakura is a 15 minute walk from Kamakura Station, which means you won’t be too far away from the Zaimokuza shore and Yuigahama beach. To enter the lottery you’ll first need a MUJI passport app. You’ll then need to fill out a short application and also share the lottery on Facebook or Twitter (open through August 31, 2016). The winner will selected in October 2016 and will move in March of next year.
