Tatami Timeshare
Welcome to Tatami Timeshare!! This is a couchsurfing-esque program built by JETs for JETs! Get to know more JETs both in your area and all across Japan, all while saving money on accommodation.
To get started, first we need your information. Once you have submitted this form, we will place your pin on the map and send you the link to access! The map will only be shared with Tatami Timeshare members. From that point on, everything is managed by Tatami Timeshare members themselves - email someone you want to stay with, and check your email for potential guests. Everyone has the right to refuse. Be safe, have fun, and happy traveling!!

Please note, this community is only open to current as well as past JET program participants who are currently living in Japan.

If you have any questions, please email us at tatami.timeshare@ajet.net.
