Paying rent is the bane of existence for many, but an apartment unit in Osaka, Japan is helping locals lower their monthly rents.
With a "rent based on weight" incentive, renters are motivated to lose weight or maintain their current weight. For every 2.2 lbs. that they lose, approximately 1,000 yen ($10) gets deducted from their rent. On the flip side, if they gain weight, their rent is increased.
Lady Share House B&D in Osaka, which is the second largest metropolis in Japan, is trying to help women achieve and maintain better bodies by implementing this program.
