An Apartment in Japan is Charging Rent Based on Your Weight


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.
