So I live in an incredible apartment, loads of space, great kitchen, incredible views, great neighbors but is it a little too American? The style of apartment caters expressly for the US population of Okinawa. I am in Japan and I occasionally hunger for something more er Japanese.
Wind back a year or so. On my drive to work along the sea, I notice a house being built on the edge of the beach and I thought, “Hmmmm, that would be an incredible place to live.” Lo, this house is now rentable and I went to visit it today.
The place has never been lived in. The owner’s son refuses to move school and so the family is stuck in Naha for a few years.
There is an upstairs bedroom with terrace and this thing.
So, I feel I should go for this place. It is cheaper than where I live now. Mind you, I imagine there are others interested. There is also the associated hassle of moving and the fact that Japanese houses have little wall space for furniture. I would have to shed some furniture weight. Probably no bad thing.
What do you think?
