Oo, baby, here I am, signed, sealed, delivered, I’m yours!

So I go to like sign, but more seal, the rental contract for the house by the sea. The rental people are the model of restraint and patience. We are immediately served with cold tea but this time with optional syrup – new touch for me.

Green tea with syrup made from distilled cockle sweat

Long discussion on finer details. Many thanks to Naoko san who speaks the  language.

Who repaints the deck?

Finally the moment comes to sign and seal. I have grown to to love using my hanko but it is only a little one. I want to have a big bulging Kanji hanko. Apparently I can get one but it is a little complicated necessitating lots of registering documents. Your hanko is your proof of being you so you do not change it lightly.


Finally we complete the deal by all three parties, owner, agency and me sealing the overlap of the  top page.

My hanko is in the middle. Pitiful n’est ce pas?

So that’s it. I move into the house by the sea on 12 October.

    Hooray! Sounds and looks a great place. Is/was there an online agent’s details page we could gawp at – at least our ignorance could let us ignore the estate agent speak?
