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.
Long discussion on finer details. Many thanks to Naoko san who speaks the language.
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.
So that’s it. I move into the house by the sea on 12 October.
