This is my bedroom. One of the first things that surprised me about Japan was that the sun rose very early - 4am! As you can see there are no curtains or blinds on the window. When the sun came up, I woke up!
This is the living room. We had a kotatsu (炬燵). Sitting at the kotatsu in winter was great. This apartment was very very cold in the winter.
This is the kitchen. There was a small table there. We used the table for writing mostly. We usually ate our meals in the livingroom.
This is the bathroom. This bathroom was very troublesome because the water was heated by a gas heater. Also, as you can see, the wall has tiles. Tiles get very dirty and are difficult to clean. However, I learned some Japanese culture from the experience of cleaning this bathroom. I learned about Tawashi (たわし) and Kabi Kiraa (カビキラー). "Kabi Kiraa" means mold killer. Japanese bathrooms can get very moldy,
