Rainy day Japanese house tour

I had a three-day weekend, so I finally made a video tour of our house in Nakatsu! Hope you enjoy listening to me ramble about tatami mats. (^_-)-☆

I had some technical difficulties, so it got dark while I was filming. I’ll do a daylight tour next time!

  1. Wow! That’s a nice house! Did your company pay for the key money? I heard it’s hard to rent a house in Japan especially when you’re a foreigner.

    1. Thanks! We didn’t have key money per se, but we were surprised with a set of mysterious move-in fees about a month after we got here. None of it was paid for by my contracting organization. I was lucky in that I inherited the house from my JET predecessor, and my supervisor helped me navigate rent payments and landlord interactions. I imagine if you don’t have someone to help out with those things, it might be quite difficult, especially if you don’t speak Japanese.
