Home…for now

I was originally going to get a apartment similar to the one that I had last time I was here. Turns out it was taken like a day before or the day I actually arrived in Japan, so I had to find a new one. I found a good place, but it wont be open until the end of May. So in the meantime I am living with another one of the teachers from the school. Not in Kameoka but in the western part of Kyoto city. The place is huge, one of the biggest I’ve seen in Japan for the amount he pays. He used to live with his brother here (also a teacher at my school) but he recently got married and moved down to Osaka. So it worked out well for both of us; I have a roof over my head and he doesn’t have to go without a roommate for awhile with whom he can split the rent with. Click to see the full gallery.

As you can see, its almost abnormally large for an apartment in Japan. I would actually consider staying here, but on top of no parking spaces, and it not really changing the commute time even though its closer to work ,most of my friends are back in Kameoka so it’s an easy decision. I don’t really need all this space anyway, living alone and all.

Roast Factory….Touge Factory…..I can’t get away from the factories. At least with this behind my place it smells like coffee all the time, and not Kimchi ๐Ÿ˜‰

Nothing, I love it. But it has a nasty way of making everything else around it smell. I don’t like kimchi flavored milk ๐Ÿ™‚

I know what you mean. Some people buy seperate fridges for kimchi won’t ruin everything else haha.
