Apartments in Japan: Part 3

The long awaited part 3 is finally here! If you have not read Apartments in Japan part 1 and/or part 2 I would recommend you do so!

I have found a place to live. Firstly, I will show you a quick walkthrough:

So, the first thing you’ll notice is: it’s not an apartment! Nope! It’s a house! An oldschool Japanese house!

I was very lucky to have found this place as it belongs to a friend of a friend of a friend. But, I found it and for the time being it is all mine! I’ll have a friend moving in soon.

The house is only ¥30,000 ($400AUD) a month, plus utilities. When my friend moves in it will become ¥25,000 each.

Why so cheap? Because it’s old. And filthy. Well… was filthy but I’ve spent a few solid days cleaning it up and now I don’t feel as though I’m going to catch a vile disease every time I walk into the house. Which is always a plus.

Location wise this place is quite good, it’s about 10 minutes away from Hirakata station and about 15-20 minutes from my usual hang out spots.

I’d like to apologise for the delay on this post. I wanted it to be a video, and I spent a while working on it but ultimately hating the final product so I decided to get back to what I do best and write about it. However, I’ll keep working on videos and once I get something I’m happy with I’ll post it up.
