Kim Dao explains the circumstances of how she picked this small apartment to live in when she first moved to Japan. Her desire was to live near Tokyo and to not spend too much money. In this video, Kim Dao explains that she only had few personal items, so she needed furniture but since she was going to live alone, it did not need to be big.
There was nothing terribly exciting about this apartment. It seemed a bit cluttered, but keep in mind, it was quite small. The mailbox and the entrance closet were utilitarian. The walls were white with no art. The utility room, bathroom and kitchen were again, small. The kitchen had only a few wire racks for the basic necessities of cooking. It had only one burner and no standard oven. She showed a colorful kitchen towel she received from a host family in Osaka, which was nice of Kim Dao to mention them.
She then showed the outside view from her bedroom window. It was pretty. She said it was peaceful. Kim Dao then showed her makeup collection which was more interesting. After all, the Kim Dao blog more often covers beauty and lifestyle than apartment tours. For you own personal tour visit, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9xCDJdtfA8
Kim Dao moved out after a short while. Although she was satisfied with the location and the price, she was not happy with either. What was outstanding, for western apartment renters is that people in Japan are not burdened with leases.
