My apartment in Minokamo, Gifu, where I lived for one whole year.
Perks of living out in the countryside: you get bigger apartments.
Downsides of living out in the countryside: it’s still hot as sweaty balls and your kitchen constantly smells like open sewage. (Now scroll back up again and imagine those two things.)
Also that open yard out there was like…an appliance dumping/recycling plant. I would wake up at 7am to the sounds of a half naked man throwing toilets around.
Also the TV didn’t work. It was analog and Japan had switched to digital. Later in my stay it eventually moved to the closet.
I rather miss you.
