Japan is different. We know that. But what may surprise people is how different the living situations are. As two foreigners living in Japan, we share our experiences on moving to Japan, finding an apartment, and things that surprised us moving in.
Some things we talked about were setting up gas, water, and electricity utilities, how we pay rent, the lack of insulation and opportunities for air conditioning. The list goes on.
We were enjoying a bottle of Azakura Sake from Akita prefecture in Japan.
We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed making it.
