My set-up: Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo is the bee’s knees.

But how quickly time flies. It took me five months to post pictures of where I live. (sorry!)

Poster I bought at the UN office in Geneva that follows me everywhere..

Memories from this summer.

Pictures of family. Still in need of photos of friends!

Treasure from Bali.

Poster I bought in Japan I’m still obsessed with!

Tiny tiny kitchen.

Nothin really to post online re: my bathroom for the world to see…so here’s a peek!

Staircase to the outside.

Fancy pants shoe rack.

This is typically where I am. Right in front my air. Skyping, eating, missing people and the beautiful places I’ve bounced around the past year, and  checking airline tickets once in a while. 🙂

"There is comfort in a window. Space. A frame on life that narrows the focus and gives us a quarter-inch of separation from what's out there, and what's in here".

Here’s the tad bit of green outside of my window I am so grateful for in this concrete jungle of Tokyo!

The end!


Tokyo: Finding an Apartment. Check.

So if any of you plan on living in Tokyo someday, you should know finding an apartment is very easy …if you are a millionaire. Cost of living in Tokyo is legendary for being one of the most expensive places in the world, and real estate prices are especially out of this world! I decided to live a little bit out of the city to save a bit of a money and to avoid living in a shoe box. My commute door-to-door is about 40minuts, thankfully without transferring subway lines, and I actually quite enjoy the more traditional rustic charm in this part of Tokyo, over the super busy neon light-filled ‘more happening’ central area. Thanks to my realtor お部屋探しCAFEヘヤギメ!, I have a place to live within my budget! Here’s a small preview 🙂

a walk in closet... for my first time my life!!! 🙂
