I finally have internet at my apartment so hopefully posts will be a little more regular from now on. As I’m still pretty short on time, this post will basically just be pictures from around my area – pictures are always more fun anyways!
The main room of my apartment – I also have another room, a tatami room, and wash and toilet rooms (usually the tub and toilet are separated in Japan) – I will be posting a video tour soon
The view from my tatami room – in the distance is a gift shop for crab, exclusively? Haven’t been yet cause I hear it’s expensive
The view from my main room – rice fields and mountains, aplenty
The view on the other side of my apartment – MORE rice fields and a Lawson convenience store
My new ride – I dubbed her “Minnie” for obvious reasons that may not be so obvious in these pictures…will be posting a size comparison at some point
A sign for “Tetsujin,” the local gym I joined
Walking around Kumihama – I live in Kyotango but it covers A LOT of land cause in the early 2000s, it was formed by combining six small towns – these areas are still considered towns by the locals, and the one I’m in is Kumihama
A road near where I live
My reunion with Sushi-Ro, my all-time favorite sushi place!
Chilling in a surprisingly comfortable pig chair in Tango Village
My reunion with gyuudon (beef bowl), my all-time favorite Japanese food!
Kazuranohama Beach – There’re maybe 5 or so beaches within 15-20 minutes of me and at least 20 that I’m aware of in Kyotango – I know, you’re jealous, right? Now if only the weather would be nice enough to be able to go more often…
Shotenkyo Beach – apparently one of the best beaches in Kyotango? Can’t really tell the difference between it and the other one I went to – maybe it has to do with the summer tourism, which is over now
So that’s it for now! Hopefully I’ll get a decent hunk of free time here soon so I can catch up on posting everything I’ve wanted to this past month! 😉
