Our New House!

We signed the contract for our new house today! It's in the Sakuragaoka neighborhood of Yokosuka--a lovely neighborhood up only a bit of a hill (it's a challenge in Japan to find a house in a totally flat area). It's less than a 10 minute walk from Maborikaigan station, where there are a bunch of restaurants and a grocery store, etc.

Believe it or not, it used to be a SIX bedroom house (two of the bedrooms were converted into a large living room). At approx. 1300 sqft, that is a really small six bedroom house! It was built in 1975, so it's pretty ancient in terms of Japanese houses, but it's been renovated since then.

Carport on the side

Entry with shoe closets

Our dining room, a former bedroom
Hideous bathroom...but I don't think we'll be spending most of our time in there ;)

Equally hideous tub and shower room

Giant kitchen (supposed to be a kitchen/dining room). This is by far the biggest kitchen we saw.

Note that there is no dishwasher and oven!

Kitchen storage and washer/dryer hookup

Huge living room--one of the reasons we chose this house!

Stairway is steep, but we saw steeper ones!

Master bedroom

Bathroom off master bedroom

Balcony off master bedroom--you can see Tokyo Bay a little bit

Second bedroom/office

Neighbors across the street

Tatami guest bedroom

Backyard/2nd parking spot

Ready for my garden!
