A little while ago a Japanese magazine came to my apartment to shoot a story on small spaces. We live in a 38 square metre apartment in Shimokitazawa. It's tiny!

(Oops I've bought a lot of extra junk since these apartment shots were taken. And look over here to see how it looked before we moved in! I can't believe it's been almost three years since I moved to Tokyo!)

    1. Thanks Jennifer! Yes actually it's super airy here. Yesterday my Japanese teacher was here for a lesson and she commented on how lovely the breeze is here. And I have a confession - the tray of mt tapes is embarrassingly only 5% of my collection! eeep!
