The Wheel Deal

To answer Marc is King/Marc Rulz/Marc the Great's question, I decided I would post a picture of our shower. It still amazes me that, in a country where everything is downsized, the shower, of all places, is enormous. This holds true with our last apartment as well, and seems to be a theme in Japan. I don't understand why they don't use that space as an extra closet, or a bigger kitchen or bedrooom... but honestly, I don't really care, because for once I can enjoy a spacious cleansing hole. Take a look for yourself, the entire room is a shower, and it continues to the left where the camera can't see:


On a different note, one thing we loved about our new apartment was the view of the ferris wheel. We're both suckers for stuff like that, so we were sold just at the sight of it. This is what we see everyday, as this picture was taken at the front door to our apartment. We have a similar view from the bedroom:

Japan is treating us very well so far, but since we've only left the city of Osaka twice (on day trips, no less) we're excited to come home in December and see everyone during the holidays.

Until then, supuun o motte kite kudasai! Arrigato Gozaimasu!

I think someone has a wheel fetish. You guys going to be able to survive being away from your giant spinning object in December?

yeah, we do have a bit of a wheel fetish. however, osaka is a very ugly city and the ferris wheels are the only thing giving it character, so i think that's why we like them.

maybe we'll just eat a lot of pizza over xmas to satisfy our circular needs.

A lot of pizza? Then I'm your fetish-feeding man!

Are you sure the whole room is a shower? or do you just have a very well tiled bathroom with a drain...
