Takanawa apartment


My husband and I are currently looking for a house. We like old houses. Yesterday, we visited a 30-year old retro apartment. It gets lots of sun, and the breeze feels nice!


The interior of old properties are spacious, cute and have dreams. They’re much more fun to look at than new, uniform, energy-efficient apartments.


Since it was an interesting property I’m going to upload some pictures. As for whether we’ll live there … still thinking about it.


There are a lot of great apartments like the Takanawa apartment introduced on the “東京R不動産” Tokyo real estate referral website. Just looking around is fun!

It looks like a really nice place! I like spaces that have a lot of light, and it looks like you have some nice views of the outside as well.

Thank you for the comments, everyone!
I’m still looking for an apartment.
I’ll let everyone know when I’ve decided on one.

30 years is not old at all, in European terms ;) I don’t know about Japanese apartments, but it does look nice, and about what I would expect from a Japanese apartment! :D

Hi Claudia

Next time we are going to update another apartment.
