Azabu apartment

Azabu-01

Our house-hunting is still on. Now we’ve visited an apartment in Azabu area.

Azabu-02

Azabu is near Roppongi, where a lot of foreign embassies are located. It’s a really cosmopolitan place.This apartment in Azabu is very quiet and it has a lot of green.

Azabu-03

The kitchen and the bathroom are just like the ones we used in the 70′s. They’re cutely retro!

Azabu-04

This apartment has an accessible open rooftop.

Azabu-05

If you look down from there, you can see the neighbor’s fish pond!
