From the sky, To the ground
Rain is falling all around
Thunder rain and wind
A song of storms begins

Play a song, A melody
Then everybody will see
The hero of time
Has come

Now in a house with a yard, I can't really imagine going back to that in the same way.
Ahh yes, the only cold water washing machine, and having no dryer... I hung clothes on the balcony when it was sunny, but had clotheslines strung across my living room/ bedroom for the rest of the year. And it was not uncommon for stuff to take 3+ days to dry in that humidity or on cold winter days with no heat indoors. Oh, and how about when you left your clothes drying outside because it seemed like it'd be a nice day, only to have a sudden rainstorm or showers while you were at the store or work?

These are the kinds of "real life in Japan" things that people who have never been, or only visited a few days or weeks, just don't know about. Sure, they see pictures of Japanese apartments with clotheshangers outside, but they don't always consider all the implications of how common they are, and what that means...

IMHO, if you happen to be male, single and filthy rich, I just can't think of a better place to live. Almost everything is at your disposal if you have the money.

However, if you happen to be pathetically poor, there isn't a worse place to live for that same reason. All those temptations with no funds...

I think I've survived living here this long ( going to be 5 years this year ) is that I can always go back home whenever I want. I think i never really thought of living here permanently, its always been temporary.

lifestyle , well i don't need much, just give me my computer, internet connection and books and im all set.,..

there are some things that I can complain about, but why bother I choose to be here I might as well deal with it , and look on the brighter side of things
