Living at Tokyo Midtown

As I mentioned before, I have about 40 days where I will be "roughing it," living out of my three suitcases before my sea shipment arrives to Tokyo. Midtown Tokyo is a development with a mall, restaurants, bars, a grocery store, the Ritz Carlton, a big office building, and my residence. Check it out:

View from my balcony. I'm on the quiet side of the building overlooking a park.

Yes, that's a tv and the washer and dryer and my bathroom. The washer and dryer is the same unit. It takes about five hours to dry a load of laundry, dry cleaning it is.

The shower room, which also holds the bathtub. The whole thing can be turned into a steam room.

And the creme de la creme. Is this the thermostat? The intercom system? Actually, you are looking at the toilet controls. Light flush, heavy flush, a variety of types of "cleansings," water noises, fans, deodorizer, and even a heated seat! There are also buttons to raise and lower the seat as demonstrated below:

I haven't quite figured out the fasciation with the toilets or maybe the better question is why haven't we adapted to these in the US?!

  1. This looks awesome! Just had a chance to read all of your blogs and looks like you're having an amazing experience so far. We miss you back here but like you said we still don't have any public transportation, no Oktoberfest, and well, we DO have a Midtown :) Maybe with a little lesser view. Miss you girl!
