Kamiooka Area

When we are staying in a small apartment our my husband we decided to go the mall near the station of Kamiooka Area. That time they are lots of Bargain Sale but we didn’t buy at all because we are preparing for the moving into the new house. We all budgeted all the money for the winter trip and in the new house for sure we have to look for new pieces of furniture and anything to be used in the house. Anyhow, kids hopefully understand that we didn’t go shopping we just eat lunch and check the area only. You can watch the video below.

We also have fun while staying in this place. (as we arrived from Osaka to Yokohama)

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day!

New House

It’s been a while that I didn’t post because we are so busy moving out. Yeah, so many things to settle and need to stop the mail/letters coming to our old house as well. Anyway, here’s our new house.

IMG_4035.jpg
(front house) with our two kids (happy kids)

We bought this house from the older guy that he also bought it at an auction but he didn’t live in. He just bought it he tough he can manage to sell it alone without using an agent. But, so difficult to sell it without a sales agent here in Japan. It’s been 3 years past before he decided to post it with the sales agent in the net. We really intend to buy a house here in Japan but of course, we have to get that are far away from the central city which is much cheaper. This is was 6months decisions and some, house that we saw or trip in. The road is so narrow and some you have to climb the mountain and leave your car down the mountain and other near the sea. Which this is not safe at all because of tsunami and landslide. Then, finally, we had it. It was a residential area so, quite a neighborhood. Our neighbor here is mostly are old people. Seldom to see young kids if you find one, for sure they just visiting their grandma/grandpa.

Living and Dining, what I like about this are was the built-in rack and cabinets as well.

The Kitchen, well not like the old house we have a countertop. Lovely view on top of our dining.

Toilets and Showers: Separate toilet bowl from the bathtub & shower in the 1st floor with a mini-garden (that’s the kitchen glass door), In the 2nd floor, only a toilet and shower room no bathtub.

We have 3 rooms with the same sizes, 1 for my hubby office whenever he works from home sometimes, he has midnight conference call. Middle room will be my son’s room and last my daughter room. Every Room has a loft so, we decided its bed for the kids and below books and toys. So, we still have the standard room and master room. The standard room I use it for my craft room.

(left) The entrance of the house or Front Door (right) the Master bedroom.

Here are the small details of the house. (left to right) I don’t know that is the use of the faucet yet this is near the front door, we don’t use it yet because we still have filled with newspapers and magazines need to throw. The shoe rack, it fits all our shoes there is more space. Love it! Next, laundry room next to it was the bathroom. In the hallway, we have small storage room, great for my cleaning stuff to store. Next, the mini garden that I told you next tot he bathroom. Stairs from the living to the 2nd floor (3 pictures) lastly, walking closet, it fits all our clothes here and even the luggage as well.

Probably after one month, I hope everything will be in place and well organized house of ours. Before, signing off. What we love about this house is this garden but they need to be removed the big rocks and clean all of it.

IMG_4033.jpg

I will take pictures and videos once everything in place. Now, they are painting it. Look our house that is wrap in plastics and covered in blue.

Hopefully, this will come up clean and looks brand new. I was amazed with the work of japanese. They also, have this notebook what they did in the house.

Yokohama (short trip)

DSC_2684

We had a short trip in Yokohama (Kanagawa), just because my husband will have a final interview one of the biggest company. He had already turned it down, 2mos ago but still they do really like him and far for that his asking price has been exceeded. It’s so troublesome for us to transfer from different places here in Japan because of Kids, Schools and also their friends and we get to know our neighborhood as well.

Yokohama (横浜市Yokohama-shiJapanese: [jokoꜜhama]) is the largest city in Japan by population and most populous municipality of Japan. It is the capital city of Kanagawa Prefecture. It lies on Tokyo Bay, south of Tokyo, in the Kantō region of the main island of Honshu. It is a major commercial hub of the Greater Tokyo Area.

Yokohama’s population of 3.7 million makes it Japan’s largest city after the Special Wards of Tokyo. Yokohama developed rapidly as Japan’s prominent port city following the end of Japan’s relative isolation in the mid-19th century, and is today one of its major ports along with KobeOsakaNagoyaHakata, Tokyo, and Chiba.

We had productive trip, First we have to see the surrounding places and house trip. Yeah, a bit expensive to live in a big City like Yokohama compare to the Osaka sort of laid back life. The fast paced life in the City, kids will be develop how to be punctual and be aware of the surroundings even though the whole Japan is a Safe country. Anyway, after our house tripping, we have time to look around the area.

a

All I can say, busy street and so many people. We are going to the biggest China Town in Japan. It was really big and the food so, tasty.

b

Yokohama Chinatown (Japanese: 横浜中華街, yokohama chūkagaiSimplified Chinese: 横滨中华街; Traditional Chinese: 横濱中華街; Pinyin: Héngbīn Zhōnghuá Jiē; Cantonese JyutpingWaang4 ban1 zung1 waa4 gaai1) is located in YokohamaJapan, which is located just south of Tokyo. Its history is about 150 years long. Today only a few Chinesepeople still live in Chinatown, but it has a population of about 3,000 to 4,000. Most of the residents are from Guangzhou (Canton) but many come from other regions.

Yokohama Chinatown is the largest Chinatown not only in Japan but also in Asia (larger than Chinatowns in both Kobe and Nagasaki) and it is one of the largest in the world[citation needed]. There are roughly 250 Chinese-owned/themed shops and restaurants scattered throughout the district, with the highest concentration centered on a 300 square metre area.

And of course, trip without eating is no sense at all. We went to the Chinese food eat all you can. In short we pig out!

c

 

On the 2nd Day, In the morning and late afternoon we have house, tripping means we are looking a place to live. Afterwards, fun day for the kids we went to the “Cosmo World”.(Cosmo Clock 21)

DSC_2674

Cosmo Clock 21 is a giant Ferris wheel at the Cosmo World amusement park in the Minato Mirai 21district of YokohamaJapan. When it first opened, it was the world’s tallest Ferris wheel, until the completion of the 108-metre (354 ft) Igosu 108 in Shiga, Japan, in 1992.

History and specifications

Built for the YES ’89 Yokohama Exposition at Minato Mirai 21 in 1989, Cosmo Clock 21 was originally constructed with a height of 107.5 metres (353 ft).

In 1997 the structure was dismantled, then in 1999 relocated onto a taller base which increased its overall height to 112.5 metres (369 ft).[3][4]

Cosmo Clock 21 has 60 passenger cars,[5] each capable of carrying up to eight people. One rotation of the 100-metre (330 ft) diameter wheel takes 15 minutes.

And, we go to the Nissin Noodles Museum, and we made our own noodles. You can check the site click here.

What I like to travelling in Japan this one…

IMG_1008

LOCKER…. LOCKER …. LOCKER!!! Everywhere in the train station mostly and it was SAFE. I didn’t hear a news that they lost their valuable inside the locker. Because we have to check out 11am and our bullet train (Shin-Yokohama to Shin-Osaka) will be late afternoon we have some time to look around. So, we decided to place our luggage inside those lockers.

Even in the train have this sign board.
