"We're gonna step and go to brand new story"

I experienced my first Japanese earthquake yesterday evening about seven. 4.9 magnitude. My table is extremely flimsy so I dove for the doorway. Nothing fell down, thankfully.

And now, what you've all been waiting for: a tour of the Emily mansion.

As you enter the front door, to your immediate left is a little alcove with a washing machine:

On one side is the toilet, complete with handwashing station:

On the other is the bath/shower. The faucet fills tub and sink:

Straight on from the front door is the kitchen:

Total lack of counter space, but the electric stove is nifty:

Passing that, the real highlight is the living/dining/bedroom:

The table folds down, and I usually sit on the cushions on the floor:

The doors under and the steps up to the futon open up:

Bonus~! My cute little bento, and my equally cute little radio:

Hi Emily, I really enjoy your posts and pictures. Don't feel obligated to read my comments to your posts if your busy, cuz unlike your posts, my comments won't be interesting or have anything important.
I'm impressed with how efficient your apartment is, especially the filler for both the tub and sink. It's much cuter than I envisioned, and everything looks new and bright.
I hope your having fun, and don't hesitate to ask for anything you need sent (like maybe koi food?).
