so interesting. that is one tiny apartment. it seemed claustrophobic but, really, how much space does one person need? some outdoor space like a balcony or patio would make it better. what really surprised me when i watched the 'day in the life' video was how western her meals were. white toast, lots of dairy? i wonder how typical that is of young japanese. and who knew there were 7-elevens in japan?
Yes, I have been surprised by the westernised meals in her videos and those of another young Japanese woman whose videos I enjoy, Toko (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCX_nalhCljdSRS1j35NphYA).

i realised that she wasn't japanese when she got out her textbook to practise her kanji. yes, all that processed food! it was a bit horrifying. there are links to other 'housewife' sites, one in korea that i like as well, so now i am truly hooked. all those fascinating details lure me in.
