    Welcome to Ohji

    I have arrived in Ohji, Japan.

    Bringing the "kids" was quite an experience, and doing it alone was a tiring time. But, they depend on us, and we wouldn't think of leaving them behind.

    I had to drag both cages along with my own luggage.


    This is our house....about 1250 sq ft.





    Small front porch.


    Our "backyard"...

    Hey Greg, good to see you pop in. I was wondering the other day how you were doing. Looks like a nice place, but I'll bet the dogs are wondering what you did to their yard. Are you permanently hooked back up into the Intarweb?

    BTW, it might be time to change your sig. Maybe use the title of an old Eagles song...Already Gone.

    Front entrance way.


    View of entrance from inside.


    Through the door into the dining/family room with adjoining kitchen.

    Great soaking bath and bathing area. Next to it, before you enter, is the sink and laundry area.


    We have a "toilet" room on both the first and second floor, but the first floor one has the fancy "bun washing" feature, with a heated seat....


    Last room on the first floor is the living room.



    Then up the stair to the second floor.

    Good to hear from you Greg. Looks to be a nice place. A little small for my taste, but I'm sure the bun warmer/washer makes up for it.

    Thanks glenn. I actually arrived in Japan on Christmas Day, but it has take forever to get "settled", with all the registration procedures you have to go through, getting a bank account set up, company orientation, bus pass, train pass, and making arrangements to get a drivers license.... We didn't get our household goods until yesterday. I can't believe that the guys put all the boxes we packed up over a couple of months...into our house in 5 hours! (pics of that to follow).

    Well, I have yet to try out the bun washer. I'm afraid the shock of a sudden spray would be too much.... The warmer is nice on cold mornings, though.

    On the 2 floor we have two bedrooms, a walk in storage room, another "powder room" and a Japanese style tatami mat room we are currently using as our bedroom.

    Top of the stairs


    The hallway to the left leads to the two bedrooms with the storage room in between.



    This is the "Bay Window" bedroom, with the best views in the house.


    The tatami mat room.

    Don't knock the bun sprayer

    Good to see you Greg, the place looks great, it looks fairly new, and nice hardwood floors
