Anyway, I do not live in Ikebukuro. In the move out of Senzoku, which took place the day before the majority of DTS students arrived, three of us moved into a house in Edogawabashi. The house is also occupied by our male students. With one bathroom. That has the toilet, shower, and washing machine. Welcome to Japan!
While I do not have pictures of the house (and probably won't), I do have a few pictures from the surrounding area! So here is a simple little tour!
|The stairs to Narnia! Aka our house.|
|This is a shot further down the street. That is our house on the right.|
|We walk this street everyday! At is a grocery store on the left, but it is really expensive. We walk a few blocks to a cheaper one.|
|A side street off the main road to our house.|
|This is a toy store opposite of the previous side street.|
|This is our neighborhood playground. Not much to it.|
|Another shot down the main road towards our house.|
|This is the main road heading away from our house towards the station. The combine on the right has my new favorite ice cream: Cappuccino-flavored Coolish!|
|This is exit 3 from the station. It comes up right at the main road to our house. Take the train, walk up about 75 stairs, take a left, and you end up a stone's throw from the house.|
|It is around this intersection that three of the other exits to the station come out. Across the street in the background of this picture is a nice park along a canal. Some of us frequent it; it is nice.|
|If you walk up this road from the intersection from the last picture, you come back to the street that is in front of our house.|
|This is the Denny's that my roommate took me to for my birthday (my choice). It was delicious!|
