This time last week I was stressed about making the right decision, to move to Tokyo or not to move to Tokyo. It’s amazing the difference one week can make. We are now set in our decision to move to Tokyo and I feel relief and excitement. I’m ready to get back into personal training and Blaine is hoping to delve into Tokyo’s vast design community and continue to move forward on his interior and furniture design projects.

We’re deep into the apartment hunt. It’s going a bit like this: the closer we are to the center of Tokyo the smaller the space gets and the higher the rent. No surprise there and now it’s time to decide what’s more important to us, space or location.
My new employers have also recommended we check out the guest houses available in Tokyo. These places offer month to month leases and furnished apartments, which would give us more time to explore neighborhoods and determine where we’d like to live. The two guest houses we’re currently looking into are: Sakura House and Leo Palace.

Would you prefer to live in central Tokyo or have more space?
