I looked for an apartment which is clean, spacious and close to my campus. With the help of a Japanese friend, I went around to several real estate agencies and I decided on an apartment that satisfied my requirements. The rent is on the high side, but I can use the internet for free. The reinforced concrete building provides me a quiet environment and good security. Moreover the place is so close to the university campus!
I frequently do my school assignments at home, so I try to keep my room tidy.

I don't cook very often, but there are many restaurants nearby so I don't feel any inconvenience. I often go to potluck home parties with my friends. I never get homesick because many of my friends live nearby and we can easily visit one another.


My hobby is photography, so I created a mini studio in my apartment. I enjoy taking pictures of my own artworks and small items in my mini studio.
