We are moving apartments. After being in Minami-senju for over 8 years we decided it was time for a change. Shinjuku is certainly going to be that. It’s loud and busy, but it’s also much closer to all the places I spend my time. Google maps claims it will take me 22 minutes to get to Our Space by train, instead of the 55 minutes it was taking me. I can also walk in 45, which is amazing. Our Space is the rehearsal space used by Tokyo Comedy Store, Tokyo International Players, and TIP Youth, so at times I feel like I spend my life either at Our Space or travelling to Our Space.
Packing was a bit of a disaster, and far too much of it has been left to M. I won’t be at home during the actual move, as I arrived in the UK this morning to study for a month. It’s going to be strange when I arrive back in Tokyo as I’m not quite sure where the new apartment is. Shinjuku is a big place. I did see the apartment once, but I have no sense of direction so won’t find it again without help. Life certainly feels strange at the minute.
