What we'll do

This is the last Episode of the 8-part series of Naruho-Do! Japan.
We know Japanese houses are sometime referred as rabbit huts. If you choose to live in the busy districts, it is totally true. Satsuki will show you how small my “mansion” is, and give you a documentary of “house-moving to a house in the outskirt of Tokyo”.

Through her own experience of moving, the guide, Satsuki, explained the Japanese house and moving situation. It was humorous and enjoyable to see Japanese people are really enjoying bathes and room disco in their small living space. Thank you very much.
