what was your experience like when building a house in Japan?

I recently built a house and the builder made subtle changes that really affected the entire need of owning the house and paying twice what we originally planned on paying. We car enthusiasts and when they convinced us to buy a land that was quite a bit higher than what we wanted, they told us that they would be able to make a drive way leading to our high garage that would be "safe" for our low drift car to drive up... it seems that the architect changed the height of the garage little by little without out consent. But since we didn't notice we signed the documents. (They were distracting us with other changes we made. Since we did not ask for these changes we didn't expect them to put it on the plan... I personally think they should have to pay us for a bunch of extra costs we are encountering (monthly parking for our cars, storage...) I really wish I could sue.

    To the question "what was your experience like when building a house in Japan?", I gotta admit that even though I've imagined myself living in Japan for my life, I've never pictured myself building a house here. Not that I don't want to, but just because of money... so despite your troubles, I envy you!

We're trying to head down to Kyushu for a little break later this year, and if you've been to any of the abovementioned prefectures before (or even live there!) I'd love to hear your suggestions for cool things to do and see - preferably the cool spots that guidebooks or online resources might not cover! Thanks in advance!

Living in Miyahara-shi

I have been asked to consider a role that is based in Miyahara-shi. If I went for this job I would be on my own (family will not be able to move initially). Would be good to get some idea of any expat community or life in the area. Whilst I have some very rusty and basic speaking Japanese I would need to be able to communicate at least in the early days in English. Any input?

Laundry doesn’t smell fresh

Hi guys! I was wondering about my laundry. We moved and got a new washing machine and I don’t smell the scent of the fabric softener. Is something wrong with the washing machine? I used this softener before in my parents washing machine and it works fine.
