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!

Bus commuter pass?

I see people with a bus commuter pass and I'm wondering if there's any information online about this? (I can find a lot of information about the train tekken commuter passes.) I want to see the prices and if it's worth it for me to buy one. If it matters, I'm looking for Yokohama area ones... Keikyu bus or Kanachu bus. (or is there one for all companies?)

Lipstick Recommendation

I am Not a makeup girl. I like chapstick, maybe one with a little color in it. That's about it. I'm a natural type and would probably get lipstick onto clothes / cups so I've just avoided using it. I've been checking out the lipstick (and tinted chapsticks) sold in drugstores (usually under/around the 1000 yen price range) but don't know anything about make up. I want to get one pink (not too bright) light feeling lipstick. Any ideas? Are they all sort of the same at that price range? Local is better, but I noticed Shiseido's are over 2000 yen each. Is it worth it? Cruelty free gets bonus points.

Japanese Men psychology for dummies

So, I have a question to ask. Maybe a guy can answer better... Anyway, all help is very much welcome. Do Japanese men answer to texting when we (women) write melo./ cheesy texts? I'm kind of straight forward and I say things as I feel them but, my boyfriend, he doesn't answer it, he puts very pragmatic answers and it's kind of like he's avoiding them, like making a detour around it. He used to reply at first, he was never cheesy, just sweet. Then... no more!!! I wonder if I said or did something wrong. He says no. But I'm starting to doubt it! Like a 6th sense! What do you think?
