    ??? I can only see one house. What's the choice? Are you wanting to build a house in Japan?

    There's a lot more to a house that the outside. More important would be layout, use of space, functionality etc.

    Personally I like the second one more (the one you posted in the comments) because I feel like it looks more modern and to my tastes right now. That's if we are talking purely on appearances!

    I like the second design better also. It looks easier to maintain.

    I don't like the color of the first, but the big windows and design are up my ally. It's unique for Japan, which also makes me like the first one better. The second looks nice too though. Classy. A bit m more refined.

    I like the second one. It looks very relaxing. I like the structure also very modern.

    I will vote for the first one, because it will never out of style. After 20 years, the second house will look "old" not classy. Make sure to put a central air conditioner with good installation and exhaust ventilation system. I never see those features in Japanese house.

    I like the first one better. I love the windows, especially the triangle shaped one on the first floor. Our house has lots of windows too, I love natural light and having a great view.

    I find the 2nd one more stylish, but the first one gives more of a "home" feeling :)

    Go for the one that best suits your lifestyle for the next decade or longer; is built with integrity; and is energy efficient with sustainable design. Aesthetics are a personal choice, but choosing one that fits into the neighborhood may be a consideration.

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.

Cheap galleries in Kanto for an exhibition?

Anyone in the art community know of somewhere to exhibit art for cheap (or free)? I'm looking to host a short-term photo show. I'm looking for a very small space (even just a wall is fine) for around 10,000 a day (or less, obviously). Thanks!
