Sorry, I still haven't had time to sit down and a) sort through my photos; or b) write anything about my various travels throughout Golden Week.
This is just a quick note to say that I purchased a table and four chairs, plus a computer desk (I didn't realize it came with a roll-y chair too!) from a recycle shop today! Including delivery, it cost me 256,000, which is pretty good, I think. (Having never purchased such furniture before, I can't be sure.)
The funny thing is even though I spent a lot of time measuring various things in my new apartment, the one thing I forgot to measure was the door width! When the delivery guys came, it turned out that the kitchen table wouldn't fit through the door! Luckily I'm on the ground floor and have a big set of windows/sliding doors facing the parking lot, so we were able to get it in that way.
I wonder, though, if I'm going to have to move everything--the sofas I'm planning on buying, the washer/dryer, fridge, etc.--through the window, since the door is ridiculously narrow: 70cm!
Oh well. I'm sure it will all work out somehow!
