I narrowed it down to two apartments that I like and we'll be visiting them this afternoon and making a final choice. After that I have nothing on my agenda until the end of the week and I plan to spend those few days seeing the city.
Just for fun, here are a few photos I snapped as I was walking around:
The Japanese are gifted gardeners. This is a house/shop on a side street smack in the middle of the city and here someone has put out an elegant collection of potted plants. Very nice.
This is the main street near my hotel called MidoSuji Avenue. Lots and lots of trees (wasn't expecting that but it was a pleasure to see).
