... grass mats and sliding paper doors. The room's a bit of a shock, the only furniture's a low table and a TV. You have to make your futon bed yourself on the floor with the mattresses and sheets provided in the wardrobe.

Inside and out, everything is pristine and free of litter, which is a bit surprising because garbage cans seem not to exist outside, and even inside, they tend to be very small. One wonders what people do with garbage. It has also occurred to ...
