We have been staying in apartments (apartman) on this trip as a way to save money. They’ve all had kitchenette’s of some sort, some better stocked than others but all quite nice. I must admit that this particular one is the most Japanese of them all. It is a square, a small square. The kitchen is the most interesting of all . The counter is really not much different in size than our kitchen in Japan. It has, however, a rather unique feature - a drying rack built into the cupboard above.
