  • hey guys welcome back to vlogmas and welcome to  my home today i'm finally going to be giving you  

  • a tour of my apartment here in northern japan  if you're new to my channel or if you missed me  

  • mentioning it in earlier videos i live in  a city called morioka in iwate prefecture  

  • i pay about 750 dollars a month for this apartment  so here's my entrance and you come in and there's  

  • a space to take off your shoes and i've got  this huge shoe closet which is great because  

  • i have lots of shoes what i really like is there's  a full-length mirror here right by the door so you  

  • can make sure you look decent before going out  here's the entrance to the main part of the house

  • so as you come in here you can see the living room  the sitting area i guess this is the dining room  

  • and the kitchen this table was not meant to be  this big i ordered it off amazon and it looked a  

  • lot smaller on the website so it takes up quite  a huge portion of this room i find myself like  

  • pushing it back into the corner a lot to make up  some more space here but it's a nice looking table  

  • and i ended up using it for my desk i do have  a proper desk but i guess it's more comfy to  

  • sit here the air conditioner up there keeps this  room warm so it's easier to work from this room  

  • i've got my post-it notes everywhere reminding  me of the million things i need to do today  

  • my cold tea from this morning yeah that's  basically where i sit down to eat my breakfast  

  • and dinner got a calendar on the wall here  planning out what to do for each day of vlogmas  

  • all the plants in my house are fake i travel too  much to be able to keep real plants unfortunately  

  • i've got another really pretty full-length mirror  here i like to put lots of mirrors throughout the  

  • house i just feel like it makes the space look  a lot bigger and this is my cozy living room i  

  • really like how it turned out i found this sofa  at a local furniture shop for about a hundred  

  • and fifty dollars which i thought was a pretty  good deal because i think it looks pretty fancy i  

  • think it looks like it costs more than that and  i decorated it with some really hairy pillows  

  • from amazon and a little throw blanket just to  keep it a little warmer in the winter because this  

  • fake leather material is pretty chilly to sit on  on a cold morning when i moved in i really hated  

  • the color of these curtains i thought they were  hideous but they're kind of growing on me now i  

  • feel like now the place is decorated but they kind  of work what do you guys think would you change  

  • them i'm pretty happy with them now they're likeweird gold color i don't even know how to explain  

  • it at the moment i've got my little christmas tree  over in the corner here decorated with my pusheen  

  • plushies normally i would have a different plant  here and this decently sized tv that i got off of  

  • japanese amazon for about i think it was 300 which  i think is a really good price because the quality  

  • is great i've had zero problems with it um yeah  i think i got a really good deal on that it was  

  • brand new the shelves that the tv is sitting onalso got from amazon they're kind of cool because  

  • you can take this piece and flip it over and stack  it on top of this one if you want a rectangular  

  • tv stand but i kind of like it like  this i've got my playstation down here  

  • some books um some random stationery and stuffreally need to clean up this area it's so messy  

  • and in these really cool trunks is  where i hide all my camera equipment

  • i got these off of american amazon so i'll  link them for you guys if you would like to  

  • order some hopefully they've still got them but  yeah they store tons of stuff so i hide away all  

  • my electronics and that stuff that would make my  house look super messy inside here and they also  

  • make a really good foot rest when i'm sitting on  the sofa oh also santa came early and got me the  

  • godzilla humidifier so i'll show you guys this in  a video when i get back to japan after my trip but  

  • pretty stoked about that thank you santa mark my  fine art on the wall here you guys have seen this  

  • some more art that a friend drew for me fake  cactus and yeah that's about it that's the living  

  • room i really love this accent wall here which is  not real cement it's a just a plasticky wallpaper  

  • but i think it looks pretty realistic if i hadn't  have told you would you thought it was real oh one  

  • thing i really like about the living room are  these lights on the ceiling you can dim them  

  • with the switch here and if you tap this button  really fast they change color i don't know if  

  • you can tell but they're very warm toned at the  moment uh i believe this is the mix of the two

  • and these are the cool lights you want me  

  • so you can select uh what you're in the mood  for i usually use the warm ones in the evening  

  • but yeah that's pretty fancy this is probably the  fanciest lighting setup i've ever had living in  

  • japan so i really like that and i have this little  machine here it has a camera outside my front door  

  • so if somebody knocks on the door i can see who  it is and i can talk to them using this button  

  • this room beside the living room is identical to  my bedroom but at the moment all i've got in here  

  • is this really cool lamp that i haven't found  another spot for i really wanted to put it in  

  • the living room but there's no space in there  unfortunately i love it i got it on sale at the  

  • furniture store because it was the last onethink it was about 70 dollars and then i've got  

  • my piano over in the corner i practice it when  i have time which is unfortunately not enough  

  • i would like to get some more practicing done i'm  not allowed to have instruments in this apartment  

  • but i can plug in my headphones here and play with  my headphones on so i can still play and above the  

  • piano i've got the retro godzilla postcards thatgot at nakano broadway this room also has a really  

  • strange closet set up it looks like this is a door  leading into another room but it's actually just  

  • part of the closet so this whole wall here is  a giant closet and basically i use it to store  

  • cardboard boxes that i can't throw away yet andkeep all my suitcases in here and that's about it  

  • all right moving on to the kitchen area  i recently purchased this shelf here  

  • and i love it i feel like it's just a great place  to store all these knickknacks that would normally  

  • just be crowding my countertops and tables this  is some of my tea collection i've got three  

  • tins of tea here and this is my jar of random  teas which is almost finished how crazy is that  

  • my favorite little paris plushie down here and  this is a really cool book so this is a five-year  

  • diary and you just write one line from each day  and each page is the same day but throughout  

  • five years so you can see like where you were atyear or two years or three years ago and it's it's  

  • really interesting to compare i haven't completed  the first year yet i bought this last new year's  

  • so i'm almost finished the first year it'll be  fun to move on to the second one and compare them  

  • i think i've got some random currencies in herealways have random currency and down at the bottom  

  • here i've just hung my shopping bags and a hat  this is a recent iherb haul that i haven't sorted  

  • into my cupboard yet my oatmeal that i eat almost  every morning and a fur remover to remove dirt and  

  • cat hair and stuff from my clothing if i have  any i have a really big kitchen sink which is  

  • awesome because it's always filled with  dishes i don't like doing the dishes so  

  • i have space to let them pile up in here which  is nice and it came with this little rack for  

  • drying which is also super convenient this is  great because this comes off and it's a hose  

  • my stovetop is an ih cooking stove infrared heathad the choice between gas and ih when i moved in  

  • here it was a brand new building so i could kind  of design how i wanted the room to be which was  

  • really cool i went with ih because gas scares me  i'm always scared that i'll leave the gas running  

  • or something i just really love cooking with  ih i feel like it heats the pan really evenly  

  • and it's super handy it heats up super  quickly as well i just push this button here  

  • and then this one to turn on this burner and  i can adjust the level of the burner here  

  • and then down here there's a little fish grill  that i used once to try and heat something up  

  • couldn't figure out how to use it and never used  it again so that's a shame it's kind of a waste  

  • all my spices and seasonings are just kind  of sitting in the back here because i haven't  

  • been able to find a spice rack that will fit in  this little gap i have behind the stove i would  

  • love to have a nice spice rack here but no luck  finding a thin one this little kitchen unit has  

  • so much storage in it which is greatkeep all of my cleaning supplies saran wrap  

  • stuff like that in there down here there's  another one where i keep all my stationary stuff

  • over on this side i've got

  • my dishes and my utensils and down below  is where i keep all the pots and pans  

  • oh and there's another drawer here for elastics  and all that stuff moving on to the other side  

  • i bought this little table off of amazon and  i feel like it it works perfectly here because  

  • i can kind of tuck away all the different garbage  cans that i need we've got cans pet bottles which  

  • are like plastic drinking bottles plastics  which go separate from the plastic bottles  

  • this is burnable garbage and in here i have  glass bottles it's kind of annoying because  

  • i've always got garbage sitting here waiting for  the garbage day when i'm allowed to throw it away  

  • i can throw each one away once a week i think on  top i've got my only oven i use this tiny little  

  • toaster oven for making toast or making a pizza  heating up stuff it's really all i have because  

  • i can't fit an oven in this apartment which is  really the only thing i don't like about it this  

  • is my favorite appliance so you fill this up with  water and it comes to a boil and then it keeps it  

  • at the perfect temperature for tea you can  adjust the temperature setting here depending  

  • on what kind of tea you drink i always  keep it at 98. i find like that's perfect  

  • and then you just push this button and boiling  water comes out always ready for your tea  

  • it's awesome this is an espresso machine  and some capsules i only drink the sweet  

  • ones like vanilla or chocolate caramel i've  got a pretty small fridge but i feel like  

  • it's good enough for me it's got a decent size  freezer at the bottom and i've got my microwave  

  • on top there and there's even more storage up here  which i rarely use because i can't really reach  

  • it like i can open it and then i can't reach any  further than that so i can't use the top shelves  

  • you guys have seen my pantry when i did that  organizing video where i tackled my t-shelf

  • tea shelf a random foods shelf more random  foods and down on the floor i've got bills  

  • and water bottles and soy milk and stuff like that  i love that pantry and right behind the kitchen  

  • is my bedroom you guys have seen this in most  of my videos you've pretty much seen the whole  

  • room i've got a full-length mirror in the corner  here for when i'm choosing my outfit my closet  

  • is super messy so i'm not going to show you  inside there my ever-growing glasses collection  

  • here i've just got some important stuff like my  passport um id cards stuff like that if i ever  

  • need something important it's probably inside this  little chest some fake plants i got from daiso my  

  • chanel perfume i really love this i hate most  perfumes but i think this one smells really nice  

  • and inside here i've got my jewelry collection

  • some notebooks then my bed i've still got my koala  mattress that i made a video about a long time ago  

  • it is super amazing i highly recommend koala not  sponsored please sponsor me again i love you guys  

  • a little table i got from ikea my aromatherapy kit  and this is a really cool light you can set it so  

  • that it slowly glows brighter in the morning like  the sunrise and it's supposed to help you wake up  

  • in a natural way it's really neat this  really cute cloud lamp i got from sunny  

  • thank you so much sunny as a housewarming gift  i love it so much a little lamp over here and uh  

  • some candles fake one and a real one and my bed  has this charging station so i can charge my  

  • cell phone it's pretty cool that's my little  bedroom right moving on to the bathroom area  

  • over here i've got a washing machine this didn't  come with the apartment i bought this from  

  • a thrift store when i moved in my laundry  basket my vacuum back there which is charging  

  • over on this side i've got my makeup  all the makeup that i use daily uh  

  • my face wash my electric toothbrush makeup  brushes and in here is all my skin care  

  • oh by the way there are a few skin care boxes  left if you guys are interested in purchasing  

  • my korean skincare routine i will link that video  down below just got an update and they said they  

  • have a few boxes left so if you're thinking about  getting one you can still do that more skincare  

  • in the middle i keep lots of hair products  sunscreen that kind of boring stuff

  • and got some bath powders and stuff like that  in this one so again i have so much storage  

  • here which i really love and i love this cute  little fake marble countertop down here is where  

  • i store all my makeup that i don't use ondaily basis and some skincare stuff as well

  • all right over here is my towel rack i've got my  towels my laundry basket and my laundry hangers  

  • toothpaste shampoos stuff like that here i use  this little basket to store all my hair tools  

  • and more stuff down here detergent stuff like that  

  • this is all my extra skincare that is yet to be  used got this little rack off of amazon and i love  

  • how it just fits perfectly in this little space  so thankful for that i've got one of those like  

  • absorbent stone bath mats i really like it i was  kind of like iffy about them at first but it works  

  • great and it dries quickly now this is my favorite  part of the house i am so stoked to show you guys  

  • the bathroom because it's amazing and it's the  reason why i decided to rent this apartment so  

  • first let me show you the shower it's got so many  different settings i do not use them all there  

  • is this waterfall style shower here this one  here is so interesting it's just a really thick  

  • jet stream of water that comes out and if you sit  under it kind of gives you a massage if you aim it  

  • like on your shoulders or your back it's really  cool but honestly i only ever use the regular  

  • shower head but i do have that choice if i'm  ever in the mood for a waterfall or a weird jet  

  • stream shower got all my shampoos and stuff in  the corner here now are you ready for the main  

  • attraction so i have a tv in my bathtub that's  cool it came with cable so i can watch movies  

  • or tv shows while i'm in the bath and it's a  jacuzzi bath it has jets which i can operate with  

  • this button here and this controls the lighting in  the room i can dim the lights pretty fancy let me  

  • actually dim the light so that i can show you guys  the best part this button right here watch this

  • it colors my bath different colors now it  doesn't look overly cool at the moment but  

  • when you have your bath filled with like  a nice bubble bath it will color the water  

  • the color of the lights and it looks so  cool and there's so many different choices  

  • i think there's a rainbow  setting as well the last one

  • yeah this one i think it changes color  

  • isn't that crazy this is the best bath i've ever  seen i love it so much oh and this little system  

  • here is really cool i always forget that this  isn't normal let me turn the lights back on  

  • but um so i do this to turn the hot water on and  then i can adjust the temperature of my water here  

  • and with the push of one button it means  automatic it will fill up the bathtub for me  

  • and it'll speak to me to let me know my bath is  ready when it's full how cool is that these two  

  • buttons here are really useful when you're having  a bath this one will add a little bit of cold  

  • water to your bath and this one will add hot water  to warm it up oh and this button here you can use  

  • it to talk to people in the house so if you're in  the bath but you want to talk to somebody out in  

  • the living room it's got a little microphone right  here so you can talk back and forth to each other  

  • all right and the toilet room nothing overly  fancy but again i love the accent cement wall  

  • and i just think it looks really nice i love  how it's got its own mini sink here and mirror  

  • and it's a really fancy japanese toilet that  does way too many things like my bathtub this is  

  • a bidet i can change the temperature of  the seat i can warm it up in the winter  

  • this changes the position and pressure of  the water for the bidet this is a big flush  

  • a small flush this is a jido cleaning like  automatic cleaning button i've never used  

  • that i don't know how exactly it cleans itself  but this one says massage and i've always been  

  • really curious about that but i can't  think of a situation where you would  

  • want a toilet to massage you so i never  pushed that one and yeah that's the toilet

  • and i guess that's about it i hope you guys  enjoyed this tour of my apartment if you have  

  • any questions about anything leave them down  below in the comments and thank you so much
