A Family Settles Down in Tokyo

A Family Settles Down in Tokyo

Name: Leigh
Location: Tokyo, Japan

Six months ago we moved from a 2,200 square foot home in Darien, Connecticut to a 1,350 square foot apartment in Tokyo, Japan. The challenge was deciding before we moved what furniture would fit and look good while keeping to a maximum of 700 square feet that could be moved internationally.

It took two months to receive our furniture shipment from the U.S. so there were no second chances! I am proud to have kept to an extremely tight budget by repurposing items from our former home as well choosing rental furniture which fit in with our style .

Thanks, Leigh!
