"A typical expat home or apartment in Shimoda, is often a blend of traditional Japanese and modern Western styles. The living space is usually compact and efficiently designed, with sliding doors and tatami mat flooring, a common feature in traditional Japanese homes. The kitchen is typically small but functional, equipped with modern appliances. The bathroom often includes a high-tech toilet and a deep soaking tub, another staple of Japanese homes. Many apartments also feature a small balcony, offering views of the city or the surrounding natural beauty. Some expat homes may also have a small garden or courtyard, reflecting the Japanese love for nature. The homes are usually located close to public transportation, local markets, and other amenities. Despite the compact size, these homes are designed to maximize space and comfort," remarked another expat in Shimoda, Japan.
