think it is the slum of Nagoya but I like it because it’s near the city center. It’s walking distance to Sakae so it’s very convenient.

I have lived in Shinsakae for over 10 years. I live in an apartment by myself. It’s a 2 bedroom apartment with a pretty large living room. My building is pretty shabby outside but inside it is pretty nice. When my friends come over, they really like it but they think it’s really dirty and they tell me to clean up. I have lived in my apartment since I came to Japan. There are 3 convenience stores and 2 large supermarkets nearby. My neighbors are nice but some of them work in the red light district of Nagoya. They don’t bother me and I think they are peaceful people. I would always like to live in the center of the city so my

apartment now is perfect for me. If my neighborhood was a little bit nicer, I would never think about moving.

I live in Atsuta ward and I have lived there since last year. Atsuta is in the central part of Nagoya city. It’s a nice residential area. There are a lot of families living in the area. Near my home, most of the buildings are houses though there are plenty of apartments as well. There are also many small parks in my neighborhood. I usually see a lot of young mothers with their children playing at the parks. Atsuta shrine, which is one of the most important shrines in Japan is a five minute walk from where I live. I sometimes go there to take photos. I live in a apartment, though in Japan its called a mansion. Its a pretty new building, only 2 years old. I live with my wife and son on the first floor. Our apartment is a 3 bedroom apartment with a very large balcony. We bought it new last year when we got back from Guam. I really love my apartment so I am very lucky to find a place where I enjoy living. I have a nice view of a garden with trees and plants from my living room. I also got back into gardening since we moved in and now have maple trees and other plants growing in our balcony. It feels great to be surrounded by trees and plants. It’s also very conveniently located with a bus stop, a train station and the subway all within a 5 minute walking distance. There are also plenty of shops nearby when we need to go shopping. I don’t know many of our neighbors yet, but they all seem to be friendly and nice. One thing I have noticed is that our building is like a baby factory as most of our neighbors are around our age with small children. there are so many kids in our building!
