This is a guest post written by our special guest, Elbert, from the Ch-ch-changes Podcast

Note:

  1. Ehime prefecture is actually on the northwest side of Shikoku island, not the northeast as mentioned by Elbert [sorry, I’ve always been directionally-challenged].
  2. A “mansion” in Japan is a condominium-style rental apartment.

Japan: A Story of Love and Hate (2008):

“Naoki once had it all – the fast car, the executive home. Boss of his own business he lived the good-life when Japan’s economy was at its height. Then the bubble burst – and he met Yoshie.”
