Japanese are (in genereal) very dedicated, very disciplined, very safe and very clean. Except for the extensive recycling it also translates into not damaging anything, maintaining equipment, thorough cleaning and so on. Before moving into the apartement, the management company had already checked it. The only thing they could come up with was a ‘scratch’ on the inside of a built-in closet door. It’s almost invisible to me and I would never have discovered it myself. So there is a big blue arrow to draw your attention to it 🙂
We are already trembling upon the thought of having the apartment checked when we move out, especially with a baby that starts crawling and will soon be walking around.
The upside of Japanese taking good care of their stuff is the excellent quality of the goods in the second hand shops. Flo says thanks for his toys!
