IKEA Japan

Since we sold most of our big furniture before leaving Washington we knew we would need to buy a few things once we got into a house. We are so thankful that we have an IKEA near our house here in Japan. It took us about 40 minutes to get there from our house which is actually closer than our IKEA was in Washington. Our little trip turned into a 3 hour adventure once inside the store. Our goal today was to buy shelving for our little pantry, organizers for everyone's closets, a mirror for the master bathroom, and a kitchen table and chairs. We finally made it out of IKEA but not without tired and cranky kids and a good chunck on the credit card. We fit some of the stuff in our car and had the rest delievered. That was totally worth every penny...I mean yen! After checking out and getting the big stuff through delivery we sat and ate IKEA hot dogs before making the drive home. I am sure we will have to come back and pick up a few more things but at least today's visit was successful!
