Ls Ds and Ks -The Language of Apartments in Japan.

09 Sep

Finding a house in Japan has its own special language. L = Living Room, D = Dinning Room and K = Kitchen. You’ll see apartments and mansions (and houses I’m sure, though I haven’t checked) listed like 2LDK. An apartment with 2 rooms, a living room, a dinning room and a kitchen.

Currently, my husband and I live in a 1K. It’s one room and a kitchen. The room is split in half by a red couch. Half is the ‘living room’ with its T.V., laptop, and a room for more people to sit. The other half contains three double shelved bookcases (full) and our futon.

If you’re interested, there’s a Japanese movie called 2LDK. It’s about two girls, as different as they can be, living together in and sharing the kitchen, dinning and living room. It’s…amusing. Let’s leave it at that. 🙂
