My Terrace House Pilgrimage to Karuizawa Pt 1

Reading Time: 6 minutes

“こんばんは!こんばんは。テラスハウスは見ず知らずの男女6人が共同生活する様子をただただ記録したものです 用意したのは ステキなおウチとステキ車だけです 台本は一切ございません。”

The familiar opening lines of Terrace House gets me every time. For those of you not in the know, Terrace House is a hit Japanese reality series about 6 strangers building connections with each other while living together under the same roof. I first heard of Terrace House when one of my share house friends introduced it to me. Intrigued, I watched an episode and quickly got hooked into the lives of these 6 beautiful men and women.
