I visited Netflix's Terrace House, and here's what I saw



Slow-burning Japanese reality show Terrace House returned to the Netflix screens this week with the release of Part 2 of Opening New Doors the last season in the mountains of Karuizawa. It is still a refreshingly refreshing rerun of the show that has retained the perfect blend of mild interpersonal drama and not much else.

I visited the house and interviewed its residents in February prior to the release of Part 1, but I resisted publishing too many of my photos. The Terrace House has a fairly long lead time even for the weekly Japanese schedule, let alone the rest of the world, so I've seen things and met people who would be spoilers.

Be Forewarned If you have not seen all of Part 2 yet, then this photo essay could tell you who is leaving and entering the house. If you agree with that, scroll down to see what I've seen.

The house is quite remote, but the producers do not do anything to disguise it.

The first thing one sees in the house is a collection of extreme sports equipment


Residents in the living room


Shion Okamoto, model. "I'm pretty confident that I have the most fun," he says. "I loved living with roommates when I was in Tokyo, and I enjoy living in an environment where six men and women live together."


Ami Komuro, University student and aspiring model. "Half of me are having fun and the other half are worried about the future," she says. "About work and things like that."


Takayuki Nakamura, a professional snowboarder. "I'd love to see some spectators interested in snowboarding after seeing a snowboarder in the Terrace House for the first time," he says. "I do not have a girlfriend, so it would be great if I could have a wonderful encounter, experience romance, and find someone great."


Tsubasa Sato, hockey player. "I think I'm my true self," she says. "I'm usually like this, I'm told that I have a very energetic and positive personality, so I think everything is just going through."


New resident, Seina Shimabukuro. Seina replaced original actor member Mizuki Haruta and is somewhat of a veteran of Terrace House – she was a house member in season one and has since made various appearances. "A serious relationship I had been in was over, and I wanted to have a lifelong relationship next," she says. "I'm here to find the person I'm going to marry! Since I was 25, I only talked in Terrace House so I came back and thought this was the only way Meeting people for me. "


The other new resident, Shohei Uemura. He replaces one of the show's more controversial characters, rising chef Yuudai Arai, and is a musician. "During the production of my current album, I found that most of my work is based on fictional stories that I invented in my head," he says. "I thought I would like to experience real, heartfelt love in Terrace House and translate my true experiences into music, and part of me yearns for something new and exciting."

This pavilion has not used much yet. Probably because it is very cold in Karuizawa.


The outdoor barbecue area looks more pedestrian.


Although it is mainly used as an ashtray.


And a place to empty empty beer crates.


The house The surroundings are really beautiful.


But you have to take care of the flying squirrels.
