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.
