Hey dude, I havdn't actually figured that out, but it makes complete sense (considering I am working at Toudai)! Cheers.
I'll be on the keio line for about 6-10 minutes - my work stop is komaba toudaimae and my girlfriend's is past choufu, at minami osawa. After April, I'll be going to hongo campus, near Ueno much more frequently, so I will be in the nut-to-butt commute no doubt. However, as I will be at uni working I think the hours might be a little flexible... we'll see!
We're looking for a 1LDK in meidaimae. Starbucks, dotour and so on sound good :) what supermarket options are there around there? Thanks for the info!
