MIDDLE BEDROOM


     
 

THIS IS THE LARGEST OF THE BEDROOMS. AT TIMES IT ACCOMODATED TWO, SINGLE BEDS WHEREAS NOW, IT CONTAINS ONE OVERSIZED, KING-SIZED BED, MOST SUITABLE FOR THOSE WHO DISLIKE SLEEPING ALONE AND, AT THE SAME TIME, FEEL THE NEED FOR ADDITIONAL SPACE IN WHICH TO ROLL AROUND A BIT. THERE IS A SEATING AREA CONSISTING OF AN OVER-STUFFED SIDE CHAIR, TWO ARMCHAIRS, A LOW COFFEE TABLE AND A COMFORTABLE SOFA, WHOSE AGE IT MAY BE INSENSITIVE TO ASK. FOR AN INTIMATE FAMILY GATHERING THERE WOULD BE NO NEED FOR ALL TO FILE DOWN TO THE SOMEWHAT DISTANT FAMILY ROOM ON THE FIRST FLOOR. IN THIS ROOM, YOUR PRESENCE IN A HOUSECOAT OR YUKATA AND SLIPPERS WOULD BE PERFECTLY IN ORDER. THIS WAS THE SETTING OF MANY A LIVELY FAMILY DISCUSSION. IN THE SUMMER, ON MOONLIT NIGHTS, THE GROUP WOULD MOVE OUT TO THE VERANDA. ON SOME NIGHTS, ESPECIALLY IN THE TIME OF O-BON, YOU COULD BE LUCKY AND ENJOY THE SPECTACLE OF FIREFLIES IN THE GARDEN. BEFORE THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE BUILDING NEXT DOOR, THIS WAS STILL A PRIVATE PLACE IN WHICH TO GATHER. NO MIND, WE LIVE IN A VERY PLEASANT AREA AND OUR NEIGHBORS ARE POLITE AND CONSIDERATE. AFTERALL, WE DO LIVE IN A CITY AND NOT OUT IN THE COUTRYSIDE.
