Let me tell you about my experiences in Japan… many bugs! My present apartment and previous one were next to a river in a country side area. I see bugs so much that I have gotten a little better. For example, I kill the spiders in my apartment. Even huge ones. But just a little bit ago, I saw the hugest centipede of my life in my bathroom. And it was bright red and ran quickly… but I killed it with lots of poison spray. At my new apartment, I see about 5 spiders a day. At my company, I can count around a hundred spiders I bet.. not joking either. Living alone is really nice… except for when I find a bug or spider.
