Extra Closet Space

Bedrooms in apartments usually have a closet for futon. They are big and spacious. There usually aren't clothes closets, especially in older apartments. People buy wardrobes that sit in the room. They are wooden or cloth cabinets. Some are just open racks. Others have cloth drapes around them.
These choices are from the catalog Big Sister, the high school graduate, received recently. These things are available throughout the year.

Here is the company's link. It takes awhile to link up:

Catalog for the Graduate in the House

This year we have a high school graduate in the house! Big Sister is graduating from high school in March! So that means she's getting a lot of catalogs.
This one has furniture for college students' first apartment or for those who want to remodel their rooms at home. I think it's safe to say that most college students in Japan live at home with their parents. That is, if their university of choice is in the same town. Papa and aunt lived at home and went to university. Actually, they never left home!

This bed system is a real space saver. That's a television underneath.
