Will Miss #3 - my landlord
My husband and I hit the jackpot apartment-wise when we moved to Japan. Our landlord and his wife live next door and are unfailingly polite, helpful, and do their best to accommodate our needs whenever we have a change or repair. They also respect our privacy meticulously. He speaks English quite well which has put all of our negotiations for rent contract renewal on our terms linguistically rather than his. We've lived in the same place for 20 years in large part because our landlord is so great.
I will miss having such a kind, helpful and supportive landlord.
