Dancing Shoes

I saw through the door to one Japanese house that the owner had a large collection of fancy dancing shoes in her genkan (entrance way). In a western house, such a collection would almost certainly be stored in a bedroom rather than by the door (even if the owners usually took their shoes off at the door). However, in Japan, all shoes are stored by the door.

It must be much more convenient to store all shoes by the door!

Yes, but I it does takes up a lot of space.

I suspect you have too many shoes to keep them all by the door.

God Bless

lol, actually, yes I do. I usually just keep my winter boots at the door. And after I put on my boots, I leave my slippers at the door!
