Japan – Traditional Houses

Japan

Traditional Japanese houses consist of a few typical things like special flooring, “walls/doors”, “tables” etc. Each of them have their own names, they are a bit complicated (for me) so I’ll mention only 2 of them that you can see in today’s picture. The typical mat on the floor is called tatami. Nice sliding doors made of wood and paper are called shōji or fusuma (they are not synonyms just a bit different kinds of “doors”).

I stayed overnight in this place you see today. And it’s definitely another great experience from Japan. A traditional Japanese house looks much more beautiful than a capsule hotel, but both are worth visiting! 🙂

  1. Japan has been a country of the agriculture.
    With “straw of rice ,” Japanese make a tatami mat.
    It is Japanese wisdom. 😀

    1. When I look at these houses, I always have the impression they’re made of paper and will fall down in a moment 😉 it’s just an impression, anyway, they are really beautiful! 🙂
