You will be pleased to take a tour of this eight-square-meter tiny house in Tokyo where an Australian woman Emma lives. Don’t go at the size, because the clever design approach makes it a fully-functional and comfortable home, where she is spending beautiful moments of her life.
Tokyo is a highly populated city, so space limitations are certain. This tiny house has a narrow space, but the height of micro-apartment adds a feeling of spaciousness inside. Kitchen, office space, living area, and a bathroom are incorporated in the lower floor, while a cozy sleeping loft is upstairs.
There is a shortage of windows, but a small balcony alongside a small Japanese chair lets her experience outdoors while working or gazing the neighborhood. She has included a lot of flower pots in her tiny apartment to add some living sensation in the space. The bathroom also has interesting design as the toilet seat appears only after she slides the sink.
The Japanese mini house comes fully-furnished in regional flavor, so it is a bit challenging for her to assume it as one her own. Moreover, she includes only those things in the tiny home that are essential for day-to-day living.
Although the tiny house has small dimensions, it keeps her creative and allows her to live in a self-maintained space. Emma pays ¥69,000 (US$600) per month as rent for this apartment.
