Unlike the others, Japanese people don’t really fill their homes with furniture, they like minimalism and the only thing that they have on their floor is a tatami. If you're wondering what a tatami is, let us clear it for you. It is a traditional mat which is made of straw, but it is also a unit of measurement for the area. Fun fact: and average Japanese Room can fit 6 tatami mats. Some other furniture that they add is a wooden table with cushions for sitting, a dresser, and several futons and some cotton mats which they fold and store in the other closet in the day time. These closet match the walls so that doesn’t distract the attention. The whole reason for the empty space is to clean efficiently and easily.

Japanese homes have no walls, instead, they have sliding doors to divide the room, which is known as fusuma. It is made of bamboo bars and rice paper. These light sliding doors can be easily moved or taken off which makes it easier to change the layout of the house. They follow a rule, that a bath and a toilet are placed in different rooms and not together and even the bathroom takes up 2 rooms. The one includes the sink and a shower and the other has the traditional Japanese bath, Ofuro. The procedure that they follow is, to clean the dirt in the shower and then relax in the hot water in the Ofuro.
