  • Across the world, Japan is famous for its down-sized architecture.

  • So, what happens when Japanese design meets the tiny house movement?

  • Today, I've traveled to Kumano, Japan to find out.

  • Hi Rumi!

  • Hi Bryce, welcome to our home.

  • [Bryce] Thank you

  • [Bryce] Hey Katrina, how are you?

  • Good! It's nice to meet you

  • I have to say, this is quite possibly one of the tiniest tiny houses I have visited so far.

  • and it makes sence being here in Japan, doesn't it?

  • So what's this actually made from?

  • What's the material on the outside, because this wood looks beautiful.

  • [Rumi] Since I didn't make this one, don't quote me on this one, but

  • I believe its locally grown cedar.

  • [Bryce] oh, gorgeous.

  • [Rumi] aged by the craftsman who built this.

  • [Bryce] And the roofing material actually looks really unusual as well.

  • It's not so often that I can just reach up and touch the roof of a home.

  • but, yeah, this looks really unusual, what is this?

  • [Rumi] uh, Tagami, who built this one, I remember him using...

  • [Rumi] This is, uh, made for truck.

  • Like a cargo truck, to cover material

  • [Katrina] so it's very waterproof.

  • [Rumi] yeah, durable

  • [Bryce] That actually makes perfect sense, but I've never seen that done before.

  • That's such a clever idea.

  • I love how the roofs are separated apart in two sections as well

  • Does that actually fall down when you travel?

  • it does

  • oh how clever

  • [Bryce] Thank you very much.

  • And this is unusual; is this actually a chimney?

  • It is. Uh, he custom built a fireplace into this so we can climb up top and open that up and can have a nice fire inside when we get in.

  • And I see that this is on a single axle as well, which is quite surprising, because you don't often see single axle tiny houses.

  • How much does this one actually weigh?

  • Well, when you come around here you can see the side. In Japan, it's the maximum weigh is 500 Kg.

  • So with additional, maybe some items in the tiny house, probably roughly around 600 kilograms.

  • So very, very light weight.

  • And that container there, is that where the gray water's going?

  • Mmm, hmm. This one is attaced the the kitchen right there, where the drain goes to the kitchen.

  • Right there, see, where the drain goes straight in.

  • So there's a fresh water supply on board as well, is there?

  • Underneath this bench here, is a 20 liter water pan, and you open this one up and you just put, uh, water.

  • Notice these white windows?

  • Oh, yeah. The windows are lovely.

  • The shelves are strategically placed to really extend the bringing outside.

  • And if you are inside you really feel it. It feels like everything is really an extension.

  • It's really actually wonderful how the builder has done that.

  • You can see all of these shapes and lines on the outside that have been continued, and then mirrored on the inside.

  • And it forms this wonderful kind of dynamic, doesn't it?

  • Yeah. It's beautiful, isn't it?

  • And is there actually more storage built into this part?

  • Yes, there actually is.
