Japanese Traditional Homes

Filed under: Ladies interests — Me2 @ 11:30 am

I can't stop Admiring the japanese & their culture,, as they're so polite, so neat, so tidy & so simple even when they're so complecated.. I admire their proud of their traditions & culture.
This's a quick look inside their beautiful traditional homes

this's a traditional simple japanese house

This's the traditional floor mat (tatami)

this's the (tokonoma) it's a place in the wall where they can put some stuff like books or flowers or anything else for decorating

this's (kakejiku) they put it on walls

the (ikebana) art in arranging flowers

sliding doors of the rooms (fusuma)

they use (shoji) instead of curtains

a japanese kitchen nowadays contains:
gas grill, rice grill, microwave, oven & fridge

The bed called (futon) it's so simple & put on tatami floor then in the morning they put it in a nook (oshiire)

so the room can turn into dining room or guest room in the morning

for heat they use that tsble with a heater called (Kotatsu)

  1. I love traditional Japanese homes too, especially the simplicity. I would love to have a futon on the floor, but my husband is attached to the bed!
