Average Japanese House – Inside the Home of a Typical Tokyo Family


Average Japanese House

We’re gonna go check out how typical family lives in Japan.

it’s a family of two with two kids I guess it’s like you’re like kind of standard family fact I’m getting to the age where a lot of my friends have families so why not go check out their house.

Have a little barbecue I brought some beer I brought some corn brought some chips for the kids it’s kind of like Cheetos all right let’s check out what’s inside, this is my friend’s wife Haruka a mom of two kids  and this is my good friend..

Yo hey he’s a surfer and a skater and his bones are always broken but today he’s all healed up and his son yoga you might be surprised that it looks completely new on the inside but that’s because it was renovated before they lived in.  Their house has two storeys with an attic and the basement and where I’m hula-hooping is a living room you don’t see a lot of these basement areas and houses in Japan especially in like the middle of Tokyo.

We are now there’s actually the size of like some people’s apartment in Tokyo this is great can you show us around in a Japanese house you don’t have a lot of space in fact this place has a lot of space but one thing that I really like is this check this out Wow cool this is Haruka’s workspace as a graphic designer.

I love Japanese and how efficient they are with their storage systems so this is like your typical Japanese kitchen I’m gonna show you what’s around your sink here’s my big gun stove here and it has one two three stoves Japanese kitchens usually come with this type of grill it’s small because it’s specifically made for fish since grilled fish is served quite often.

Japanese home cooking usually every household has at least one rice cooker a microwave and an oven toaster then they need to they own it oh I totally forgot to introduce you to the cutest one hi Jen he’s such a cutie   

standard toilet here in Japan it’s very like very common to have the toilet and then you kind of like the wash lit but once you flush and the water comes out and even actually like wash your hands water that refused to wash your hands I’ve say fulfills at 20 which is like pretty ingenious if you ask me like it saves a lot of water instead of flushing in and using the sink and then just here and you’d have your day it has all of the washing features you can adjust like the strength then the heat and all that stuff and then you can also warm the see pretty cool if you ask me this behind me is the washer and dryer set so much up in these houses have dryer and the washer all in one but in this case you have washer at the bottom and you have two dryer at the top having a door intercom system is very common in Japan so you can see who’s at the door look at yo hey it’s cool studio he turned this storage room into his own secret room so awesome now let’s check out the second floor it’s actually not really polite to look around people’s bedrooms in Japan but yo hey is super chill and was kind enough to show us around it’s big this is what the use of the guest room this is your like standard it’s itami mat very very traditional Japanese [Music] dude we’re all the way to the top

I’m sweating so much it’s so big up here I’m hot it’s like a sauna look you can just like actually use this as a sauna and sit up here and sweat all day and then you put towels and then you can do like hot yoga it’s so cool what’s cool about this place too is it it has this back patio area you can actually have a barbecue here not believe that there’s like no neighbors run it’s like one of the biggest things here in Tokyo like they get really really angry when you fire with the barbecue and they’re like window is right next to you but luckily there’s like no neighbors around this well there’s neighbors but they just don’t have any like open windows so when I showed you earlier is that they actually have you know the washer dryer but a lot of times they don’t use it and so they have like these hanger areas and look they even have a pool now let’s just enjoy the barbecue looking so what’s your favorite place about your house at my studio we just finished the corn thinking I look so good that kind of like rounds up the whole tour this is just like life in Japan this is how we this hang once in a while I hope you guys liked it if you liked this video hit that like button if you have any questions or comments about this place or boat they have a common in the comment section below and like always if you want to subscribe subscribe and we’ll see you in the next video see you guys soon
