Breathtakingly Beautiful Japanese Tiny House on Wheels


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.

  1. I really love the idea and concept of Japanese house it's really impressive how they make those foldable furnitures how they conserve their spaces in their houses…😍😍😍
    If I'm would ever build my own house I think I'll make that kind of concept I really really love it ❤❤❤

  2. Wait. What!!! How are these Japanese women speaking English fluently. Most Japanese people have terrible pronounciation.

  4. I wondered how they didn't overload the weight limit with all that beautiful wood. I'm glad they explained about the cotton padding, but I wonder if a lot of the interior structures are less than 3/4" thick where possible? Cabinet doors and such?

  5. more than this tiny house these two ladies influence us how cool they are so sober and seems a lot more talented…

  6. Why built a tiny house in the middle of this grand open location? It looks like there is plenty of room to expand out a few feet.

  7. If you have been waiting for the right time to make an investment in Gold and Silver, this could be it. In times of economic uncertainty, investors tend to purchase Precious Metals as a store of value and hedge against the volatility in the markets. Now may be a good time to act. 1508 gold

  9. What a bunch of impractical nonsense. I'm no hoarder, but honestly the tiny house trend will never be even close to mainstream because people want space for families and the things they need to run their lives. 2 old ladies pooping in the woods on permanent vacation isnt a family of four with jobs and kids and an actual schedule to keep and needs to fulfill. Only childless moron millenials who have been gaslit into submission by the completely fake climate change crowd like this garbage. Go rent a closet loser, and dont have kids either!

  10. When I see such people like in this beautiful video I start thinking that things may get better on our planet . Thanks for being.

  11. This video take a too much of time. Tiny house with lengthy explanation.. But I like tiny house and i want to live this type of tiny🏡 house😍😍

  12. ENTIRELY TOO SMALL! NOT Practical at all for most people. The fire place would burn you outta the tiny room! It is nice, but not enough room.

  13. People who ask if you can pull the trailer with your vehicle need to look at most All vehicles until the 50's. It has to do with rearend gearing and transmissions, not engines.

  14. Awesome! Can't get any more "natural" than this! Thanks for sharing~ really enjoy traveling with you around the world with these amazing innovative Tiny Homes.

  15. I love seeing older people in the tiny home movement, showing that it's not just for really young folks, or those with small children, but that anyone of any age (and in nearly any location!) can enjoy having a tiny home.

  16. I LOVE IT😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 except it's not as cozy as it could be. Memory foam….maybe some feather body pillows. A couple mattresses?? I would be hurtin for certain with just a sleeping bag🤪

  17. This tiny house is good to use when you are traveling around to see the country. You will save a ton on hotel fees.

  18. You look so tall compared to other people, in pretty much all your videos… but I'm 6'4" as well 😀 😀 😀

  19. The First and only tiny house that is also following minimalism. Mostly hoarding stuff is a western habit. Very rarely did eastern people hoard, they are now though. But nice to see this level of minimalism

  20. As organized, practical, and clean as the culture is, if anyone can make portable tiny house living work well, it's the Japanese.

  21. This would be even better if adjustments could make a pontoon frame for waterway. I know, sounds different. At England, persons live in houseboats to save financially. Very nice.

  22. Wow 😮 I loved this tiny house 🏡 Japanese is really good architecture Excellent in making tiny house And great technical ,organic it’s great,could you please inform me , where can I contact,thanks for sharing your great information ℹ god bless and peace

  23. Small is small but this is tiny. I would hate to have to keep assembling and disassembling all the time. It would become tiresome and a chore. Good for some.

  24. Man, they ain't got nothing in there. I have one closet packed with more crap than that whole place. I've got fricka-frack. Artists are not very simple but try to be.

  25. Am I the only one who’s like… it’s a cedar box… so is a coffin… probably cheaper and just as nice to buy a cedar coffin.

  26. HOW IS IT THESE TWO WOMEN ARE SO FLUENT IN ENGLISH. THEY DONT EVEN HAVE A JAPANESE ACCENT WHEN SPEAKING ENGLISH. SUGOI!

  27. Loving this discovery. So liberating. And Japan is a pretty secure (safe) country to live in such a house. Blessings.

  28. Can somebody say, "STUPID"?!!😊
    All these IDIOTS paid $75,000 and more for a lame tiny house. When they could of bought brand new RV's for $25,000.

  29. Its very pretty and functional. It kind of reminds me of the little teardrop trailers, and their functionality.

  30. ずっと一緒で仲が拗れたら、どうなるのかな?
