Old, New, and Abandoned? See what's up with Japanese Houses


Ore no house in the middle of the street

A few months ago, YouTube channel Life where I'm from, showed us what a modern Japanese home. While not anything extravagant, this new house looks to be similar to modern affordable housing in the United States, save for a few very clever features you would probably only see in Japan.

Now, Life where I'm from brings us a four videos about Japanese houses again and gives us a better idea of the housing situation is in Japan, which we rarely see in the various Japanese media. These videos showcase innovation and a fusion of modern with tradition, as well as some problems that need some good attention.

First of the videos is about the cost of a new house in Japan, second is about abandoned houses in Japan and why they get abandoned, the third is a tour of an old Japanese home that is more than a hundred years old, and last is a quick tour of a house exhibition center where prospective house buyers can take a look at some model homes.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
