In the article, “Tokyo’s Teeny- Tiny Homes” (Upfront, Hayashi, 2022 subscription required) the amount of college students in Japan choosing to live in a 95 square foot apartment is increasing that’s like less the space from a parking lot. There’s hardly any space for a kitchen, pieces of furniture, and barely enough space for a sleeping area. These tiny apartments known as the three tatami rooms rent starts at $340 raising to $630 a month. These apartments are placed near trendy areas to call attention including many young adults chose this space work for their way of living. It’s known in Japan to not have guest over since many citizens tend to work long hours leaving them little time to spend at home.

Would you like living in these tiny apartments?

In my opinion I wouldn’t be able to choose a small apartment the size of a parking lot. The reason why is I need a lot of space to get me around. I’m a person who collects a lot of items I would need room as well for all my items too. I would feel trapped if that was to be my home an as a home I need to feel comfortable for my liking.
