Japan style…

Japanese homes speak to the soul, offer a contemplative environment to create & experience the world. Japan Style offers rare glimpses into 20 exquisite traditional homes in Japan. Photographs demonstrate how Japanese design achieves a timeless tranquility using simple natural elements.

Wood is the preferred building material. Shinto & Zen Buddhist roots have inculcated a deep respect for nature. The wabi-sabi ideal of rusticity & simplicity underpins Japanese interior design. These homes invite us to re-think the wisdom of our hurried modern lifestyle with a calling to return to a simpler, serene life.

The quintessential Japanese aesthetic is seen in a 100-year-old minka farmhouse, an old merchant’s machiya town-house in Kyoto, a sprawling country Samurai villa & in a modern sea-side cottage. Inspiring minimalism.
