Japanese Tiny Home on Wheels: Video Tour

It’s just a fact that Japanese design is almost always better suited for tiny spaces than our “bigger is better” American style and that couldn’t be more true in this Japanese Tiny Home on Wheels!


Living Big in a Tiny House took a tour of the home with it’s now-owners who purchased it from a brilliant designer. The itty bitty home can easily fit in a parking space and yet includes a kitchen, sleeping space and seating for up to six people. All in all, it weighs no more than 600 kgs (around 1,200 lbs).

Be sure to watch the whole video tour and see the space transform before your eyes.

    I have always admired the Japanese for there ability to live simple, and I agree with the opening comment on the American Houses being bigger and much more than what the typical Japanese house would consist of.. Regrettably this house does not have the facilities of a Japanese house though, as their bathroom facilities most often contain a Ofuro bath tub, or soaking tube, and I fined that a most agreeable attribute to a Japanese House and or life style, but unfortunate that because of this houses size cannot be able to include one… As well as some type of toilet… None the less this is a rare view of a Japanese camper, or their take or version on the tiny house…

      true Zachary, but lacking one’s own ‘ofuro’, there are dedicated bath houses (sentō) all over … and there is no hesitation or discomfort related to bathing with others of the same gender … one showers, shampoos, rinses and then enters the great hot pool for a soak … their vehicle is a 660cc, or ‘k’ class, car (yellow license plate) … hauling the water necessary for a typical tub soak would be difficult! saw a video on this … mother and daughter were surprisingly comfortable and lucid with Eng. too! m(_ _)m

        I was not meaning to imply that it was a necessity only a luxury to which I share the same passion for as the Japanese… Nothing more …!

    What a lovely home, and lovely ladies in it! Bryce is always a pleasure to watch. Glad he located this house so far away.
    500kg? Never seen before! You could pull that with a small motorcycle/scooter. And yet, so functional, and so beautiful and clever in design. 30k USD is a lot for the size but not for the intricate workmanship.
    Personally I’d need a bath, regardless of hot springs. But the kitchen indeed is sufficient, given the way the Japanese cook and eat.
    The extendable roof is awe-inspiring, and the many ways the designer reduced weight. I’d want him build me sth.!

    Is the essence of a artistic/rational pace the light and landscape that you can admire all “round”, and small kitchen-sink alcove with window, is invaluable element that could not miss.

    Was this TH used as a Japanese guest house? Looks simple yet oriented! Well done!
