Japanese Zen Van Dwelling in a Converted Micro Van

Right now I’d like to show you a little van that has been rehabbed into a micro motorhome perfect for stealth van dwelling with a Japanese zen style.

I can see it being used for stealthy traveling but it can also serve a variety of purposes like a space for meditation, writing poetry, or just about anything else you might be able to think of.

Take the complete tour below because I think you’ll enjoy it and it’s definitely different than a lot of van conversions that I’ve seen before. And there’s a video tour, too. Enjoy!

    I always admire the simplicity and clean lines of Japanese design and this is lovely also. I wouldn’t mind living in this for a cross-country tour, however, I was hoping a video would show how back door works and if there is a bathroom.

      Thanks Karen- I really like it too and have always been drawn to Japanese design and culture. I wish we could see a bit more too but oh well.

    I love zen serenity… especially in a small space. Many small houses are very cluttered. I am considering closing the cabinets away… not the room. I am thinking roll up instead of sliding sideways.

    Okay, PLEASE excuse my walk on the Dark Side, here, but I have to post this funny thought that instantly *popped* into my head when I saw this interior.

    Can you imagine the look of puzzlement when some sneak thief breaks into this van and finds THIS!?!? He’d probably back slowly away and high tail it outta there! LOL

    On the Light Side, a very sweet ride. 😀

    Amazing! I have been considering something similar.

    Wow, tiniest sink ever! What have you done for shower or toilet or fridge or stove or electrical? I assume you sleep on a mat on the floor. Impressive cabinetry, but I wished for more detail than watching a light turn on!
