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.

This is a slim treehouse built by a carpenter with a passion for treehouses in Mount Fuji, Japan.

This is an area that’s popular for vacations so rent and housing is normally very expensive here which makes the treehouse even better, right?

Yuichi Takeuchi, the builder, created it for a friend who wanted to have a second home in Fujiyoshida, which is near Mount Fuji.

Fortunately, he was able to arrange a 10 year lease on this land to build the wonderful treehouse you’re about to see. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

Check out this 3-story 624 sq. ft. house in Japan. The architects, Takahashi Maki and Associates, call it the “White Hut and Tilia Japanica”.

Set in a older residential community this small house sits much higher than it’s neighbors.

The large windows of the home give the owner views of the surrounding area.

Heading inside the house you would find on the ground floor the bedroom with space for a small desk.

On the second floor you will find the kitchen, dining and living area.

The top level would be my favorite. Along not pictured here that is where you would find a large and luxurious bathroom.

Would this type of small house design work for you?

This tiny house on wheels in Japan is designed and built by Tree Heads & Co. to be used as a mobile shop that sells coffee, soft drinks, and snacks.

It’s situated near a bus stop so people getting off can enjoy coffee, drinks, and snacks while enjoying wonderful mountain views.

The shingle siding is made from cypress. And the little cabin on wheels has a living green roof which will soon have flowers. It’s called the Green Roof Tiny Shop.
