The charm of traditional Japanese room design — from sliding paper doors to tatami mats — has lasted for millennia and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
For many, rooms with this sort of decor hold feelings of nostalgia and comfort. Many residences and hotels in Japan have rooms with this decor that celebrates the country’s long and storied history. Just be sure to take your shoes off before you make yourself at home!
Seeing a young Shinobu Kocho (from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba) watch as her mother helps her older sister with her makeup in their beautiful family home is sure to ignite all sorts of feelings.
Do any of the illustrations below make you feel at home?
