Home Tour Part 8

This is our washitsu, or Japanese-style room. Its distinguishing features include tatami flooring and sliding doors. In the past, most Japanese homes would be entirely made up of washitsu, but nowadays many Japanese homes only have one washitsu (like we do), with the remaining rooms being Western-style. These rooms are often used for entertaining guests at a low table, but ours primarily functions as a guest bedroom, complete with traditional futon bedding.
