japan is full on tiny or narrow buildings due to the housing crisis and i love spotting them and taking their picture ūüôā in case you too admire miniature houses out of an urban, contemporary fairy tale,¬†click here for many itsy bitsy pictures!

in case you are walking around¬†in shibuya, tokyo, you may come across this toy sized show room. it looks more like a glass box than anything else but i love the pocket format as well as the white cubic shelves that line one wall especially since they look just like one of the possibilities of a bookshelf i had in mind for my own place. but, don’t get your plastic out in a hurry hoping to get your hands on their cute kitchenware: the tiny cube is just for show not for sale. visit their online store for purchases!

and last, but not least, a wonderful little width-challanged house, also in japan. made by¬†fujiwara muro architects, it looks a lot like the place i could move into in case i’d go live in tokyo for a while. it’s full of light and seemingly¬†spacious¬†enough for two. do you like it?

who would think there are so many dwarfish buildings in the world? haha! i love them!
