Which Japanese houses are worth saving?
The Japanese house of the year was announced on Tuesday, with the winner of the Japanese house contest taking home the award for the best new house in Japan.
It was revealed that the new house at the centre of the award-winning “House of Beauty” video is located in Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market.
The video has received over 100 million views and has been viewed over 3.5 million times.
The house was designed by architect Kazuo Nishijima and features a courtyard with a garden and terrace.
It also features a small outdoor terrace and garden with a pond.
“This house is not only a stunning place to live, but also an excellent place to raise a family,” said Nishijimas partner, Kazuo Shimamoto, in a statement.
“We’re very grateful to all the members of the Tsukiji Fish Market and the Tsukikis’ owners for all the hard work they put in creating the perfect house for the Tsukimi family.”
Nishijima, a Tokyo-based architect, has been designing residential and commercial structures since the 1980s.
