What Are Japaneses Houses Called?


There were essentially two different types of houses, in ancient Japan, which are the pit-dwelling house and the elevated house. When Japan's unique culture came into full bloom, around the eleventh century, members of the aristocracy built a distinctive style of house called shinden-zukuri, while the samurai built the shoin-zukuri. The houses of common people developed differently in different regions of the country that were adapted to local conditions.
