General Information | Practical Information

A Japanese retreat, inside your own home A traditional Japanese interior, often a tatami room, is known for the serene balance between the living space and its contents. All the elements and furniture have a specific purpose and spot within the room. Making a Japanese style room, better known as Washitsu, practical yet minimalistic by design. The characteristic minimalist approach transforms the Washitsu into a haven of peace and tranquility. A retreat from the hectic world we live in. Naturally it is often the setting for practicing artforms such as the Japanese tea ceremony.

The elements of a traditional Japanese Interior There are various set elements that belong to a traditional Japanese interior. First and foremost, the sliding doors and dividers known as Shoji. These iconic examples of Japanese architecture are known for their precise latticework, Kumiko, over sheets of rice paper or Washi. Allowing a softened light casting silhouettes to be seen from outside the room, adding a cozy ambiance.

A Washitsu often features a Tokonoma, which is a raised display for traditional arts such as Bonsai, Ikebana and Suiseki. A very important part in the Tokonoma is a pillar known as the Tokobashira, separating it from the elements next to it such as traditional cabinets and Chigaidana shelves.

The floors of a typical Japanese room are often fitted with traditional Tatami mats. We have a personal partner from Okayama prefecture in Japan who provides the Tatami mats for Yokoso interiors. They have been making Tatami since the Edo period, ensuring a high quality and authenticity.
