Average Japanese House - Inside the Home of a Typical Tokyo Family

Published on Aug 28, 2017 4,734,764 views

This is an inside look of a typical Japanese family's house in Tokyo Japan. This is a very common home in Tokyo. Unlike many people who rent Tokyo Apartments, this is a rented Tokyo House. The design of the Tokyo Home is very similar to other Japan homes except maybe the basement and attic.

  • xaph212
    xaph212 1 month ago Don't worry, This isn't "Average" nor "Typical" in Japan, those guys are upper class or/and rich people in Japan. When I was kid, my house infested with cockroach because my mom is completely utter trash which make a food every 3 days and I ate for like 4~5 days, She hate dishes, so after food became inedible,  It rotted. Also she has been abusive to her children, You know what? She didn't want hit me with her bare hands because hit someone with bare hands hurt their hands, So she used sticks for beat me. AAAAnd my farther was smart as Jerry Smith in Rick and Morty, he was utter useless but he wasn't just useless because He often got beaten by my mother, then he had beat someone else, which was usually his children. It was just my childhood, but I still hear children's screaming and their mother's abusive yelling from neighbors.

He asked if he had developed psychopathy, which is a medical term. “Psycho” is an insult, but he did not use that term. The commenter is just curious about this guy and how his life has turned out, that’s all. I didn’t see anything insulting at all in his comment, and English is my FIRST language.
