In Japanese culture, in its way of living, the house is the spaces for private life. The private life is as important as the public life, and the traditional house reflects this fact through specific functions and specific spaces. During the past century, the rapid development of the cities has put the traditional layout of the Japanese house face to face with the increasing density and the consequent rules for the development of the living areas. The result, for the contemporary house, is a mixture of "traditional spaces" and "spatial inventions" to keep the inside as comfortable, usable and welcoming as possible. The simplicity and the neatness of these houses, both in concept and details, is outstanding. yet, we have to understand their relation with the meaning of spatiality and public/private life in Japanese culture. It has to do with the role of the man on Earth, with his behaviors, with social and private life, and with the forces of the nature, that in Japan are often violent and adverse. In this culture and generally in the oriental cultures, the artificial construction and the space is modelled in harmony with the existing conditions. The most immediate meaning is that the artificial spaces takes inspiration and accompany the elements of the context, instead of declaring its substantial diversity
