[With reference to 2 videos appended below at the end of this post]
This girl here lives in a SUPER TINY 8m2 apartment in Tokyo, Japan. Her name is Emma and she’s a YouTuber from Australia, living in Tokyo.
The average 4-room flat in Singapore is around 90m2 in size. So technically, our home is more than ten times the size of hers! #insane
However, after watching the videos (which we’ve embedded below for your viewing), there’s a part of us that envied her. Well, this 8m2 apartment would definitely work out if the wife lives alone in Tokyo; and a bit of a squeeze for two, but there’s just something magical about living in a small space and making it work.
If you’d want to discuss minimalism, Emma is definitely a minimalist – without even quoting a word of ‘minimalism’ in the first video below.
The simplicity of her life is astounding.
- She has so little to clean.
- She gets to live in Japan (hello, our dream).
- If she ever needs to move, she can pack up in a day.
- HOW COOL IS HER TOILET.
Of course, there are cons to living in a small space, i.e. you can’t entertain much, you are limited to whatever activities that the space allows for, and you likely can’t own a pet. But this has definitely intrigued us.
Would you ever live in a space like that, even if it’s for a few months? 🙂
