Odd-shaped Houses Get Cold Reception in Japan

Posted on May 6, 2012

Don’t like to live in a usual house? Japan has just the answer for you!

Real estate agencies in Japan are offering unique odd-shaped homes for adventurous individuals.

They say that these odd properties — known as “kawatta bukken” in Japanese — were designed to meet the demands of people who want to live in modern abodes, or just something different.

The different properties available include an egg-shaped house, which is located in Tokyo. An advertisement states that it is “from another dimension.”

Want others to see you as a tough guy? You can rent this house, located in Nagano Prefecture, which is advertised as the house of a James Bond villain.

Although the houses are unique, the reception from the market is cold, to say the least.

“It’s [the egg-shaped house] been with us for around a week, but so far we’ve had no interest,” said Mr. Takeda of B-Mania, one of the real estate agencies handling these kawatta bukken.
