$4 Million Tokyo House Tour w/ Japanese Home Building Cost

$4 Million Tokyo House Tour w/ Japanese Home Building Cost

have you guys ever wondered what a four million dollar house looks like in Tokyo well in this video I’m gonna take you guys inside of a brand-new modern Tokyo house and then break down the cost so we’ll be checking out this new Sethu Taku model house also known as a two-generation house so this is your Japanese take on a modern house it’s pretty common in Japan for the grandparents live with you and as you can see the two doors allow for more privacy and what’s pretty sweet is right here we have wheelchair access for grandma or grandpa when you enter a Japanese house you’ll notice the floor level is different at the entrance this is where you take off your shoes [Music] so on the first floor right next to the entrance this is where the grandparents live in this tatami room it has a table in the center for during the day and then at night you can move the table over to the side of the room and you can put your foot on down on the tatami mats if you’ve ever visited Japan and you’ve ever been to a yoke on this setup is very similar in fact a lot of modern houses don’t have Khatami rooms but older generations are just more comfortable to thali mats that’s why they offer this solution look at all these details so cool oh nice there’s a little display area now let’s check out the living room for all generations so this place is so big it almost feels like a restaurant one of the reasons why they made this place is so spacious is that it’s designed for two families so that’s why you have this big table behind me you have this huge kitchen right here and then you have that big living room over there to the right well maybe not in western centers but it’s pretty big here in Japan so just behind the tiny table you can see that there’s a desk over there and that dance is designed for the kids to study is a mom she’s in the kitchen or dad is in the kitchen cooking they can still watch over their kids while they’re studying and Grandma and Grandpa can also obviously help with their homework if need be this is the main kitchen in a traditional Japanese kitchen they usually don’t have dishwashers but in this kitchen they’ve built in a little dishwasher and they usually don’t have large stoves but they do have these fish grills in Japan many families cook a lot of fish and these fish grills are a time saver one of the things that I love about this traditional refrigerator is that it has two soft wheezing trays for your meats which I love because I just put beers in there and it just keeps my beer is super cold and then so it has this like cool electric right here and actually have an icemaker so you put your water in here and then just below you have your ice and in the bottom section this is mainly meant for vegetable it’s got a microwave stove and toaster that’s pretty convenient for your little appliances that you don’t use so often but then you once and all use it it just pulls out just like this this is the air conditioning unit in Japan houses that don’t have a central heating so what you’ll find is that each room will have its own dedicated air conditioning unit so this room may be hot but the next room if you haven’t turned on could be super cold but guys let me show you one of my favorite parts about this house [Music] I’m inside I’m outside yup it has an open balcony just outside of the living room I love how this is all connected it’s just one like free-flowing design this is a bathroom and changing room this is a towel rack cool it’s pretty nice about it you see these comment in the lodges and whatnot if you haven’t seen these before you basically you just hang the towels like so and it heats them up you can touch it it doesn’t get too hot but it will dry the towels even faster than if you just set it outside normally plus it acts as a little heater for the room this tub is pretty sleek but it’s not as sleek as electronic controls let me show you so what this tub does is it allows you to automatically fill the tub at a preset temperature so you can specifically set it to 36 degrees and the water will be that warm and then after using it a while you can just press the reheat button and it’ll reheat the water to the temperature you specified pretty freakin cool I mean hot it also has its own air conditioning with dryer feature so you can hang and dry your clothes inside of the bathroom dope and this bathtub even has a lid these lids are used for families because in Japan the families often share the bathtub water together and always one of my favorite parts of a Japanese home is the washing machine and dryer all you do is you put your clothes in put the detergent and the softener in and within a few hours everything is clean and dry you may think that this is just a closet but guess what it’s not it’s a mini office and it’s got grandma’s secret sewing room too now let’s move on to the second floor so [Music] since this house is designed for two families the second floor is generally made for the younger family and because it’s a younger family it’s a little bit more cozy than we saw downstairs and look this room is just so jazzy the kitchen size is designed just enough for four people [Music] cozy master bedroom with a walk-in closet connected to the hallway and check out this hidden floor on the top of the house and for sure it’s got solar panels pretty common these days all right so let’s break down the cost of building this house in Tokyo currently the average price of land in Tokyo and the central 23 wards is about 1.4 million yen per square meter which works out to be about 13 point $2,000 per square meter to build a house this size we’re gonna need about 264 square meters of land that gives us the cost of land 3.5 million dollars the house itself is about 230 square meters would cost about six hundred and sixty thousand dollars to build this house so the total cost comes out to be about 0.1 million dollars so what are you guys saying worth building a new house in Tokyo

  9. tompparaideri says:

    With 4m i would build a much nicer house than this outside of Tokyo and a summer cabin in Nikko and buy a Maybach S650 and a Lamborghini Aventador S and an AMG S65 Coupe and i would still have more than 1 000 000$ in my pocket.

  27. Caspdown says:

    Better off just buying a much nicer place in the countryside for less than $1 million, and flying your personal helicopter everywhere with a couple million leftover.

  28. HEAD McRae says:


    John 14:1-7 In my Father's house are MANY MANSIONS: if it were not so, I would have told you. I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU! (After Jesus died and rose again he sent the Holy Spirit Inside of us) And if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME AGAIN, (JESUS CAME BACK AND LIVES INSIDE US NOW) AND RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF; THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YOU MAY BE ALSO! (Because He Dwells In is) AND WHITHER I GO YOU KNOW, AND THE WAY YOU KNOW!:-) THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST DWELLS INSIDE US)…

    1 John 4:13 Hereby know we (Believers) THAT WE DWELL “IN” HIM, AND HE IN US, because HE HAS GIVEN US HIS SPIRIT.:-)

    John 14:10 Believest thou not that I AM IN THE FATHER AND THE FATHER IN ME? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but THE FATHER THAT DWELLS IN ME, he does the works.

  33. Daniel Alves says:

  34. Chenoa H. says:

    Even though it's a year late and I understand why it's so expensive. And I've been to Tokyo so I know apartments are small. Similar to housing prices in London. But I was so confused when he kept saying "huge: "big" and it was normal sized. 3 seater sofa 6 person dining table…

  35. ForFunTV says:

    In Europe you can buy a castle with 4 million

  36. TheRandoMan says:

  39. Red panda says:

    Ok I don’t feel poor anymore

  40. KWAZA The African Commander says:

  42. Eugene says:

  43. Tigreal Estes says:

    This shit is whack asf I’ll pass

  44. Bosch by bosch says:

  45. Regrettable Major says:

    Jesus fucking.. thats waaaay fucking expensive dude.

  46. Regrettable Major says:

    Whenever I think of japanese house I only remember nobita (doraemon). But now that I think about it, his house would be worth quite a lot. Also explains why I remember his mom usually lecturing him about the house loan and stuff.

  47. Toe Kneemah says:

    I love your videos so much!!!

  48. S C says:

    I love the mini-office and smart bath.

  49. Jordan S says:

    Okay regardless…majority of million dollar homes in any big city still exude luxury. This one does not.

  50. Joey Gatsby says:

    Is there a link or can you tell me where to get or see one of those fish grills? Or was it a custom grill

  51. James Owen says:

    Is this a permanent house?

  52. RAX IO says:

    Definitely not worth it. Lol 😂😂

  53. Don’t be a cunt says:

    Calm down guys this house was made in Tokyo the land prices are absolute shit

  54. Sawssan Flah says:

    In my country you can have castle for that price 😂😂

  55. Spark Play says:

    Who would pay 4 mil to have another family next to you. Fuck outa here lol

  56. Mohirjon Naimov says:

    I think it is 40 times expensive than it should be

  57. Valter Martins says:

    What markets do you trade?

  58. Transformers Megatron says:

    And he is excited for this 4million house. He is made for Tokyo

  59. Alex Hartline says:

    This dude sounds high af

  60. pmanlicious II says:

    In Indonesia, you just need $500k to get house like that

  61. Dustin Platt says:

    $11,000 a month for this house is so different than an $11,000 a month house in America.

  62. Silver Bear says:

    So its really a $660,000 home. the land is whats so expensive.

  63. Roberto Gamez says:

    That's a 100 000 dollars home in Mexico so expensive

  64. Hexag0n_ says:

    Man that place is clean

  65. Happy Green says:

    After spending over 4 Million Dollars for the house, I can see why the family would have to share the bath water. LOL

  66. DeltaDeathDogs 21 says:

    If it comes furnished than I'll think about it.

  67. Andrew Kassebaum says:

    That is gross.. why do Japanese share bath water or recycle it for a second bath?

  68. BenRangel says:

    reheating the bath water is something I think westerners could live with now that everyone is getting more environmentally conscious

  69. a998 says:

    Its a shame the building regulations limit the number floors residential developments could have.

    3.5 million would be acceptable if you could have 5 floors of 230 sqm (1,150 sqm).

  70. mosindesire says:

    I really enjoyed that hidden spot on the roof. That house is a little smaller then my house with a large yard and two car garage and paid less then $200k. I understand conserving water but how many times can you use the same bath water and still get clean? Maybe the dirtiest takes the last bath?

  71. zycane says:

    Stopped rather abrupt there xD

  72. Sandra Bullcock says:

    imagine the buyer working in that closet office thinking "4million…"

  73. Alien Aseel says:

    I can’t imagine using a used bathtub water, just the thought of it makes me cringe

  74. The Mariam says:

    Why is there so many offices and living areas but no bedrooms how are the people going to sleep ?

  75. Raze Slides says:

    It’s pretty small and very expensive where should people live when they just arrived in Japan besides hotel or apartments

  76. TheUsername217 says:

    Holy shit that is weak for a 4 mill home

  77. Poop Shit says:

    He looks like he knows a secret of yours that not even you know.

  78. ぱーりびーぶりぷり says:


  79. Serjohn says:

    who shares bath water? thatsounds so unhealthy

  80. Rivaldo Riyanto says:

    I cant believe this house is less than 300m2. Its so well designed, my house is larger than that but it feels so cramped in

  81. OnDay 7 says:

    that better be 4 million venezuala dollars cause holy nuts, is land expensive.
    i am now understanding why in anime every adult lives in an apartment…

  82. princepeterwolf says:

    "This space is SO big" l o l

  83. Queen Syddy says:

    4 million in Japan.. 300k in California. A Californian mansion would probably cost 12 million if it was in japan lol

  84. Kevin Buguecio says:

    For that money in Málaga, Spain you can easily buy a new mansion with large pool, the best materials and a nice land with perfect views to build that house

  85. S Wiseman says:

    That's crazy! If you have that kind of money, build a nice property in Ecuador or Panama with beach views and retire.

  86. Karl says:
