Japanese people are known for their simplicity. Although its roots are partially understood, they have no need for an abundance of objects. They do not need dozens of objects flying at them during an earthquake, so they minimalize. The important psychological idea here is the less time and money you waste on accumulating lots of unnecessary junk, the more order there will be in your home and your thoughts.
Take an inside the home of an ordinary Japanese family and observe how they live. This is true minimalism.
Some Japanese homes the people prefer not to have a bed. They sleep on a simple mattress.
Shampoo and other toiletries are always hidden on ledges.
Only items of clothing that are worn regularly hang in their wardrobe.
Only a table and chair may be in their bedroom.
Sometimes, they don’t even have a chair!
What is in a minimalist refrigerator? Not much.
Pots and pans are also few.
Each item has a need.
They keep the kitchen in good order.
The few things you do find in the house are really quite attractive.
Nothing will distract you from work in the study.
No luxurious light fittings.
The rooms feel lighter and airier.
There’s more room to live.
This well-organized home means a well-organized mind.
