  1. some of the house were in Japan, if i'm not missed, so, it's kind of rational to have such a thin house where property prices are rocketing.
    The explanation about the interior in pic #13 is really helpfull, i can't imagine of having personal spaces all in just round 2m wide. But at pic #10, i'm curious of why should they spent spaces for balconies, while the room inside is just too thin. I wish there's more picture of its interior.

  2. It looks like the balconies in photo #10 overhang the footpath, so they wouldn't take away from the internal space in the building.
    Quite a few old buildings have similar balconies, very often in shopping areas where it forms an awning for the footpath below.
