Could you live in a room this tiny?

Could you live in a room this tiny?

Not for the claustrophobic! 

Japan is known for it’s efficient, space-saving ideas like it’s ‘capsule hotels’ but this backpackers guesthouse takes the cake.

Captured by photographer, Won Kim, this hotel is based on a single floor of an office block and consists of a few narrow hallways and these tiny spaces for people to stay in. The intimate shots show how people utilise the limited space, some very organised and others with belongings strewn everywhere.

‘The sharply-defined space and its contents tell something about its occupant’s personality, and his or her ability to function in such a strange, enclosed environment’, Kim writes. ‘Some of the people in these images, whom I’ve shown surrounded by their possessions, stay at the facility for a relatively short time – For other residents, these tiny cubicles are essentially permanent homes.’

These are an interesting collection of images that, give not only a glimpse into people’s lives but also, into the secret world of small spaces in Japan.
