Finding accommodation in Tokyo is never easy and many people are often left with no choice but to take whatever’s on offer. Just like those professionals who spend up to £400 a month ($600) for a small cubicle called ‘geki-sema’ or coffin apartments.
These share-houses is the latest idea Japanese have come up with to fight Tokyo’s housing problem.
The apartments don’t have windows and are so small people can’t even stand up inside. They are located in one of Japan’s busiest districts, Shibuya, and were recently shown on Japanese national television.
