Pocket Doors in a Tokyo Bedroom

Tokyo, Japan

I spent the last 10 days traveling in Japan — Tokyo and Kyoto — here's a peek at John's one bedroom apartment near the Daikanyama neighborhood of Tokyo. A recent transplant from New York, John's small bedroom is open to the rest of the apartment but can be closed off with a series of double-hung pocket doors...

The pocket doors were about half the width of a standard American door — making it much easier to hang the two doors side by side when they are hidden away. Though the doors aren't usually closed, it is a nice option to be able to separate the bedroom from the rest of the apartment.

Thanks, John!
