On Japanese net forum 2ch, many commenters said that they would go crazy living in a house like this or simply said this was “unbelievable.”

“You couldn’t gain weight living here,” wrote one 2ch commenter. “Can you get a sixty-inch TV in there?” asked another.

Most houses, even in crowded Tokyo and Osaka, are not this razor thin. Some houses are even quite large and have beautiful gardens.

All this could be yours for a mere 42.8 million yen (US$348,000). The price tag is largely due to location: This house is an under-ten-minute walk to two train stations.
