Thin Buildings And Houses 

Thin buildings-in Japan, where real estate is prohibitively expensive, there are lots of them. You’ve probably seen one of these: quaintly slender buildings sandwiched between two large ones; sharp, pointed corner structures hugging every available space. Even apartments in which (we assume) tenants aren’t allowed to get too fat are not an uncommon sight.

So if you’re bemoaning the cramped, crowded flat you’re holed up in somewhere in Tokyo, just be thankful you don’t live or work inside one these claustrophobic structures.
