      The kitchen is right inside the front door. I expect there may be what we would call an outhouse for sanitary facilities.

      From the Airbnb advertisemnet: “We have a composting toilet available for use with the Japanese Forest House. It is located a few steps away from the front door within the forest. As of now there is no shower or hot water available. There is a wood stove for heating and the renewable energy powered kitchen is equipped with an electric tea pot and hot plate and cooking utensils. “

      @Beth – There is a kitchen. The l-shaped shelf in the fourth photo shows a sink, with faucets. There are pots above the wood stove, so I suspect that is used for cooking. I didn’t spot any sort of refrigeration, but one of the baskets below the l-shaped shelf appears to contain a very small cooler. What more could anyone ask?

      This is a beautiful house, no doubt about it. I feel calm and relaxed just looking at the photos, and I don’t even live there.

    Click on More info here. It says, “We have a composting toilet available for use with the Japanese Forest House. It is located a few steps away from the front door within the forest.

    This. . .THIS is exactly what I have been dreaming of since deciding I want to retire to a “manageable” home. All it needs is a basement so I can stay cool in the summer and store my canned veggies and, as Beth noted, a small kitchen off the back.

    Beautiful. I like the simplicity of the house. Would be nice if it had a bathroom though.

    If you look closely there is a very simple kitchen. What I’m curious about is how to keep things cool?

    I’ve looked this over many times and its just as beautiful as the first. This has to be as close to my ideal home as someone else can get. The materials, execution and setting are simply amazing.
