Traditional Japanese houses are made of wood and supported by wooden poles. But today the Japanese house usually has a Western-style rooms with wood floors and often built with steel poles. Besides, more and more families in urban areas live in apartment buildings, a large steel reinforced concrete.
There are two major differences with the west house, the people do not wear shoes in the house and at least one room which tend to be designed in Japanese style, called tatami floors. People leave their shoes upon entering the house to keep floors clean. Genkan (玄关), which is the entrance, is a place to take off our shoes, put it down, and wear it again. After releasing the shoes, the Japanese people wearing house slippers.
So when enter the Genkan (玄関). We can see how the shape of the front view Japanese house traditional and modern big city, those in the city there may be no room for garden and parking area in front of the house but at few other cities such as the city of Higashi Hiroshima usually in front of the traditional Japanese houses there is a garden (niwa 庭) are quite extensive.
Some differences between the houses in Japan with a home in another country.
Front garden and home, genkan 玄关
Japanese-style gardens are usually located in the back and front of house area. Garden which features natural rock pool equipped 盆栽 bonsai, bamboo water fountains, and other bamboo crafts making traditional Japanese house more attractive. The front of the house or porch area of the Japanese are not usually regular and ordinary course, sometimes does not reflect a gate house, seemed not even look like a small stately and usually it goes directly there genkan (玄关) and toilet (トイレ), and the usual entrance in Japan there is only one. this is in contrast with other countries that view the home front of the house looks magnificent and there are a lot has an iron fence entrance, such as garage doors, main entrance, side entrance and rear entrance, etc.. 

Room / room (heya 部屋)
Layout of the dual function in the Japanese house one room could serve as a living room and dining room during the day, and serves as a bedroom at night, its usually not much furniture because cabinets are united with the structure of the building called fusuma ふすま Japanese futon mattress store where (布 団), clothing and others, so do not need to buy a wardrobe. All corner of Japanese rooms will be utilized maximal. In Japan's room is almost no bed because they were accustomed to hold a futon on tatami .
Yes, tatami is  a kind of thick  mats made ​​of straw, have been used in Japanese homes since about 600 years ago. A piece of tatami usually measures 1.91 x 0.95 meters. The size of the room / rooms are usually based on the number of tatami. Tatami floor is cool in summer and warm in winter, and still more fresh than many dive carpet damp in the winter months .. This is due under the tatami is no air vents from under the house and a place to set and ajust the air condition, where a variety of pipes such as running water pipes, gas pipes, toilets and drains etc.
Kitchen (daidokoro 台 所)
In the Japanese home kitchen can be said to be very narrow when compared with the kitchen at home in another country. One of the better Japanese kitchen is there to absorb air ventilation when cooking or frying at something that gives rise to smell bad. In few other places in the world, such as kitchen ventilation is usually not observed. Adequate air ventilation is obtained from the kitchen window, and consequently the food will smell out and disturb neighbors. Japanese houses even narrow kitchen space, there are air vents coming out, except in the apartment where the kitchen and bathrooms are in the same space.

Bathroom / Toilet

       Very impressed from the house of the Japanese and Japanese building is beauty, cleanliness, and sophistication of the toilet. Japanese toilet in the house is usually divided between a place to wash my face (senmenjo 洗面 所), bath (ofuro お 風呂), WC and urinal (トイレ). Japanese toilets are usually always dry and there is toilet paper, which is a very important need for the Japanese. They do not use water while in the toilet, toilet paper is used instead of water so that the toilet is always dry. The traditional Japanese house was at home at this time tolietnya were equipped with advanced technology. Shower to wash it instead of manually rotated as usual but with just a button. The options also vary, there is to wash the front, rear, there is not air but water spray to dry. There's even a squirt of perfume fragrances.
Most Japanese people think that the appearance of the home front is not a problem but the cleanliness and sophistication are the main toliet. What's a nice house that is ugly and dirty toilets. This may indicate either one of the Japanese people's personal characteristics when determining where it will stay, and at building a house, the toilet is always under-united.
