The Japanese walls are totally empty or decorated only with some stickers depicting cherry blossoms.
The objects of common use in the house are placed inside the closet cabins closed by doors totally identical to the sliding walls from which they become indistinguishable. The very few furniture in the house is only allowed if low and made of natural materials (such as bamboo). The sofa, armchairs and chairs do not exist and are replaced by tatami mats and a mat produced with rice Wicks tied together, that also makes the bed support the futon, which is a soft mattress padded with cotton flakes (which is rolled up in the morning and placed in the walk-in closet).

Alternatively, you can quell your soul by meditating with the help of a Zen garden, a small tray containing stones and sand with which to form drawings.
