The World's Most Extraordinary Homes

Series 2 Episode 3: Japan

Piers Taylor and Caroline Quentin travel to Japan, a country who combines innovation with traditional design. With land at a premium here, small is definitely beautiful. House One is in Izura, on the coast, two hours east of Tokyo. The owner Hiroshi, a fisherman, lost everything in the earthquake of 2011. His new family home, high on a hillside, is nothing like a fisherman's hut.
