The Japanese always have an association with minimalism. Perhaps it stems from the Buddhist principle of simplicity, which they believe gives a person grace and naturalness. More recently, there is the Konmari Method of doing away with objects that do not spark joy.

Whatever the reason, it is just extremely satisfying to see a modern-Zen, Japanese interior that is stripped of any excess ornamentation, especially in this hectic, pre-holiday period. Feast your eyes on these:
