A bedroom, a room for children, a lavatory, and a bathroom are allocated on the 1st floor, while a living room, a dining room, and a kitchen are gathered on the 2nd floor. Large windows of the dining room and the living room allow a clear view to the north side of the lot. The 3rd floor houses a guest room in a traditional Japanese style, which can be also used as a bedroom or a living room.
