We conducted a written questionnaire survey focusing on people's feelings about Japanese-style rooms, with the objective of elucidating the future prospects of such rooms. Among younger respondents, we found a relationship between their feelings and the number of Japanese-style rooms, the presence of contiguous Japanese-style rooms, and the age of their current residence. Many young people who feel an attachment to Japanese-style rooms use them for special purposes such as seasonal events or as a parlor. Reasons cited for the necessity of Japanese-style rooms were that they are soothing, are an essential part of the Japanese identity, and allow users to assume comfortable postures. The most common reason given for why such rooms are unnecessary was that there is no disadvantage of not having a Japanese-style room. Advantages cited for such rooms matched the reasons given for their necessity. The most commonly cited disadvantage was the burden of maintaining such rooms.
