Genkan. Favorite because of wide entry transition area to avoid bottle-neck, as well as enticing additional entries to other parts of the house.

日本家屋 土間. Traditional genkan - outside-inside interface

The change in height from the genkan, stepping up and into the house is of particular cultural significance. Just about every genkan will have a shoe closet, called a “getabako” in Japanese Another feature of the genkan is its practical use as an ‘airlock’, separating the heated inside rooms from the colder (often unheated) front entrance.
