Genkan with storage and adjacent bench. Functionally works well. Would be great to have this on both sides of the entryway. Also like the feel of the pebbles indoors.

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.
