Only one of the 107-square-foot rooms will be available as part of a marketing gimmick for the Swedish furniture giant, and it’s located in Tokyo’s nightlife-intensive Shinjuku district.

The apartment, fully furnished with company furniture, will be rented from December 15, 2021 to January 15, 2023.

The company’s website claims that the key to the tiny apartment lies in optimizing “vertical space” to “open up the possibilities of a small room.”

To advertise the Tiny Home campaign, Ikea created a mascot — a shark broker named Blåhaj who “just loves small rooms.”

The shopkeeper even made a series of small videos featuring Blåhaj’s quest to advertise the tiny apartment.

The mascot can be seen in Ikea stores in Shibuya, Harajuku or Shinjuku and will showcase the best retail items for small urban spaces to shoppers until December 3.

Small apartments are incredibly popular with tenants in their twenties and thirties in Japan.

A real estate company in the country called Spilytus operates the Ququri Line of apartments that cover just 49.94 square feet.

By February 2020, most of the 1,200 homes had been rented out, SoraNews24 reports, and the popularity does not appear to be declining.

Tokyo is the most populous prefecture in Japan, with a population density of 6,158 persons per square kilometer according to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
