There’s no question that Japanese design is at the top of its class; but the nation may have outdone itself with Caravan Tokyo, a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience at the heart of the nation’s capital city. Custom-built by local craftspeople, the clean, elegant wooden interior is not exactly what one might expect from a trailer. Despite its isolation and compact layout, it provides heat, air conditioning, plumbing, Internet, and more for all the comforts of a hotel room minus the hustle and bustle; and with a prime location in the upscale neighborhood of Omotesando, you’re still just minutes away from some of the best food and fashion around town. Caravan Tokyo allows visitors to escape the busy city in a monument to good design; from incredible space efficiency to its smart minimal aesthetic, the camper gives non-natives a genuine look at what makes Japan unique. Book your stay for anywhere from two days to two months on airbnb.

Lizzie

​Lizzie Wright is an aspiring artist and designer with a passion for the written word. While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
