Japanese houses often use fittings made of wood and paper. The partition of the room called fusuma is used by sliding it left and right. However, it does not block the sound. It symbolizes the Japanese way of thinking about privacy.

In addition, shoji screens are used for squeezing by the window. The material, Japanese paper, regulates humidity and allows light to pass through. Since the shoji is paper, it is easy to tear, but it is replaced at regular intervals.
