Dogs deserve all the luxury in the world! If you too believe in this narrative, check out this beautifully crafted doghouse that is inspired by traditional Japanese architecture and comes for a cool $150,000. Yes, that’s right!
Inside the ‘Inudono’:
Introduced by Bunkaizai Kozo Keikaku, a company located in Osaka, Japan, the doghouse is unlike any other. It is handcrafted by carpenters and metal craftsmen by equipping the same techniques that are when working on shrines and temples.
The materials used include Japanese hinoki and keyaki cypress wood, granite for the base, and copper plates for the roof. The kennel measures 119.1 cm (approximately 47 inches) tall and 122.5 cm (48 inches) wide, while the interior opening is 41 cm (16 inches) tall and 39.4 cm (15 inches) wide.
Exclusive orders taking six to 12 months to complete:
“Inudono” is a combination of the Japanese words “inu,” meaning dog, and “dono,” meaning feudal lord. And to ensure that the kennel is luxurious enough, Bunkaizai Jozo Keikaku has estimated that each order will take between six to 12 months to complete.
Commenting on it, the marquee said, “This dog hall is produced by an active palace carpenter, an experienced sheet metal craftsman, and an engraver under the supervision of a repair engineer who has worked on many cultural property repairs. The design is based on the style of Zen Buddhism, which was an architectural style that was introduced along with Zen Buddhism during the Kamakura period.”
It further added, “The dog hall is carefully manufactured one by one by a shrine carpenter and a copper plate craftsman. While they are engaged in new construction and repair work for temples and shrines, they also build dog halls, so they can only build one building per year.”
Each luxury dog home starts at $150,000.
While the “Inudono” is for everyone interested in pampering their dogs in the most luxurious manner possible, The rather unique and expensive doghouse is priced at a whopping $150,000 and is expected to go on pre-order starting September 2022.
