The Ultra-Minimalist: A Man Who Has Just 150 Belongings
By Dorothy Tan, 23 Jun 2016
In recent years, minimalism has been a popular design trend that influenced how digital and physical products look—some people have even adopted it as a lifestyle by drastically reducing the number of things they own.
Global news community AJ+ recently shone the spotlight on the rise of minimalism in Japan, which is inspired by Zen philosophy—in the video about this subject, they featured Fumio Sasaki, a man who owns only 150 items, including three shirts, four pants and four pairs of socks.
The video also shows an interview with Naoki Numahata, who practices “sound minimalism” to reduce noise—he claims that his movements became more “graceful and pleasant” as a result.
For others, having fewer things is a practical move as it would reduce the risk of injury during earthquakes.
Would you practice this form of extreme minimalism in your life to achieve contentment?
Watch the video below.
