Taking the stairs can sometimes feel like a chore. But that's nothing for this Japanese couple, who navigate their four-story home by ladder.

 

House T by Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects — also dubbed the "Ninja House" — has no interior walls, hardly any floor space, and only a few wooden ladders to maneuver between its levels.

 In 2013, the couple who commissioned the home told CNN they call it the Ninja because they need to be extremely nimble to move from one room to another.

Ladders lead to the other levels, which feature a kitchen, bedroom, dining area, and second living space. At the top, there's an attic and space for storage.

The final ladder leads up to a terrace on the roof. 

"We feel we're getting in better shape these days," said resident Hanae Terado.

"We never fall."
