Koyaura (小屋裏) – the attic of a house or loft. The koyaura is often outfitted with similar interior finishing as the rest of the house, ie, wallpapering, flooring, and trimming, only shorter in height. By law here in Japan, the koyaura cannot exceed 1400 millimeters in height lest it be counted as living quarters — resulting in higher taxes as well as a higher cost of construction.
