Taniguchi (professor at the Doshisha University) explained me one of the first days about living in a traditional japanese house. In a traditional house everything in life is takes place in the same room:
day: living, eating, sleeping, all in one room
year: summer, autumn, winter, spring (with differences in the garden and in the shutters)
lifetime: birth ceremony, marriage, funeral all took place in the same house.

Now we have in a modern japanese house different places for different events during the day. Ceremonies are held in hotels, also for accommodation.
