Shōji doors are often designed to slide open, and thus conserve space that would be required by a swinging doorcitation needed

They are used in traditional houses as well as Western-style housing, especially in the washitsu Japanese-style room In modern construction, the shōji does not form the exterior surface of the building; it sits inside a sliding glass door or windowcitation needed


Formerly the word shōji was used to refer to both fusuma, formally known as karagami shōji 唐紙障子, and shōji, referred to as akari shōji 明り障子citation needed
