FACTS: A "jo" is a Japanese unit of area measurement used in real estate. The size of a jo (corresponding to the size of a tatami mat) varies by region in Japan. Recently, tatami seems to be shrinking -- older places have larger 6-jo rooms than newer ones.

This conversion table calculator is calibrated using a tatami mat size of 85.5cm wide and 179cm in length (about 33.5 by 70.5 inches).

The standard room size is 6-jo, and 4.5-jo for smaller ones. Newer places with hardwood floors come in a wider range of sizes, with 14-jo being a good-sized living/dining room.
