Goku's house (悟空の家), also known as Grandpa Gohan's house (孫悟飯の家), is located at the foot of a forest near Mount Paozu. There is the hut where Goku lived with Grandpa Gohan as a boy and, some time after the end of the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, the Ox-King had the large house built near the hut for Goku, Chi-Chi and their family to live together. Incidentally, the Ox-King is often seen spending time with the family here as well.



Grandpa Gohan's hut and Goku's house

Goku's house features a kitchen in the white hut area, a bedroom with its window facing the old hut and presumably another bedroom in either the other side of the larger part or the narrow side area which connects to the larger part of the house. There is also an outdoor bathtub (which is effectively a steel barrel over the top of a fire) as seen during the first four Dragon Ball Z movies and the end of the Kid Buu Saga.

In the episode "Unwelcome Discovery", Android 16 states to Android 17 and Android 18 that Goku's house is located in the East District; its address is 58N 018, 439 East District to be exact.[1]

In Future Trunks' Alternate Timeline, Goku's house is where Future Goku passed away from Heart Virus his bedside surrounded by his wife Future Chi-Chi, family, friends, and fellow Future Z Fighters. Following the deaths of all the Z Fighters save for Future Gohan, Future Ox-King moved in with his daughter Future Chi-Chi due to the threat of the Androids and Future Chi-Chi being all alone after Future Gohan effectively moved out in order to readily confront the Androids.

In the Dragon Ball Super episode "Goku's Energy is Out of Control? The Struggle to Look After Pan", Goku destroys his house when he accidentally flies right through it due his Delayed Onset Ki Disorder; forcing Goku, Chi-Chi and Goten to stay at Gohan and Videl's home in Satan City for a while. By the next episode, however, Goku's house is back to normal.


Goku's and Gohan's houses in GT

At the end of Dragon Ball Z, Gohan is now shown living in a house next door to Goku's home with Videl and Pan. However, in "A Worldwide Problem", Goku's and Gohan's house are both destroyed by a Baby-infected Gohan and Goten while powering up to fight Goku and Pan. Both houses are later restored along with the earth by Porunga after the defeat of Baby.

Oddly enough, during the time of the Dragon Ball GT television special A Hero's Legacy, which takes place long after the end of Dragon Ball GT, the old hut still remains reasonably intact. However, there is absolutely no sign at all that the house for Goku and his family was ever there though it is likely their family residences may have been moved in the intervening years while Grandpa Gohan's house was likely left behind as a sort of memorial.

Known residents

  • Grandpa Gohan – Owner of the hut. Deceased.
  • Goku – Grew up in the hut as a child and technically inherited the hut after Grandpa Gohan's death which he lived in until his encounter with Bulma, but moved into the larger house built by Ox-King.
  • Chi-Chi – After her marriage to Goku, she moved from her father's castle on Fire Mountain into the larger house built by her father.
    • Future Chi-Chi - In the alternate timeline, lived with Future Gohan and Future Goku in the house built by her father and after Future Goku's death continued to reside there with her father after Gohan left to combat the Androids.
  • Gohan – Lived with Goku and Chi-Chi and eventually moves into a house in Satan City after marrying Videl and later next door to Goku's house along with their daughter, Pan.
    • Future Gohan - Lived with his father and mother until his father's death by Heart Virus. Apparently moved out following the deaths of the Future Z Fighters in order to be able to readily confront the Androids and possibly to keep his overbearing mother Future Chi-Chi from interfering with his training as she had during his youth.
  • Icarus – During certain movies and filler material, most notably the Garlic Jr. Saga and the filler episode "Goku's Ordeal".
  • Goten – Grew up in the house that Chi-Chi, Gohan (until he got married and moved out) and Goku (after he came back to life) live in.


  • Ox-King – Responsible for constructing the large house used by his daughter Chi-Chi, son-in-law Goku, and grandsons Gohan and Goten. Has only been seen sleeping in the house once, so it is unknown if he lives there, but he is seen there with Chi-Chi whenever she's there. It is likely that he resides their while visiting his daughter and her family.
  • Bulma - Briefly visited the hut Goku inherited from his Grandpa Gohan. In Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug, she briefly stayed the night with Chi-Chi and Gohan (before he left with Icarus) in the Son family home.
  • Krillin - Occasionally stayed in the Son family home on several occasions while visiting Goku and Gohan. He briefly slept here along with the Ox-King during the Vegeta Saga Filler after he failed to inform Chi-Chi of Goku's death during the battle with Raditz and Gohan's abduction by Piccolo.
  • Piccolo – During the Trunks Saga to readily train with Goku and Gohan, though apparently preferred to (or was forced to by Chi-Chi) sleep (and meditate) outside.
  • Yamcha - During the Androids Saga, he stayed there while Goku was bedridden via Heart Virus, assisting Chi-Chi in caring for Goku and possibly to stand guard in the event they were attacked by the Androids.

  • In the anime, Goku's house was introduced in the very first episode of Dragon Ball Z. However, it was not introduced in the manga until the middle of the Frieza Saga. As such, the anime's design of the house was initially different from the manga's design (though still similar in size). The anime's version of the house is also featured in the first five DBZ movies and several video games. During the Trunks Saga, however, Goku's house in the anime was redesigned to match how it looked in the manga and would remain this way for the rest of the anime (including Super and GT).
