Hello. If possible, I'd like to see the pictures of them.

Of course, only the explanation is OK.

Thank you in advance.

Do it yourself.
Go to Yahoo
and search for
porch images
etc
Thank you, but it's difficult to find images.

I searched for pictures, but I couldn't find picutures on the Yahoo.

In Japan, a balcony means a kind of room outside of the house.

A veranda is not a room. Just the place for putting something, drying the clothes, or smoking.

Would you tell me the difference between a balcony and veranda?

Thank you.

In the US, a porch is at street level. (You walk from the street onto the porch, and then knock on the door) A house can have a front porch and a back porch. Porches are narrow, often for sitting in front of the house and watching the activity on the street. Porches usually are covered by a roof, and open tooutside air.

A balcony is always above street level. You cannot walk to the street from the balcony (you have to climb down)
Apartment buildings can have a balcony for each unit.
A deck is made of wood, and a usually large a space for entertaining, such as a bar-be-que. Decks can be at different levels, but usually have steps to get to the street level. Normally decks are built in back of a house. A deck can be built around a swimming pool. It might be covered, but often not.
A patio is usually not made of wood. It is made of concrete or stone. It is for entertaining. Many modest homes have patios.
A veranda is a large porch, usually with a roof, sometimes enclosed. You find verandas on very large, expensive homes.
