Japan: A Rural Wonderland

Akiya & Inaka is a resource and service for global citizens looking to stake their claim to a piece of rural Japan.

The Japanese countryside has become a global myth of sorts. News articles and blogs suggesting free houses in Japan have captured the world’s attention. However, the reality is less sensational: the properties are frequently inexpensive but rarely free, and buying property in Japan is a complicated process that requires specialized advice.

That’s where we come in. Akiya & Inaka was created to demystify our namesake:

Akiya – vacant properties, including, but not limited to, houses.

Inaka – the Japanese countryside, which refers to anywhere outside of metropolitan Japan.

Our collection of articles are curated to serve as a resource to help people learn about exciting properties and alternative lifestyles.

Our goal is simple: finding your home in the Japanese countryside.
