Be a Lifestyle Investor Like No Other

Becoming an investor in Japanese rural real estate from overseas is possible, but must it be navigated carefully to find success. The bureaucracy, paperwork, and costing difficulties alone make property investment seem risky, and that’s just the start.

Living full-time in Japan requires a visa. Vacation homes require maintenance. Bed & Breakfasts require a business license.

In order to accomplish any of the above, you need advice and assistance. This is where we come in. Work with us to uncover hidden gems, demystify the purchase process, and set yourself up for the experience of a lifetime as an investor in the Japanese countryside!

Investment in Japan’s Future

We’re the first to admit that being an investor in Japanese rural real estate hasn’t been the hottest topic. And for good reason! Akiya have been historically ignored for the bigger, shinier, more expensive properties of the city. As a result, this has created a vicious cycle, leaving properties across Japan to drift further from the public eye.

But with our eyes, we’ll dig through the rubble to make a successful investor out of you.We also provide registration and activation services, making investment in Japan’s countryside a reasonable proposition.
