Investing in Prosperity: How Japan’s Experience-Based
Tourism Boom Impacts Real Estate Opportunities
Hello esteemed readers and potential investors,
In the pulsating economic landscape of Japan,
a compelling trend is unfolding that holds significant implications for us all,
particularly those of us vested in international real estate investments.
Since last autumn, Japan has experienced a substantial resurgence in inbound tourism.

There’s been a considerable decline in ‘explosive buying’,

The rise in construction material costs and labour costs has been passed on to home buyers,
and prices have continued to rise. However, housing demand is weakening due to rising prices.
A survey by Tokyo Kantei found that the number of people who are interested
in buying a new home has decreased by 10% from the previous year.
This is due to a number of factors, including the rising cost of living,
the uncertainty of the economy, and the war in Ukraine.
