Are foreigners allowed to own property in Japan?
When we asked expats in Japan if foreigners are allowed to own property, they answered...
"Foreigners are allowed to own property in Japan, but there are certain restrictions. Generally, foreigners are not allowed to own land in Japan, but they can own buildings and other structures on the land. Foreigners can also own condominiums, which are a type of real estate that is owned by individuals rather than by the government. In order to purchase property in Japan, foreigners must obtain a residence card and register with the local government. Additionally, foreigners must have a valid visa and be able to prove that they have sufficient funds to purchase the property," said another in Japan.
