Official Average Roadside Land Prices of Japan and Tokyo 2014

Post: Friday July 11, 2014

On July 1 the National Tax Agency released the average roadside land price in 2014 (as of January 1) and all the areas around Tokyo rose. The price average in Tokyo rose 1.8%; it was the first increase in prices since 2008.



Though the Tokyo land prices showed signs of recovery, the national average price has continued its 6 years consecutive downward trend. Experts analyze that the increase in Tokyo results from the economy’s recovery by Abenomics effect and an increase of purchases of condominiums for investment.


The highest roadside value nationwide is 23,630,000Yen per square meter in front of the store “ Kyukyodo” in Chuo ward in Tokyo. This has been the highest priced space in Tokyo for 29 consecutive years.

Land prices also went up in the neighboring Kachidoki in Chuo ward where many new high rise condominiums are being developed. The Kachidoki area is close to where the athlete's village and facilities of Tokyo Olympics in 2020 will be, and is drawing attention due to the hopes for an improvement of the infrastructure in that area.


The highest rise in roadside value in Tokyo marked 9.8% along the “Shinjuku-Dori (Street)” in 3-Chome, Shinjuku, Shinjuku Ward. This resulted mostly from the opening of the direct link of Tokyu Toyoko Line and Fukutoshin Line and new link to Shinjuku 3-chome station.

What is Average roadside land price?

The number of locations priced for the Average roadside land price is much more than for the standard land price that is announced by Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, and so the average roadside land price provides a more detailed picture of the real market land prices.
