Poste date: Tuesday, January 9, 2024

We have many requests from foreign customers who want to buy lands and build houses on them, rebuild old houses, renovate preowned condominiums in Japan. We find, however, that many foreigners are worried about communication in Japanese and are not able to convey the desired image and design well.

We, here, introduce one of the most experienced architects and architectural offices, that understand Japanese real estate including its characteristics and various related laws, and that you can consult in English as well.
