Finding Great Real Estate Deals at Japan’s Top Ski Resorts

With Japan’s borders remaining largely closed since the start of 2020, there have been virtually no international visitors to enjoy the epic snowfall and awesome hospitality for which the country is so famous. However, the weakening yen and some owners looking to divest their assets mean there are real opportunities, as Chris de Uchi Explain :

“Over the past 6 months, the yen has weakened by around 20% against most major currencies. That means your hard-earned dollars go a lot further when it comes to buying Japanese real estate. Combined with this, we are seeing more and more adverts popping up online where owners are definitely willing to negotiate. All in all, now is a great time to invest, before borders open and demand pushes prices up again. »

Chris helped us choose some great properties from Japan’s top ski resorts, all under $500,000. Whether you’re looking for a condo in Niseko or your own lodge in Nagano, there’s something for everyone this month.
