Real estate investment in Japan
According to the results of the 2018 Housing and Land Statistics Survey, the number of vacant houses in Japan was 8.489 million, an increase of 3.6%, and the vacant house rate was 13.6%, the highest ever.
According to the 2013 Basic Land Survey, the area of ​​vacant lots owned by households nationwide has increased 1.4 times in the last 10 years (2003: 681㎢ → 2013: 981㎢). .. Further vacant lots are expected to increase in the future. Looking at the changes in the supply of residential land nationwide, the supply of residential land in FY2018 was 5,967ha (up 6.3% from FY2016), of which the public supply was 407ha (down 40% from FY2016). , Private supply is 5,560ha (up 13% from 2016), and has been around 6,000ha in recent years.
Japan's population began to decline after peaking in 2008, and today we are entering a full-scale depopulation society. During the bubble period, comprehensive land measures were developed, including the enactment of the Basic Land Law and the suppression of speculative land transactions, with a focus on land price measures against the backdrop of soaring land prices. However, during the period of population decline, land as a whole was developed. Amid declining usage needs, land use is encouraged through incentives, etc., while promoting planned town development and community development for economic growth, regional revitalization, formation of a safe and sustainable society, etc. It is important to promote optimal use according to land conditions by inducing, promoting investment, and facilitating transactions.
According to the "Web Questionnaire Survey of Unused Land Owners," the intentions of owners of "unused land" regarding the sale or abandonment of their land are "because they are likely to sell." Approximately half (49.8%) of the owners are willing to sell the land, including "I'm going to sell it" (24.8%) and "I don't expect to sell it, but I want to let it go if I can." (25.0%).
Machiya, a traditional house in Kyoto, is also being demolished every year, although various subsidies are provided by the city government.
Detached house in Japan
From the perspective of solving these structural issues in Japan, Rakurakusha will support investment in Japan and the advancement of highly-skilled human resources from rapidly growing overseas countries.
For custom-built detached houses , which is one of the characteristics of Japanese dwellings, Rakurakusha has formed a business alliance with a major house makers, from the land search, conception, and design stages to the detailed design of the house and the introduction of furniture. We will give detailed advice and support.
Support for expanding into Japan
Not only in the ancient city of Kyoto, but also in local cities in Japan, traditional culture is inherited in modern times, and there are cities that constantly create new culture based on it.
On the other hand, there are many such traditional long-established companies that abandon business continuity and close due to a shortage of successors and a decrease in demand in Japan.
Inheritance of technology and culture has become a major issue now, along with a regional revitalization supported by local governmental supports called Chihou-Sousei.
One solution to these issues is to capture the growth of overseas and encourage the advancement of companies and highly-skilled human resources into Japan. Large cities such as Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, and Fukuoka are very attractive as markets, and high-end Japanese culture and technology are concentrated.
As in the typical case of Niseko, Hokkaido, there are resorts and regions that have come back to life with foreign investment. There are still many such potential resources and places in Japan, and it is our desire to create a "second Niseko".
We provide total support together with domestic partners, including establishment of a company in Japan, business tie-ups with companies, acquisition of trainees and permanent resident visas from each country, living aspects of highly-skilled human resources, support for child education, etc.
Paintings and Art Works
Japanese paintings and art works are popular with a wide range of overseas collectors. Contemporary art by Yayoi Kusama, Yoshitomo Nara, Takashi Murakami, etc. has gained worldwide popularity and has stability and future potential as an asset value.
In addition, the masters of Japanese-style painters such as Hiroshi Senju, Kaii Higashiyama, and Ikuo Hirayama etc. are also very popular from the perspective of a group of works that represent Japan's aesthetic sense and culture.
On the other hand, purchasing such valuable works directly from overseas involves various risks such as confirmation of the actual product, whether it is a reliable route, confirmation of the certificate, and even transportation. We place the highest priority on long-term relationships of trust with our customers and ensure that our products are delivered.

Rakurakusha has its own license as an art dealer and cooperates with a long-established gallery that has a long-standing relationship of trust to meet the individual needs of our customers. We will only provide works that are safe, reliable, and valuable as assets.
We also meet individual needs such as antiques and jewelry.
