Are you aware that you can buy a house & lot in Japan for as little as $10,000. Surprising but true! Japan has a plethora of cheap properties subject to auction by the courts. Some are in rural areas subject to depopulation, but there are plenty of properties in the cities too.
However, one of the top reasons why foreigners find it a huge barrier to invest in Japanese property is their unfamiliarity with the processes of buying property in Japan. This is on top of language barrier and culture barrier that impedes negotiation for better prices.
