I lived in Japan for a few years back in 2016 - 2018. I’m now back in the USA, but I’m interested in perhaps buying an akiya on the cheap. However, I’d like to live there for just part of the year. Is that possible? I don’t have a specific location in mind right now, but certainly have preferences. I’m also curious about the costs of akiya in terms of property taxes.
My Japanese language skills are adequate to handle non-English-speaking sellers although I’d probably want a bilingual lawyer to make sure all the legal language is correct.
Any help or advice would be appreciated, thank you!
