Move to Zentsūji City, Kagawa!
Every now and then we receive feedback from people who have had success purchasing a home in Japan and setting up a new life. We love hearing these stories. Recently we heard from the nice people at BridgetoJapan, who have told us of their success finding a home in Zentsūji, Kagawa. They also spoke of their meeting with Zentsūji City officials who expressed enthusiasm for attracting foreigners to move to their city and start building a future.

We are happy to announce that BridgetoJapan are available to provide advice on how you can do this too! You can read an introduction from them in this article: Our story of buying an Akiya house in Japan.

Akiya Japan would like to invite other users to share their experiences of moving to Japan -- stories you would like to share with the community and information/services you believe would be helpful. We would be happy to publish submissions in our upcoming "articles" area.

More Akiya Bank sources
We are currently working to add properties from many more official city listings, so this month you will find listings from a wider variety of sources. The volume of these listings is immense and will be added gradually. Also we have been receiving an unprecedented amount of feedback this month. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to contact us. Please bear with us while we address these messages with thoughtful responses.

Digital Nomad Visa
Good news this month. Japan has announced the introduction of the new "Digital Nomad" visa at the end of March. It is such a great opportunity as it allows foreigners to stay and work in Japan for up to 6 months, and - if applicable - a spouse and children may accompany. Known requirements are that you must make a minimum of around $68,000 USD in your employment and you must provide your own private health insurance. For more information see this article: Japan to allow longer stays for digital nomads to boost consumption. Also we are working hard this month to broaden our searchable database of public akiya properties. Please expect a greater range of sources in the coming weeks.
