Hi all, I have just completed the 4th edition (2011-12 fiscal year) update of our Japan Foreclosed Property Report. We had already written a great deal about the earthquake risks in different parts of Japan, and in light of the recent safety issues related to the tsunami and nuclear reactors, I have also included details on those issues.
I used to be an energy/mining analyst, and I studied geology, so I am happy to include those subjects to allay any concerns about living in Japan. The death of thousands of people might discourage people as to the safety of living in Japan....but then Japan adapted to living with earthquakes years ago, and it will now recognise the need to adapt to tsunamis. In any respect Japanese beaches are the least appealing aspect of life in Japan, so its a false economy to buy close to the beach. Mostly they are rocky and depressingly grey. Japan's charm is in the cities and mountains.NZ Property Guide Philippine Real Estate Guide Japan Foreclosed Guide
