Capitalize on Japan's economic recoveryOverseas Property | 28 May 2020
Like the rest of the world, Japan has been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, but Keith Wong, Business Development Manager of TY Property Development, maintains a positive outlook on the Japanese property market, because of the country’s steady economic recovery, a stable currency, a low entry threshold, and sound returns on investment.
Wong points out that investing in Japanese properties is a sound defensive strategy as it poses a relatively lower risk than investing in other mainstream products, such as stocks, bonds and oil. “It is important to opt for a safe and promising product to invest in during the current economic recession,” he adds.
He also reminds investors that Japan is emerging from 25 years of economic recession, and its property market is showing signs of steady growth, with prices increasing by 20% between 2012 and now.
With the implementation of the ten-year plan by the Japanese government, Wong believes that a golden era of Japanese property market is about to commence. Significant developments include the Tokyo 2021 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Expo 2025 and the establishment of casinos in Osaka. “These events will work magic on top of the strong economic base of the country,” he notes.
As a booster to Osaka’s economy, Nishinari Ward in South Central Osaka is provisioned to be transmogrified into a Chinatown by 2025, before the opening of the Osaka-Kansai Japan Expo 2025. By then, the area will see a total of 120 new shops in Chinatown with a projected 22.4 billion yen in sales. There will be a brand new landmark six-star hotel at South Central Osaka, developed by one of the leading Japanese hotel companies, and scheduled to open in March 2022.
