Who Am I?

Hi, I’m Michael, founder of CheapHousesJapan.com. Since studying abroad for a year in my university days, my dream has always been to buy a vacation house in Japan. A few years ago, after many hundreds of hours of research, and multiple trips to Japan to look at houses, I finally bought my beautiful vacation house in Kyushu — for the grand sum of $31,650I love my vacation home (photo on the left), and have spent months at a time there, even getting ‘stuck’ there for 6 months during the 2020 pandemic. 

My goal with this newsletter is to help YOU realize your dream of owning a vacation home in Japan — for cheap!
