Weekly Newsletter

20 New Listings Every Week

I scour thousands of house listings every week, and pick only the absolute best properties for subscribers, most under $100k.

Interactive Map Of All Listings

Every newsletter features a map that links to the original listing and its English translation, where you can find detailed info, extra photos, and contact info of the seller.

How To Buy A House in Japan

Buying a house in Japan as a non-resident has its share challenges. I'll guide you on your journey with helpful articles and information.

Your Dream Home In Japan, For Cheap

Are you interested in owning your own piece of paradise in Japan?
The weekly Cheap Houses Japan newsletter will help you find it!

What To Expect

  • Every Tuesday you get the email Newsletter directly in your inbox. It includes my 20 best house listings in Japan between $10k and $150k.*
  • Included are links to the original listings, where you can find additional info, photos, and the contact information for the sellers. 
  • Weekly articles and helpful information about buying property, living in Japan, and owning a vacation home.
  • You get 4 newsletters per month with 80 incredible houses. 
  • Access to ALL previous newsletters when signing up.
  • Monthly subscription is $10 per month (or $90 per year). You may cancel at any time. 
  • I do occasionally include listings over $150k if I find something that is exceptional value for your money. 
  • Many of the best listings are only available in Japanese, so many of the links are to Japanese websites. They are easy to view in English using the Google Translate link I provide.
  • You do NOT have to pay me any sort of commission if you end up buying a house. But I would love to hear from you if you do 🙂

New Additions: 

  • Each Newsletter has an interactive map that links to all the current newsletter properties.
  • The map also links to ALL 400+ still available properties from past newsletters (preview below)

What Subscribers Are Saying

"I highly recommend Michael's newsletter and services.”

"I hired Michael to research very specific types of properties for me, all located within 2 hours of Tokyo. I was very impressed with the list he came back with! There are some fantastic properties at great prices for me to consider. I never would have found them on my own - never. I highly recommend Michael's newsletter and services.”

"Above and beyond our expectations. 100% recommended"

"My husband and I have been day dreaming of a house in Japan and we began house hunting a few months ago. To be honest, it's time consuming. There's so many real estate sites these days! We feel lucky to have come across Cheap Houses Japan's newsletter because it handpicks houses that absolutely make sense to what we're looking for. We've been subscribed for 3 months now and we definitely see the value of it. We even hired Michael as a consultant to get more information about the buying process and he went above and beyond our expectations. 100% recommended."
