It lay along the Sea of Japan and due to its elongated shape, and the Noto Peninsula jutting out, the region is known as a 'rising dragon'.

    We are in the process of building new relationships with local real estate agents, and we hope to list more traditional houses in different regions of Japan. If you have a particular region that you are interested in, kindly fill out the contact form below so we can notify you whenever a new property becomes available in the targeted region.

    Why KORYOYA houses?

    The traditional Japanese houses listed on KORYOYA for sale are all built before 1950 with the traditional construction method which is the result of more than a thousand years of past carpenters passing down their efforts and wisdoms.

    As no new houses can be built with the traditional construction method under current law, the high craftsmanship is in danger of becoming a dying art.

    Flow & Services

    The purchasing flow and the types of services you may need depends on factors such as where you live, your ability to communicate in Japanese, and your intended use of the property.
