Who is Heritage Homes Japan?

Heritage Homes Japan is a small team of dedicated professionals, all with a passion for restoring Japan’s beautiful architectural heritage. We are very niche and very focused; we work predominantly with pre-war Kyoto Machiya (shophouses) and traditional farmhouses.

These are the essence of traditional Japanese homes, and it is our privilege to preserve and restore them for future generations.

We also believe these buildings are by far the best real estate investment you can make in Japan. Modern trends come and go, but Japan’s rich heritage of traditional wooden houses is eternally popular.
