Ms. Wu: “This is a luxury two-bedroom apartment located in Azabu Juban, one of Tokyo’s top areas. This is about 170 million yen. I think this property is a great bargain.”
Mr. Bhavin: “I think it’s affordable. Since the beginning of the year, the yen has fallen 30%. 170 million yen is much more affordable than it was a year ago. Right now is the perfect time to invest.”
Ms. Wu next shows Mr. Bhavin a 500 million yen, 213 square meter, tower mansion property in Takanawa on the 34th floor.
The property, which is a 6-minute walk from Shirokane-Takanawa Station, has a 3LDK floor plan and is a sprawling 213 square meters.

The master bedroom also has a luxurious chandelier and plenty of room for a king-sized bed.
Mr. Bhavin: “I’m curious about the price…”
Ms. Wu: “500 million yen”
Mr. Bhavin: “I think it’s a good deal for Tokyo. There aren’t many properties like this. The price is reasonable.”
The number of foreigners looking for properties in Japan, like Mr. Bhavin, have tripled since March of this year due to the weaker yen.
Ms. Wu: “Since the yen has weakened, we have received more and more inquiries from various countries, including the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, and China.”
