Planning to have a house here in Japan, but it's a very complicated task, even for the japanese. Financial issues, what type or style of houses one can build, but how to start is the question one has to think about to begin with.
I offer some advice following the flow-chart, step-by-step, the process of building a house here in Japan.
Please feel free to ask anything.
Just let me know your situation, so I know where you stand at.
I'm an architect here in Japan. Architecture is my life.
