The most common forms of housing in Japan are mansions and apāto.

  • A mansion (?????) is typically a concrete apartment/condominium complex of three or more floors.
  • An apāto (????) (from the English word “apartment”) is the Japanese-term for a two-storey apartment building, usually made of wood and iron.

Should I buy land or a house? Buying a vacant lot is animportant and complex decision, just like any real estate purchase. If you buy a house, it's probably so you can live in it; but with land, you could choose to build your own house, use the property as a long-term investment or even to start up a business.

Do Japanese homes have ovens? Many Japanese houses aren't equipped with large ovens for baking and grilling. You could get a microwave-oven that will function asboth. Though much smaller than Western-style ovens, it will fit on your small counter space, and you'll be able to prepare a wider variety of foods with one.

Do Japanese homes have central heating? Japan doesn't have central heating. This is how they survive in winter — it's ingenious! As winter falls in Japan, people in almost every house get out their kotatsu - a hybrid of a table, blanket and a heater. This is because, somewhat surprisingly, in Japan there's no such thing as centralheating.

Is living in a big house worth it? A bigger house means everything is bigger and more expensive to repair. A bigger roof will cost more than a small one, and the more windows you have, the more expensive it will be to upgrade or replace them. Flooring is typically priced by the square foot, so more carpet and tile will always lead to highercosts.
