“Jiko stoop”, or Japanese houses with the stigma of death

  • In Japan, houses where people have died evoke bad associations, making them difficult to sell
  • However, some agents have turned “posthumous” houses into businesses
  • One expert estimates that the prices of some of these properties could be reduced by up to 50%.
  • More such information can be found on the main page of Onet.pl

When Koji Hanahara first entered one of Japan’s “posthumous properties,” he saw a scene of a sad departure. The older man died alone in his apartment. His body was discovered two months later.

Disturbing as it was, it reminded Hanahara why he chose to do what he did. as president Marx Co., a Japanese real estate company that specializes in cleaning, renovating and selling infamous properties, is tasked with bringing these properties back on the market – despite their history.
