Depending on your qualification, a bank may be able to lend you as much as 150,000,000 yen or so with a repayment period of 15 years or so.  The largest bottleneck in borrowing from a lender for this property would be the building’s age (built in 1973) and limited period of time for repayment. 

 

But this means that you should be able to purchase it easily, if only you can inject an adequate amount of down-payment.

 

 

Shimoochiai station is 2nd stop from Shinjuku station of Seibu Shinjuku Line.

 

 

Please let us know, if you are interested in this property.

 

 

Best regards,

Commercial building in the world’s most famous red-light district is for sale

Dear Investors:

 

 

A commercial building in Kabukicho is for sale.  Kabukicho is Japan’s most famous red-light district which is always flooded with people, including international tourists.

 

 

Address: 1, Okubo, Shijuku-ku (8-min walk to Shinjuku station)

Land: 478.95 square meters

Floor area: 3,007.02 square meters

Structure: SRC / 9-story + 1-story underground

Year built: 1965

Others: fully renovated in 2003, power generator (so that electricity can be generated and used on the premises even if electricity’s supply stops by accident), parking for 6 cars

Annual return: 121,167,180 yen

Asking price: 1,820,000,000 yen

Current yield: 5.2%

 

 

Shinjuku station is probably the world’s most busy train station.  Many train lines – JR, Keio, Odakyu, Seibu, Tokyo Metro, and Tokyo Subway, all meet at Shinjuku.

 

 

Although it is almost a surety that this building will be commercially and financially successful, we would like you to pay extra attention to the neighborhood.  Please remember that gangster groups have been participating in business activities in the town for a long time, although their overall influence has recently been diminished. 

 

 

Please be careful when you purchase real estate in Kabukicho or anywhere in Japan where gangsters or yakuzas may still be powerful.

 

 

Best regards,

News – Landmark of Shinjuku has been purchased by an electronics retail chain

Dear Investors,

 

 

Koseinenkin Kaikan (= a convention hall built by Japan’s welfare pension program for corporate employees)  has been on an auction since December 1st, 2009; and Yodobashi Kamera (= a mega electrics retail shop with a nation-wide network of shops) has won the bid at 12,000,000,000 yen on February 12th, 2010.

 

 

Shinjuku Koseinenkin Kaikan has been in business since April 15th, 1961, and has been functioning as a hotel, a restaurant, and a multi-purpose convention hall which has staged music concerts of domestic and world-famous musicians. 

 

 

Yodobashi Kamera is planning to make the facility be a museum of cameras.

 

 

The purchase may create new foot traffic because Yodobashi Kamera is well known and the real estate is only 10-min walk away from Shinjuku station.  

 

 

Economic activities in eastern regions of Shinjuku may grow further and accelerate faster due not only to the on-going land development in Shinjuku 7 chome but also to the Yodobashi Kamera’s purchase of a prime property.

 

 

Best regards,

 

 

Minato Asset Management

 

 

The Japan’s organization for welfare pension is going to use the hall till March 31st, 2010.
