Japan Giving away free Homes in Rural Towns

Tokyo – There are around 8.2 Million houses in Japan that are vacant today, cursed by some Japanese superstitions. To fill them out, Japan is giving them away free of cost, or at highly discounted prices to the Japanese citizens. And all this forms a part of “Akiya” scheme.

Even though these free houses might sound like a scam to many. But there are way too many houses as compared to people present in Japan. As a result, they are getting free houses now.

As per the National Institute of Population and Social Security, the population of Japan is going to fall drastically over the next many years. And this means very less people would need houses then. Most of the younger generation is moving to city and leaving rural households behind, to earn a livelihood. This has resulted in a lot of abandoned houses in rural areas, which are also called “ghost” houses by many.

Hence, giving those houses for free is a way of survival for the Japanese government. The local govt. is also trying to help implement the scheme by offering subsidies to renovate those properties.

According to the scheme, the houses would be handed over to those people only who are under 43 years of age, and have younger children going to schools. Also, they should agree to stay in those towns permanently. When these conditions will be met, people can take those houses for free.

Since many mishappenings occurred in those houses, it led to their abandonment. But the price for new houses are way beyond the reach of many. And that makes an akiya home, the only possibility for most of the Japanese people.
