    Why KORYOYA houses?

    The traditional Japanese houses listed on KORYOYA are all built before 1950 with the traditional construction method.

    The traditional method is the result of more than a thousand years of past carpenters passing down their efforts and wisdoms. As no new houses can be built with the traditional construction method under current law, the high craftsmanship is in danger of becoming a dying art.

    Flow & Services

    The purchasing flow and the types of services you may need depends on factors such as where you live, your ability to communicate in Japanese, and your intended use of the property.
