With the recent spread of teleworking due to the Corona disaster, we often see news about the diversification of lifestyles, such as “regional migration, country living, multi-location living, and vacations.
One of the reasons for this is the “Local Region Creation Start-up Support Project and Local Region Creation Migration Support Project” that the Japanese government is implementing to eliminate the concentration of people in one area.
This program is very useful for people who want to move from the Tokyo metropolitan area to a rural area, change jobs or start a business in a UIJ-turn, etc., and if the conditions are met, they can receive support to start a new life smoothly.
The “Housing” Support Program
Some programs offer assistance with rent, moving expenses, home acquisition, and renovation expenses, while others provide a house or land to those who continue to live in the area for a certain period.
In addition, prefectural and municipal governments offer various other support programs covering “work,” “child-rearing,” and “medical care.
In addition to support systems, there are many other advantages to emigrating to a rural area, such as “rich natural environment,” “low cost of living,” “relaxed environment,” “easy interaction with neighbors,” etc. However, some people may feel uneasy about going to an unknown place.
Some Regions Offer “Trial Migration” Programs
These include “immigrant experience housing,” which allows people to stay for a short period of time, from a few days to a month or longer, and the “regional development cooperative program,” which encourages people to settle down by engaging in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries and cooperative activities with the local community.
By experiencing the people and lifestyle of the local community, one can get a clearer picture of what it is like to live there.
We also recommend living in a village house complex where you can interact with local residents in a rich natural environment!
Village houses save you money on initial costs, and there are properties all over Japan, so once you have decided on your ideal environment and conditions for moving, you can easily search for a room from our extensive list of rental properties.
