Rise in Land Prices
Long term of depression seems to be finally over for some prefectures in Japan, including Okinawa.
Obvious reason for that prediction is, shown by the increase of Land Price.
Okinawa is the only prefecture that “natural population growth rate” is increasing in Japan.
Also, Okinawa is well known for tourist attraction and welcomes many tourists from all over the world, including from other prefectures of Japan as well. That creates the demands and needs for hotels, shops, and other facilities to satisfy the wants of tourists.
These demands lead to aggressive investment in real estate market in Okinawa.
