This is a full Japanese House Tour in Tokyo of a common style Japanese multigenerational house, which means it provides separate living space for 2 families so grandma and grandpa can live along with the family. In this Japan Home Tour, I’ll break down some of the costs for you of building a house in Japan. This Japan house costs 88 Million Yen about $560,000 USD to build before tax and without land. Given it’s a total 316㎡ that works out to be about $1800 per square meter or $164 per square foot. This costs fully ensures that it meets all of Japan’s strict building codes to withstand a m7 seismic level earthquake. The time it takes to construct this type of house in japan usually takes about 150 days and considering the time to plan and design from signing the contract, it takes about 200 days on average.
