Meet the Japanese Realtor Who Sells Murder Houses | ASIAN BOSS

Okuma Akira, a real estate agent in Tokyo, takes selling property to a whole different level. He and his company make it their goal to sell real estate that the Japanese call “jiko bukken,” or “stigmatized property.” Namely, these homes had owners whose residency there have ended in suicide or murder, or whose deaths weren’t discovered until much later because these residents lived alone. We followed Akira to one such property and asked him about this niche housing market.

Special thanks to Okuma Akira for sharing his story with us.
