  • Overall, I found the japanese-architects.com platform to be of high quality and japanese-architects.com staff to be polite, engaging and practical. japanese-architects.com has become an indispensable part of my house building process.

    Without their support, it would have been exceedingly difficult to find an architect and to manage the complex process of purchasing the land, designing a new home and managing the construction process.

Service flow summary

1. Free Consultation

Architectural advisor will ask about your plans and wishes in-person or online.

The consultation is free of charge. Please contact us to get your project started.

Why is the service free of charge?
Our business is run based on the marketing fee we receive from the architect offices. Most of the architect offices in Japan don't have an in-house marketing function and japanese-architects.com is a platform for the registered architects.

Step 1

You can start with casual questions

Many clients visit us with questions like "I want to learn the general process" or "How much do you think our house will cost?".

Please feel free to contact us and book a meeting with a local professional.

2. Architect Meeting

We will make a tailored recommendation of the most suitable architect(s) based on what you tell us in the consultation.

If you didn't like the architect you were recommended or you talked to, you can come back to us as many times as you like and we can recommend you a new candidate. We will make a thorough consideration every time for your important house plan.

Step 2

3. Land Search and more

If you don't have land yet, we can provide full support with our partnered real estate agents. Not only do we get you information on land for sale but also investigate the pros and cons of the land together with you and the architect candidate.

We can also support you with your mortgage loan process as necessary.

Step 3

4. Decide Architect

If you are comfortable with the architect, who may also be advising you on the land search process, you can officially hire them as your architect.

japanese-architects.com will support you with the contract communication as well.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Are you an architect?
Q. Are you an architect yourself or are you an agent/consultant who can connect us to the right architect?
A. We are a platform of third-party consultants, not an architect by ourselves. We will listen to all your wishes and connect you to the right partners, including architects, banks, and real estate agents, based on your situation. We do not design buildings directly in our company.
How much does it cost?
Q. How much does it cost to receive the service?
A. It is for free. You don’t need to worry about additional cost.
(japanese-architects.com receives introductory fee from the architect side)
Are we able to decline?
Q. Are we able to decline the architect introduced by japanese-architects.com?
A. Of course. If you didn’t like specific things about the architect or their ideas, you can tell that honest feedback to us and we can recommend you another architect if you wish.

No fee, no risk. Make your important decision after you talk to us for free.
Can you also support projects in countries outside of Japan?
Q. Can you also support projects in countries outside of Japan?
A. Yes, we can. We can connect you with a Japanese architect who can take projects in foreign countries. You can either ask the architect to (A) work only on the design of your building, which is easier to be done remotely, or (B) manage and supervise the entire process, including the construction.

You will have more accuracy to build your house as it was designed in option (B) as the same person who designed your building will also supervise the construction process, but it will also cost a little more fee as you will need to ask the architect(s) to travel to your location.
Only residential houses?
Q. Does japanese-architects.com only deal with residential houses?
A. We can support you in any kind of architectural or design needs. Not only residential houses but also large buildings, commercial facilities, resort hotels, interior design, renovations... anything an architect can design. Get in touch with us and find out how you can get your support.
Purchase a property?
Q. Can japanese-architects.com help us purchase a property?
A. Yes. We have partners who have expertise and license in real estate brokerage and we will be able to work together with those partners to support you in purchasing a property.
Q. Need to build with an architect?
Q. Do we have to build with an architect?
A. You don't. If there is a specific builder or a house maker you like, we can support you in those kinds of processes as well. In those cases, we are asking for a separate service charge for project management and communication support, coordinating your project with all stake holders. Contact us for free to know how much the service charge will be in your case.

We do recommend to most of the clients to at least have a casual chat with an architect as you will have access to substantial degree of information. Generally, the flexibility of architects work well in achieving what foreign people want in their house, which is not necessarily the same as what Japanese people want.
