Japanese homes are cheaper because they build more Compared to skyrocketing housing costs in many Western cities, Japan has seen remarkable success in supplying affordable housing — even in cities with lots of economic growth.
Re-evaluating the Valence Model of Political Choice
New supply in Tokyo responds to demand by building lots of smaller one-bed flats for singles, and young people can live independently without needing to share with housemates. There are only 12 zones, defined according to the maximum nuisance level they allow, ranging from sleepy residential to polluting industrial uses.

This allows market supply to respond quickly as market demand changes and ensures development and density is driven by land values. If the demand to live in a city grows, older houses can be knocked down by landowners to provide more and better quality homes. Local taxes in Japan also encourage more homes As a result, there is a clear difference in Japan between the value of land and the value of the property that sits on it.
Like in other countries, the price of land in Japan reflects local economic strength and access to amenities and jobs. But unlike the UK , in Japan, the value of houses declines as they get older , because it so easy to supply new homes. Housing does not have to be expensive in prosperous cities. The housing shortage is something we have chosen to experience and can choose to change if we want to.
We may not want to copy-paste everything about Japanese housing into UK policy.
Letter: How Labour could widen political choice in Britain | The Independent
We may, for instance, choose a larger role for social housing, or slightly stronger heritage conservation. One side of the debate was personified by the father of modernist architecture, Le Corbusier, whilst the counter-argument was advanced by writer and journalist Jane Jacobs. But today, Jacobs is increasingly invoked in attempts to oppose new developments of any kind. When her seminal work The Death and Life of Great American Cities was written, there were almost 2 million rent-controlled or rent-stabilised apartments in New York City; nowadays, there are fewer than half that number.
Le Corbusier , on the other hand, is too often blamed for drab high-rise blocks.
The building was originally intended to be public housing, but the French government eventually sold off the flats to recoup costs. Building homes for a serious business in post-war Britain. These were the days of consensus, and very quickly Tory governments were actually competing with Labour governments about who could built the most council homes. Some of the council homes built post-war have stood the test of time better than others.
And so many of the post-war modernist high-rise blocks so despised by Jacobs quickly took on the organic self-organising traits that she held in such high regard and have become some of the most enduring and closely-knit communities in London.
