Tokyo in particular is seeing an immense amount of construction. According to the Urban Research Institute Corporation, 130 hotels have opened in the Japanese capital in 2018 alone and 190 are still to be completed before 2020. All this certainly means that real estate prices in Tokyo have been climbing ever higher. Even though the number of tourists visiting Japan has nearly tripled in the past five years, experts have warned about a post-Olympic industry collapse if property is sold at inflated rates.
Hotel construction has not only picked up in Tokyo, but also in other major Japanese cities expecting an influx of tourists in 2020. Sometimes, this building boom also had some side effects. In Kyoto, a temple from the Heian period was found when excavations for a new hotel began.
