Get to know our Sister Association: The Hyogo Takken Real Estate Association.



尼崎市は、昨年、住宅ローン専門金融機関による「本当にすみやすい街大賞2018 in 関西」で、なんと1位に選ばれました。






Hyogo Takken (the equivalent to our state association) has 14 local associations.

In this edition, we would like to highlight the Amagasaki Local Association. This association is located in eastern part of the prefecture and boarders Osaka. In 2018 Amagasaki was voted as # 1 place to live in the Kansai region by the Mortgage and Lending Association.

Many people felt that it was strange choice, since it has been known as an industrial and manufacturing area. However, in the last 20-30 years, Amagasaki has been transformed to a very livable community. Many of the old large factory areas have been redeveloped. With new condos, streets, sidewalks, a lot of store front and close proximity to Osaka (the third largest city in Japan at 2.7M), it is one of the fastest growing areas. On March 19, 2019, the re-constructed Amagasaki Castle opened.

Come and visit the vibrant city of Amagasaki!
