As reported on an NHK news program, many people in Tokyo raising children are moving out due to soaring housing prices due to rising land prices. Land prices are rising not only in Tokyo but nationwide, and appear to be at the highest rate of growth since the bubble period. As someone who lives in the city, I’m not happy about rising prices, but if the overconcentration in Tokyo is corrected even a little and regional decentralization progresses, then that might be a good thing. However, it is still unclear how long it will last, as it is a reaction to the coronavirus pandemic and a mini-bubble. After all, the real economy must be strong. (Kei)
