  • Self-Storage in Japan

    Tatsuya Saji writes for ISS about the possibilities for growth in the storage industry in Japan.

    "Japan, a country smaller than the state of California, is home to 127 million people and approximately 49 million households. Almost half of the housings are built as complexes, such as apartments and condos. The average number of rooms in typical Japanese home is 4.65, and the average living space is 92.7 square meters (998 square feet).

    "There are only approximately 100,000 self-storage units available for rent in Japan, less than 0.2 percent of the total households. Needless to say, the country is hurting for storage space."

Since January 2020, she has been 2 or more weeks late with payment 7 times, including November, which is now 24 days late. She has mentioned the last couple of times she paid that...
