From Pacific Business News:

There seems to be no end to the interest in Hawaii real estate from Japanese investors, even though there’s been a slight dropoff in the number of tourists from Japan.

Sal Miwa, CEO and chairman of Myland Hawaii Realty Ltd., which is based in Japan and has mostly Japanese clients, told PBN that the firm has been getting many requests from clients to find Hawaii properties to invest in, especially in Waikiki and Kakaako…There have been many Japanese investments in Hawaii over the years, including hotels, golf courses, residential and other types of commercial properties. Another Asian country, China, has also started to invest in Hawaii.

Read all about how Chinese investors are buying their pieces of Paradise, taking advantage of Hawaii’s proximity, culture and economic and educational opportunities in the cover story of the Oct. 10 print edition of Pacific Business News.
