Teru Oshima has mapped out stigmatized locations in Japan

The Wall Street Journal ran a very interesting story this week – just in time for Halloween – about a very clever entrepreneur who has mapped out stigmatized locations in Japan:

“Mr. Oshima has built one of Japan’s most popular real-estate websites by compiling anonline map showing properties with histories of ghastly events. In Japan, that is valuable information: Landlords often give a discount to renters willing to take property that has a stigma.”

At the end of the day, everyone cares about real estate values!
