A few intrepid Japanese have expressed a desire to take Russia up on its land offer

The other day it was mentioned that Russia’s Duma followed through with a program to give to Russians and interested but carefully screened foreigners, 2.5 acres of land in eastern Russia to settle under certain conditions. Suptnik conducted a poll and it indicated that some intrepid Japanese would be interested in the opportunity. As Russian-Japanese relations continue to develop hopefully mutually beneficial, more Japanese companies will take steps to set up some of their operations in Russia.

Intrepid Japanese Intrigued by Free Land Offer in Russia’s Far East

At least 24 percent of Japanese surveyed indicated that they’d be ready to move to Russia’s Far East to settle a free plot of land there, according to a poll conducted by Sputnik’s Japanese edition.

A poll conducted by Sputnik’s Japanese edition revealed that about 24 percent of respondents claim they are willing to move to Russia’s Far East if they are provided with a free plot of land there.

The May 14 survey came a few weeks after Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law offering land plots of 1 hectare (2.5 acres) in the country’s Far East to citizens for free.

“When it comes to Russia, I would in any case want to move,” a Twitter user nicknamed GraceOhara said.

Another Internet surfer said that “even though I missed the voting, I would have gladly moved to the Russian Far East.”
