Abstract: The Japanese have reached a turning point in their lending and investment activities in the United States. With the support of Japanese regulatory authorities, Japanese lenders and owners are moving to dispose of their real estate assets as economic realities outweigh the perceived stigma of selling assets that have declined in value. Consequently, Japanese disinvestment from 1995 to 2000 could approach the level of Japanese investment in the U.S. from 1985 to 1990.
