As a leading provider of inheritance support for foreign nationals, in 2018 STK Legal began Legacy Tomodachi, a new service to help foreign nationals with matters of inheritance in Japan.
With a professional team including consultants who are native speakers of English, Chinese and Korean, we have a wealth of experience in handling inheritance cases for foreign nationals.
Our team has unparalleled experience helping with matters of Japanese inheritance, including foreign national heir(s) of Japanese inheritance, or when a foreign national passes away in Japan. We provide full support of legal procedures related to inheritance, changes to Japanese koseki (family register), acquisition of necessary certificates, and legal translation and interpretation services.
Visit Legacy Tomodachi to learn more about Japanese inheritance, including important things to know about the validity of wills, legacy planning, and the implications of Japanese inheritance tax on foreign nationals.
Legacy Tomodachi is operated by the STK Legal team. With content curated by licensed professionals (judicial scriveners and certified Japan CPA’s), we aim to be the foremost resource for information on inheritance in Japan.
