That looks like a really interesting property. My wife and I have intended to live for a while in Japan for some time now, but things just haven't
lined up. We'll see what the future holds.
We are looking for unimproved land, though. The allure of building a home perfectly suited to us is too great to buy someone else's house.
We'll definitely keep your cabin in mind if we decide to vacation there though.
By any chance, do you know what citizenship requirements are like in Japan, or what the limitations are for non-residents to purchase land?

Dimithae, did you mean Dancing Rabbit? I keep up with them on Facebook.
I'm still unsure about joining a community...
Do you know if their ecovillage is in violation of any local code, or has it all been approved by the county?
Have you found that the state of Missouri always allows alternative builds, or do they just tend to turn a blind eye? I fear building under a council
that turns the blind eye one day, only to enforce a code the next. I've seen too many horror stories, and would like to buy somewhere where it is all

Spartacus699, what can you tell me about Costa Rica?

Yes, I've been considering Oregon a lot lately. I'm not sure any of these structures are actually technically allowed, though.
The reason I've not done code research myself to a great degree is that it tends to change for every county. That's why I'm polling to see if there
is anyone with personal experience that I can draw from as a starting point.
What is Bureau of Land Management land? Can it be purchased, or only rented?
Thank you all for your input!
