This is a historic 2-story wooden shophouse located a 1-minute walk from Iriya Station. This neighborhood is about a 15-minute walk north of Ueno.

This is essentially a land sale with the old building included as-is, under the assumption that a buyer would demolish and redevelop the site. As a result, no information has been provided on the traditional shophouse (no photos, no floor plan, no building age or size).

The land fronts onto the 33-meter wide Showa-dori Street. There is a road widening plan in place along this street. That road widening plan includes approximately the first 3.9 meters of this land (no permanent structure can be built on this portion as the land will eventually have to be converted to road use).

The land is zoned commercial with a maximum floor-area ratio of 700%.

Flood Risk:

1] Located in a 3.0 ~ 5.0 meter flood risk zone in the event that the Arakawa River overflows. In this scenario, flood waters are expected to last for over two weeks. 

2] Located in a 0.5 ~ 1.0 meter flood risk zone in the event that heavy rainfall exceeds stormwater drainage capacity (690mm total rainfall and peak rain of 153 mm per hour).

3] Located in a <0.5 meter flood risk zone in the event of high tides from a large-scale typhoon (910hPa) moving at 73km/hr and with maximum wind speed of 75km/hr.
