Furusato Nozei for Foreigners

How does Furusato Nozei work? Here's everything you need to know about this tax perk.

Luxurique’s latest project is Furusato Japan, the country’s only English-language Furusato Nozei platform, which supports foreigners in benefitting from this tax perk.


The idea behind the Furusato Nozei system is for taxpayers to “donate” to municipalities who will, in turn, send them a local return gift of their choice. The donation can then be claimed as a deduction from their income and residential taxes.


To outline the benefits and how to take part, the Furusato Japan team put together a free webinar, Furusato Nozei for Foreigners in Japan, with guest speakers, Ikuo Taniguchi, Managing Partner of Taniguchi Partners International Accounting & Tax Office and Naomi Mano, President and CEO at Luxurique Inc, a luxury hospitality, event management and consulting firm and founder of Furusato Japan.

This is a recording of the first in a webinar series laying out the Furusato Nozei process in simple terms, covering:


• What is Furusato Nozei and are you eligible?

• What are the benefits?

• How to calculate your donation

• How to use Furusato Japan, the only English-language Furusato Nozei platform


We will host another webinar in mid-December. If you have questions you’d like to ask a tax specialist or one of our team, please follow our new Instagram page for updates.


Furusato Japan offers meaningful return gifts in the form of exclusive experiences and local gifts. ​Through Furusato Japan, you can further immerse yourself in your adopted home while contributing to the continued preservation of its hidden cultural treasures.


The deadline for Furusato Nozei is December 31st.
