―Could you give us an overview of Dualtap and what it does?
Our company belongs to the Dualtap Group of general real estate investment companies. Our parent company, Dualtap Co., Ltd., was founded in 2006 and handles all aspects of the investment apartment market in Tokyo: the purchasing of land, development, sales, management, and operation.
