Abandonment of inheritance when a foreign parent or spouse living in Japan dies
Even if a foreigner living in Japan dies and the heir renounces inheritance or accepts a limited inheritance, in principle, the law of the foreigner's home country shall apply.
However, if the foreigner lived in Japan until his/her death, or if the heir lives in Japan, it may be possible to renounce inheritance or approve limited inheritance in a Japanese court.
Therefore, in such cases, we recommend to consult a specialist.
