Good day,

Don't know if the posts are active any longer, but what the hey.

Personally, I do not believe Japan is the best place to invest money in now. I own a couple of Japanese stocks and I am very disappointed in their performance. Maybe this year, Hitachi will turn around.

However, I believe the best companies to invest in are: Fast Retailing (love the store), Muji, and Softbank.

There is indeed great potential in investing in Japan, but I believe the corporate mentality of most Japanese companies date back to the Showa Era and is the major cause of Japan's economic slowdown.

Labor laws are weak and companies are free to do what they want at the expense of their employees.

For the sake of Japan, I hope things will turn around as I believe 2011 will be the year that will dawn a whole new global economy.

Jimmy
