Greetings Global Gains!

Yes, it is good to bring this board back to life as Japan is still the world`s second largest economy! Surely there must be some great opportunities here!

I`ve read economist David Rosenburg say that with the impressive recent economic numbers coming out of Japan, that Japan could be a "sleeper" this year. I`ve also noticed the Japan asset class is moving, after a long time being in the dumps:

Another good post on why Japan might be unfairly ignored by investors and therefore of good value:

Yes, Fast Retailing is a great success story in Japan and I think the owner of this company is now Japan`s richest person. I think that this innovative, very original (for Japan) company shows that Japan can embrace very different types of business approaches. I think Fast Retailing has much ambition for outside of Japan as well. Thanks for the investing idea, I`ll look into it further.

I`m living in Japan and am interested in investing here locally, but haven`t set up an on-line brokerage account yet. I don`t have any information on doing this in Japan, and I would like to speak with other foreigner investors who are living in Japan how they invest here and what their experience is. Maybe we could all meet sometime to discuss investing ideas and strategies here. I live near Tokyo.

All the best and hope to hear from other fellow fools in the land of the rising sun!
