Greetings,Those are good question and I`m sorry I can`t answer any of them as I have similiar questions myself. Seems like this discussion board is pretty dead, much to my surprise. Hopefully it will become more lively with those interested in investing who live in Japan.I`m living in the Toyama region. I would be interested in forming an investment club. The investment world in Japan seems pretty opague to me and from my discussions with people here, no one seems to invest their money in stocks or other investments. They just seem to keep it all in the bank and seem highly risk adverse. I`ve never met one Japanese person who buys stocks and is an active and knowledgeable individual investor. Yet I`m sure they exist out there as there is a lot of on-line trading activity here and the stock market is the second biggest in the world. So lets get the ball rolling and discuss some ideas about investing while in Japan. I`m originally from Canada, so I have different tax issues than you. But other than that, it would be good to try to find out about getting started here, preferably in English. Sometimes the market here swings very low and it becomes a good buying opportunity. It was down to 11,000 not all that long ago. But I hear one needs to be nimble in the Japanese market as there is a lot of ups and downs and not a continue march upwards.Please feel free to share your thoughts and any information/insights to the topics at hand.Regards,Tak
