Knowledge is power. Habits create reality. Money grants freedom.
I believe everyone should have control of their financial life. Money should support your lifestyle and goals. It should not be a source of worry and stress.
Are you a resident of Japan? Are you thinking about saving and investing for retirement? Then this site is for you.
It's hard enough to learn about personal finance in English, let alone in Japanese. That's why so many people give up or allow financial 'advisors' to take advantage of them.
Here you will find information about tax-advantaged accounts like NISA and iDeCo, advice on saving and investing, and thoughts on how to live a richer life while preparing for the future. Look at hands-off investing with a robo-advisor, sign up for weekly updates using the form below, check out the blog or get the blog RSS feed, or ask a question in the forum.
If you have a bit more time visit the Further Reading page to find a curated list of blogs and books.
Please feel free to get in touch via the contact form if you have any questions. We're here to help.
