Getting started investing in Japan as a foreigner is not intuitive. Not many people are doing it and you won’t find a lot of information on the internet telling you what to do. While I personally use Japanese resources, I hope the following list of English resources helps you better understand and analyze Japanese companies:
- Japan Company Handbook (Toyo Keizai) – about $100.
- Statistical Handbook of Japan (Statistics Bureau, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Japan) – no charge.
- Securities Market in Japan 2016 (Japan Securities Research Institute) – free PDF, about $25 for hard copy.
- Undervalued Japan (Musings on Value Investing and Japanese Investments by O-Tone)
