Very rough skeleton based on what's in this thread. Maybe put all this information onto Bogleheads Wiki eg http://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Investing_in_Japan
(Australian page conspicuously lacking). Just trying to think like a Boglehead, the info that we're really interested in is cost, liquidity, taxation issues, etc.
Books too - there are so many resources out there, but there are a few books and websites which are so good they keep bubbling to the top.
Apologies if this already exists somewhere in one place, and would appreciate your thoughts.
