ABSTRACT
The article discusses the factors contributing to the investment opportunities in Japan. Since its economic downfall in 1990, the country started to recover by being the best-performing major stockmarket between 2004 and 2005. Major companies in the country were major investors in China, thus, they have been considered major beneficiaries of the country's economic growth. The dissolution of the zero interest rate policy and the economic reform policies accounted for its development.
