Do you want to travel to Japan? If so, you should really check out Kim Dao’s latest YouTube video “10 JAPAN TRAVEL HACKS YOU NEED TO KNOW!” In this video, Kim Dao goes over some of the things she wished she knew when she first journeyed to Japan.
The first travel hack Kim Dao goes over has to do with WiFi. She says if you can’t survive a day without the Internet, then you need to buy a Pocket WiFi or SIM Card before visiting Japan.
Kim Dao’s second hack has to do with the JR Pass. People on tourist visas can get JR Passes for $300 per week. This pass allows tourists to take as many JR trains as they want throughout their stay in Japan. Kim says JR Passes are great for people who plan to travel all around Japan. However, people just planning on touring one city like Tokyo shouldn’t invest in one.
Thirdly, Kim Dao talks about the travel website www.odigo.jp. She says Odigo is the perfect travel company for first time travelers. You can literally book your entire trip to Japan on Odigo’s revamped website.
Kim Dao’s fourth tip is all about useful train apps in Japan. She says all you have to do is type in “Japan trains” into the App Store and download an app. You could also just use Google Maps for free.
Related to train apps, Kim Dao next recommends getting a train card. She says you can get these cards at both airports and train stations for 500¥.
The final hacks in this video include withdrawing Japanese money at convenience stores, bringing a powerboard with you, renting a car for travel to rural areas, buying heat packs in the winter, and taking photos of places you want to visit. The last tip is designed to help you ask locals how to get to certain destinations if you can’t speak fluent Japanese.

His story is one of tragedy and triumph. Born in Hungary in 1930, he saw the occupation of the Nazis in his homeland that led to over half a million Jews being killed. This horrible situation developed Soros as a helper of others as oppose to a victim. He and his family assisted others in securing false identity papers to hide their heritage. After the war, Soros left for London to study economics. While there he was influenced by the philosophy of Karl Popper, who expressed the need for freedom of expression and individual rights in a truly productive society. After migrating to the United States and working at a few high powered Wall Street firms, he set up his own hedge fund in the early 1970’s called Soros Fund Management. Now known as the Quantum Fund Endowment, it has over $12 million in investments and has made him a multi-billionaire, one of the richest men in the world.
George Soros continues to apply the principles he learned from the teachings of Karl Popper to this day. Just a few years after starting his company, he created the Open Society Foundations, inspired by Popper’s book “The Open Society and It’s Enemies”. He started out by providing college scholarships for black South African students under the oppression of Apartheid. Soon after, he helped promote critical thinking in parts of Eastern Europe where communism was soon to tumble, providing photocopiers to reprint writings that were once banned in various nations. His willingness to go against the mainstream continues with efforts in the United States and beyond. A critic of the War On Drugs, he became an early advocate for the use of Medical Marijuana. The Open Society Foundations have also made education one of their main causes, assisting in the establishment of after-school programs in New York City and making significant financial contributions to the Russian University system. Read his profile at Forbes.
The basis of George Soros’ charitable work has always been to encourage a free thinking and inclusive society. In recent years, he has been a proponent of same sex marriage and gay rights. Now in his 80’s, he continues to travel and meet with world leaders on behalf of the foundations. After all, a visionary’s work is truly never done.
$1 million was wagered by Warren Buffet in order to help charity to gain better investment returns than with a passive index fund. It is very likely that it will become a gain for Warren Buffet in the near future.
According to Warren Buffet, there are far too many expensive funds that basically rip off investors and investments should instead be bought and held for a long time. Buffet’s approach to investments-bottom-investing, to be exact, has proven to be an effective plan of action in the past.
Consumers need to be aware and even wary of product labels. Many mutual funds offer poor returns in the long-run because of excessive trading and high fees. Low cots are the ticket to get good returns.
Bull markets tend to turn but doing better than the crowd in difficult times is an important component for an investor to grow their nest egg. Index returns are not always the safest type of fund to go with, so consumers need to pick their type of fund very carefully.
