Me and wife-chan recently opened a savings account at a Japanese bank. Not surprisingly, the interest is nearly 0%. If they would only fire the guy they send every month to pick up the money and use his salary to pay us some interest....
Well, to come to the point, I wonder what your experiences are with saving money in Japan. Australian interest seems to be pretty high. Does anyone here have an Australian yen-savings account or something like that? I prefer to keep the money in yen.
With the crisis dragging on, we'd rather stay out of stocks and bonds.
I'm interested you hear what you're doing, about your good and bad experiences etc. All advice is welcome.
