I am a native Japanese speaker and English is my second language. One of the advantages I have is to read English and Japanese blogs. This guy in his 40’s has been retired for some years. His latest portfolio and expected annual dividend income is written here.
For those who cannot read Japanese, here is a breakdown of his assets and expected income「JPY].

As you can see, he is a winner. With JPY 5M income, his retirement life should be comfortable.
The most impressive component of his portfolio is Forex. His JPY 6M investment generates 1M annual swap income and now it has JPY 1M unrealized profits. Geneus! I cannot do the same thing.
