Is Japan an expensive place to eat?  It certainly can be!  Japan has a reputation for notoriously high prices, but in my experience it doesn't have to be that way!  You can definitely eat affordably in Japan if you're willing to try out a few new things. Delicious food is abundant in the country, and it comes in all different price points... ...

In Part 1 of our Japan Trip Report I showed where we're staying for a big chunk of this month-long Japan adventure.  We aren't just staying in one spot however -- We're taking lots of mini-trips to different parts of the country! The first of these mini-trips was scheduled two days after we landed in Japan.  It was a 2-day trip to a small town in Wakayama Prefecture, called Katsuura. ...

September was another extremely busy month for the Tako family.  Not only were we trying to get everything done before our big trip to Japan, but I took on some additional guest post writing in September. I wrote these guest posts completely for free, because I like the people and the blogs involved.  A little extra exposure for Mr. Tako Escapes never hurts either! ...

Readers of this blog are well aware that I'm comfortable investing in all sorts of different assets -- index funds, bonds, preferred shares, and even common stocks when it makes sense to do so. Generally speaking, if I'm going to invest in individual assets there must be a significant advantage to putting money into those individual investments versus a good ole index fund... ...

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a guest post called The Magic Dividend Cocktail for DividendGrowthInvestor.  If you're at all interested in dividend growth investing, you might want to check-out that guest post!  It was a fun one to write... ...

Around this time last year, I wrote a rant about mobile phones.  It's now one year later, and I think it's high-time I did a little more ranting. Let me begin by saying this:  Mobile phones are giant money black-holes.  Even financially intelligent people who can otherwise save money, seem to have a giant weakness for mobile phones and fancy mobile services... ...

Are financial independence bloggers like Mr. 1500, Root Of Good, Jim Collins, Millennial Revolution, or Mr. Money Mustache special snowflakes?  Did they make millions with special investing abilities impossible for the average Joe down the street to replicate?   Or, did they have super-high income jobs before they were famous bloggers? ...
