Investing While in Japan

I wanted to know if any of you are currently investing while in Japan and how you are doing it. I am curious for two reasons: Retirement Short Term investment If you are investing, are you doing it through Japan or through your home country. I plan on staying in Japan, but for lack of understanding, I am thinking if I should start a 401K in America instead. Any advice is appreciated.

Physical therapist/physiotherapist experiences in Japan?

My boyfriend has a herniated disk and has been really struggling with the pain and emotional stress. The regular doctor just sent him home with some pain medication, but it's not really doing it. Have you had any experiences with PT's or physiotherapists in Japan? Was it a good experience? Any recommendations for this condition?

Raincoat recommendations?

I feel like rainy season will be here before we all know it, and was wondering if you have any favorite brands for raincoats. I need a couple for my kids (they've outgrown ones that relatives sent us when they were younger) and to be honest I probably should actually get one for myself, too. Sometimes just an umbrella doesn't cut it! Let me know if you have any favorites!

Sleep remedies

Does anyone know of any good sleep aids or remedies that are easy to find in Japan? Nothing heavy, just over-the-counter stuff, herbal teas, other drinks, that kind of thing.
