The 10 Richest People in Japan and the World

Hello everyone, everything good? How much do you think the richest man in Japan has in his account? To answer this question, we prepared the list of the 10 richest people in Japan. And we will also put some information about the 10 richest people in Japan.

Japan does not have the strength of the USA when it comes to net income, in this regard there is no country that surpasses the powerful United States and its population that has the addiction of capitalism in its blood. But that doesn't mean Japan doesn't have its rich people.

As curiosity is what moves the world, we will give the answer to the question at the beginning of the article and we will at the end of it, compare the richest in Japan with the richest in the world, and also put the list of the 10 richest of the world.

Forbes - Research Source

Forbes – Before going to the list, I will introduce Forbes, from which I based the information. Forbes is a US business and economics magazine. The magazine features original articles and reports on finance, industry, investment and marketing. It also makes and disseminates materials related to technology, communications, science and law and even games.

It is also known for its lists, especially in which it ranks the richest people in the US (known as the Forbes 400) and the world, among others. And it is from your research data that the article was prepared.

The 10 Richest People in Japan and the World

The artigo is still half finished, but we recommend opening it to read the following later:

The richest man in the world

Now as promised let's analyze the two richest in each table. And after we take a look I will put some information about them, but only superficial information and nothing to compromise anyone, after all they are billionaires and tend to watch over their personal safety.

So for starters let's go with the richest man in the world, the guy who founded the giant Amazon and revolutionized e-commerce. The president of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, is the first person with a net worth of more than $$ 150 billion in the three decades that Forbes has tracked the wealthiest Americans.

He owns 16% from the colossal e-commerce Amazon, which he founded in a Seattle garage in 1994. Bezos studied at Princeton and worked at a hedge fund before leaving to sell books online. His other passion is space travel: his aerospace company, Blue Origin, is developing a reusable rocket that Bezos says will carry passengers.

  • AGE: 54
  • SOURCE OF WEALTH:, Self Made
  • RESIDENCE: Seattle, Washington
  • CITIZENSHIP: United States
  • MARITAL STATUS: Separate
  • EDUCATION: Bachelor of Arts/Science, Princeton University

If you were curious about the history and wealth of some of the people mentioned in the list, we recommend the following readings:

The Richest Man in Japan

Masayoshi Son is considered the richest in Japan and he is the CEO of the telecommunications corporation and Internet call SoftBank. The company's annual revenue is US$ 81 billion (2017). Softbank invested $$ 35 billion in 100 deals in 2017, including investments in office leasing company WeWork and company Uber.

In December 2016, at Trump Tower, Son pledged that SoftBank would lead a $$ 50 billion investment in US companies and create 50,000 jobs.
Son's Vision Fund's investors include Apple, chip company Qualcomm, manufacturing company Foxconn and the family office of billionaire Larry Ellison.

The 10 Richest People in Japan and the World

SoftBank acquired Sprint Nextel, a US mobile phone operator, for US$$ 22 billion in 2013.

  • AGE: 61
  • SOURCE OF WEALTH: internet, telecom, Self Made
  • RESIDENCE: Tokyo, Japan
  • EDUCATION: Bachelor of Arts/Science at the University of California, Berkeley

We don't know how long these people's wealth will last or if they will drop in rankings. Until the year 2018 the Amazon giant is still the global leader. And he's about 100 billion dollars ahead of the richest man in Japan. As I said at the beginning of the article, Japan doesn't have the economic strength that the US has.

But that's all for this article. This subject does not bring us benefits, but only kills curiosity, and therefore there is no point in discussing the facts too much. If you have any questions, suggestions, criticism, just leave your comment. Furthermore, thanks to you, my dear reader, for reading this article so far and until the next one.

List of the richest Japanese

To complement the article, let's add a 2015 list showing the 50 richest Japanese in Japan and their heritage. Because it's an outdated list, things can be quite different these days, but it's still useful.
