Investing in a Japan Index ETF

I like the Ishares MSCI Japan Index (EWJ). It is right at its 52 week high. The ETF 's largest holding is Toyota Motor.
Another ETF that I like is the Ishares Emerging Markets Index (EEM). The Emerging Markets ETF is almost four points off its 52 week high.

Both ETF's have low expense ratios making them more attractive than most mutual funds. I believe that you should have at least 10% of your portfolio in international stocks.
