  • Would be great to see this with hyperlinks to the japanese urls, not providing links (and not being able to interpret the urls) devalues the information somewhat.

    Any thoughts?

    It seems Yahoo are really an IT monster in JP. Things so different in China, Yahoo is divorcing with ALibaba China.

    Most of them can't access from here in China, I have to pay 5 USD a month for "FBVPN" (which is the cheapest VPN, I think ) to get my Facebook and youtube back, sign~~

  • Hi
    As for message board, 発言小町(Hatsugen-komachi aims for 30s women, is also slightly huge.
    In fact, it is one of the most time spent site surpassing 2ch or Youtube:)

    Also, モバオク(Moba-Oku is equivalent with Yahoo!Auction in number of user.

    At last, as a review site, 食べログ(Tabe log ) is typical one for restaurant review.
    価格.com doesn't cover that area like Yelp.

  • thanks! Do you have any links for reference to the usage stats?
