Single Character Japanese domains - hot or not?
 
I have a bunch of these, some have OVT 100k, some have nice OVT bids, and some neither of much, I guess I just collect them like Pokemon cards :rolleyes:

Take the last one I regged, 禿.jp it means Baldness I think.

Has a crappy OVT, but some bids in the 100 range all to do with hair treatmeant etc..

So what's the general consensus with single character Japanese, are they leaning more to the novelty side, or should I take them a little more seriously?

thoughts appreciated please guys.

Oh yeah worthless, I'll take the 100K ovt ones off your hand for reg fee. :p

Seriously, there is nothing inherently wrong with single character japanese domains. 木、水、高、城、白、黒

Some of them possess meaning standalone and they are easy to remember and type-in. Of course they can have value. Let's see some representative ones and we can comment.

Am I correct in saying that the Chinese used to use single characters an awful lot but switched more to couplets in the 20th century?

As Chinese is a completely different language, Japanese would have been largely unaffected by this move?

Just more fuzziness from our Think Tank?

This might help you get a grip on Chinese Language Development:
