Japanese IDN .net & .jp

Looking at registering some Japanese IDNs.

With all the premium .com's taken, I was wondering what are the resell value and type-in traffic for japanese IDN .net's?

Also do Japanese tend to type .jp or .com as the extension? Based on my investigation with Google, I found there are 120million .jp sites while only 14million .com sites in Japanese. So it looks to me .jp is much more popular in Japan.

And which registrars do you guys use for .jp registration?

The cheapest registar for .jp with an English interface is JP-domains. See my signature for the special link. You can get a cheaper registrar over at value domains if you can navigate in Japanese.

There are less than 1 Million dot JP registered total, so I would check your statistics!
