Nice article

Nice little press release or article about a small shop in Tokyo that bought the domain name 俺の店.jp ("my store") for its website. Interestingly, it occured to me that I own the transliteration of "my store" in .jp. Funny. Anyway, this store is in Shimokitazawa near where I used to live by the way - its a very interesting mixed neighborhood of upper middle class couples and college students and thus kind of fashion forward in a sedate way. I see that instead of porting their site to the new URL, they are forwarding instead to their old. But still interesting that this shows up in yahoo news.

Also the JPRS registry for .JP has put out a new flash based game to teach people about Japanese domain names and .JP in particular.

[俺の店] - sounds very brandable -

In Chinese - [俺的店]; [我的店]
In English - [My Store]; [My Shop]

I like it!

That's gotta be good news.

Would putting a download button for it on Japanese domains be a good idea?

Re: Nice article

IDN or not JPRS is doing a good job trying to reach out to the normal internet user to learn about domains.
The average person, artist, student etc still don't know what's the benefit of domains yet.
The media campaigns they have run on Yahoo, & Mixi which target most of Japan.

Only 2 or 3 more months till they reach the 1,000,000 registered domain mark...
