Lack of Use of Domain Names in Japan
 
Seems people in Japan don't use domains a lot in their advertising... flyers, notices, billboards, vehicles, etc.

When I look for domains in Japan (Google Streetview, Images, etc.) I see a few .co.jp addresses, and a .com now and then. But no IDNs.

Sometimes, they refer to Facebook or just phone numbers.

Am I not just looking in the right places, or is it true that they just aren't as domain savvy as we are in the U.S. or other countries?

Re: Lack of Use of Domain Names in Japan
 
Years ago when I saw ads in Japan they would often have a Yahoo search box at the bottom of the ad and direct people as to what to search for in the box. It seems ridiculous as your competitors can just advertise for the keywords you are using and appear above the advertiser in the search results. Not sure if things have changed as I haven't been there for years.
