日本 中心 Translation help

In a sleep deprived stupor in January, I accidentally (yes, accidentally) registered the domains 日本中心.com and 日本中心.net. Now I am culling my portfolio.

In a search for 日本 中心 it seems that this generally means "Japan Center" that one would see on a university campus (e.g. Center for Japanese Studies). Is this correct?

If so, do you see any commercial use or is this a drop candidate? For example, universityname.日本中心.com?

Burns - sleep deprived stupor is right. Unfortunately, it doesn't really apply in the way that you think. It's more like "the center of Japan" or "the middle of Japan" or even "the heart of Japan". It isn't an obviously commercial term which you can see by checking overture bids (none). Also the ovt is dreadfully low (below 1000). Maybe you can sell it to the Japanese nationalists or something. If you can't sell it by renewal time, I'd cut it loose. But then again you never know....

Don't sugarcoat it. Let me know what you really think! :p

At the time, I was looking for some sort of "center/heart of Japan" cultural site for a travel, blog/chat, or marketing/ecommerce site. However, all the searches turn up university web sites. Is it brandable?

I guess we'll see what happens at IE7 intro time....

Re: 日本 中心 Translation help

OK, maybe we should have a Greatest Misses thread so that I am not the only one getting picked on.... C'mon, Bill, it's not THAT bad! It sounds like a tourist souvenir store, though.

OK, I think I'll set it up as a site to sell Japanese fine art prints and pottery. Maybe even tea sets, music, kimonos, or samurai swords.... One sale will cover the reg fees!

I'll invite you over when it is set up. :p

Maybe you can sell it to the 'Japanarama' online store guys. Good luck with it, you never know.

I think it will be far too profitable to sell to someone like that. :p

OK, smarty pants. Post your greatest miss!
