I hear that many Japanese now are avoiding chinese food because of all the contamination problems China has. It's irrational, but this is the way Japan works. On the other hand, if a Korean company launched a search engine, the public may be open to it, given the recent Japanese embrace of Korean things.

I don't think Baidu is serious on baidu.jp. More like a PR stunt.

Food from China is not clean until tested. The vegetables singapore imports from china is tested almost every batch. I heard there are rejects by container loads every week. They will have to lop off a few more heads from the food supply and control departments before things can get better.
