No, not really...

Having moved to Tokyo for a couple of months, I haven't seen much
of IPv6 stuff here and there. Yes, it's *relatively* a bit better
than the states. Or maybe. Basically they're winded. Quick
googling gives a couple of big Japanese websites, like:

IPv6 section of Atmark-IT (a famous it-related news site in japan)
(the last update is July 2006)

IPv6 style (Portal site for IPv6-related articles)
(as of today, the server is down for some reason)

IPv6 Magazine
(discontinued since 2004)

IPv6 Application Constest
(They are still featuring the last one held in 2005)

This is pathetic.  It's kinda noble that they spent a lot
of money for these technologies that might pay off in several
decades, but I just hope they could be a bit more realistic.
Unfortunately, we are the nation that is very susceptible
to herd psychology since WWII...
