Yahoo! Japan introduced an English version of Yahoo! Japan Auctions on October 10th, 2008. Its target audience is foreign residents in Japan who can communicate in basic Japanese but prefer to use an English interface.
Yahoo! Japan Auctions is the biggest Internet auction site in Japan.
The major drawback of the English site is that only items whose sellers have checked the ‘display on English site’ option are shown. Currently, only a few items are shown on the English site. Also, it is not possible to sell an item through the English site at the moment.
The English version of Yahoo! Japan Auctions is the opposite of Sekaimon [JP], a Japanese version of eBay.
[Updated] Yahoo! Japan made a quick decision to shut down the English version just after half an year. Release [J]
