I came across an article today that gave a bit more info about Ask Jeeves Japan:
Ask Jeeves Japan expects Ask.jp will officially launch in the first quarter of 2005, when it will add paid listings.
So we may see AdWords from Google Japan, but AJ Japan is open to work with another partner. This might be an opening for LISTOP [webmasterworld.com], the new Japanese PPC venture formed by the FindWhat & Mitsui tie-up. I guess we'll have to wait a bit to find out though.
