There are many sites for showing the difference between Google's www, www2 & www3, but there seems to be no www2 or www3 for the Japanese version of Google. Does any one know a way around this?

Also if you enter the same term in Japanese to www.google.com you receive a very different result to www.google.co.jp I gather this is due to the different encoding, but does any one know any more about this?

There is no www2 & www3 for google.co.jp as far as I know.

It's not just Japanese...you'll get different results with most of the local Google sites. I find the local SERPs a lot more focused and relevant for the most part.
