Great Japanese web design?

over 7 years ago from , Product Designer

We've recently picked up some work from Japan and tried to do a bit of research into what else is in the space. Maybe we're simply looking in the wrong places, but there appears to be a huge disparity between web design in Japan (and perhaps Asia too), and the west/Europe. This is quite fascinating to me, considering their strong history of design culture and practice.

I understand there are contributing factors at play here (e.g. limitations with web typography, different devices, cultural/social differences), but my question (for now) is: has anyone seen any great examples of web design from Japan?
