Japanese Website


I have purchased 2 of Sitepoints books, ‘Deliver First Class Websites’ and ‘Build your Own Website The Right Way’ - and find them both a great read.

I work for an on-line Hotel reservation company and they have announced they are to revamp/rebuild their aging Japanese website to bring it up to date with the aim of increasing revenue in this market space.

Are you able recommend any books or other source that will help in the data capture, design and development of Japanese websites (i.e. double bye character set, Japanese colour schemes, web layout for Japanese market, backend infrastructure, e-commerce, payment gateways etc.)

Any help you can provide would be truly appreciated.

Kind regards,
