care to translate this for us? what is a "tall price"

from what i can see price in Japanese exchanges are all around $1550 to $1570 (~177,500 JPY ) which is nearly the same as price in USD markets such as coinbase and bitstamp.

many chinaman only know the virtual currency is BTC,and don;t know the ETH or other coin

this is 100% off topic here Smiley
we are talking about bitcoin in Japan and what you said has nothing to do with any of these.

and no they know very well about altcoins and they are a part of pump and dumping the pumpcoins like ethereum.

to OP
someone had a good answer here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1872311.msg18704853#msg18704853

Japan is the tech giant of Asia and it is adapting BTC and other cryptocurrencies in a manner of possible ways. It is a good thing for all the Bitcoiners.
But using BTC for the day to day use is quite complex than we think.

I talked to a friend living in Japan for several years now. She said that there are going crazy about bitcoin. A lot of stores started using bitcoin and owners are like in a friendly competition with each others in terms of gaining customers and of course bitcoin in their wallet. That's crazy. However, when I asked her if she is into bitcoin. she said she's into crypto but not bitcoin. I'm assuming she's into some shitcoin,  :)so I never asked although she said can she can convert it to bitcoin though  Grin. I asked her about the ATM, and she said that's she's getting an ATM card soon.

Bitcoin and crypto currency is slowly starting to buzz in mainstream US news, it isnt big yet but i noticed a few publications focusing on it now.

Was wondering if there was anyone in japan that could give us some idea if the "bitcoin hype" is real? Also, if so have you purchased anything with bitcoin?

Really curious

Bitcoin hype? Isn't it evident that's why they passed a Bitcoin law. They even have it installed in malls and they will soon overtake every country back in using Bitcoins. There is not much buzz in USA who says so? An etf was sent for approval but was rejected had that been approved that would have set usa no 1 users. You don't need to be in Japan to purchase with Bitcoins, you can purchase anything and everything. You can buy vouchers and buy your desired goods. Look in this forum also you can buy yourself goods using Bitcoins.

i believe that site only shows "reachable" nodes. which means only full nodes that are accepting incoming connections from other nodes. otherwise this site can not find them.
and besides many nodes aren't ran 24/7. many people are running it on their PC and you can't just keep it running all day.

Yes, but that situation applies to the whole world. So if in Japan there are 81 full nodes and maybe 80 more full nodes that connect and disconnect some time every day, the same would be probably true for France - so there in addition to the 450 full nodes shown on the page there would be ~450 more nodes than this page says.

It could be interesting to observe if Japan's node count had grown significantly in the last months - maybe before the "good news" it was almost unknown there and is now beginning to get traction. But I didn't find historical information on that page.

I am asking for eye witness accounts of how bitcoin is being implemented there rather than relying on US coin media hype.

Japan is really incredible developing in terms of crypto and digital currencies at the moment.
And it doesn't matter if people buy shitcoins. To get them they mostly have to buy some bitcoin and then convert it. And if they are in to make some money and see how much more volatile shitcoins are compared to Bitcoin, they will move some of their funds back to Bitcoin.
