Why does everyone assume this?  His name is Japanese, his race likely, but there is no reason to assume that his nationality is still Japanese even if it ever was.  He is a very private person, with a much higher than average proficiency at English.  Maybe Bitcoin isn't big in Japan because Satoshi doesn't care about Japan?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Still, it would be nice if the bitcoin website had a japanese translation.

I put up the Japanese Language website at www.bitcoin.co.jp

The Japanese Language Forum is here: http://bitcoin.co.jp/forum/index.php

I would love to get some people to help contribute content.
Any takers?

Kiba...?  anyone....?

Bitcoin should be popular in japan.  and it's got nothing to do with Satoshi.

it should be popular because the japanese are always at the bleeding edge of tech.  especially phone (Bitcoin for android...) tech.

I think that because they are on the edge of technology, they actually have several more realized alternatives. In the long run, bitcoin is a better system. In the short run, they have simpler methods of doing similar things. Like simple bank account to bank account transfers, and phone payment systems. I think bitcoin will beat these alternatives, but only when more fully formed.

Support the bitcoin economy, what do you do?

agreed.  although we may not see quite eye-to-eye on the definition of "long term".

i think Bitcoin for Android is going to make rapid inroads in the payment landscape.
