I have been asked to help redesign a suite of web products in Japan, and
though I know something about the language and culture, I know nothing
at all about web use and usability in Japan. Can anyone recommend any
resources for me?

Thanks!

Joan,

Three books:

1.) The culturally customized website
2.) Beyond Borders
3.) International User Interfaces

I've read the first and wrote a summary of it on my blog:

http://jstrande.typepad.com/blog/2006/11/culturally_cust.html

(that post includes links to all three books mentioned above)

Hope this helps.

Jon
