     The fj.* hierarchy can be thought of as the Japanese  version  of
     Usenet.   For  example,  <news:fj.sci.lang> discusses pretty much
     the same kind of topics as <news:sci.lang> but in Japanese.   One
     exception   is  <news:fj.life.in-japan>  which  is  basically  in
     English and deals with topics foreigners may encounter when  liv-
     ing in Japan.

     Apart  from  the  above  groups,  some  other  groups  deal  with
     language,  Japan and Japanese as well.  People interested more in
     linguistics and translation than in Japanese may  find  something
     of       their       liking       in      <news:sci.lang>      or
     <news:sci.lang.translation>.  If you are looking for more culture
     oriented      news,      try      <news:soc.culture.japan>     or
     <news:soc.culture.japan.moderated> if you find the former  a  bit
     too flame infested.

     Some miscellaneous Japan related groups:
     *  <news:comp.research.japan>
     *  <news:alt.japanese.text>
     *  <news:alt.japanese.misc>
