    Interesting in this too.

    But I actually have rough idea, but I just haven't tested it yet to share it to you.

    Everything basically the same like doing SEO for US market.... but using all Japanese resources. That's all.

    You can use US backlinks to get higher in the ranks but Japanese backlinks are a must.

    They are some active forums about SEO in Japanese but you will need to be fluent to use those guys services although some might speak English.

    Did you optimize your keywords in Japanese ?

    Personally, i've always belivd ds iz a complicated process nd it iz. U nyd links from sites with japanese ip'z, non jap ip'z bt jap domain extensions. Liinks from pages written in japan , or pages with links frm jap sites.

    Also Keep in mind that Yahoo has the largest marketshare of the search engine market in Japan. (it was the case in 2010, I'm not sure about 2011)

    You should focus on Yahoo! Japan and Google Japan.

    What sort of site are you doing SEO for ?

    I guess you could use the same tools as people do in the US. The google keyword tool or softwares like Market Samurai work with Japanese keywords for example.

    You could also submit your sites to web / articles directories:

    Code:
    dir.yahoo.co.jp/Computers_and_Internet/Internet/World_Wide_Web/Searching_the_Web/Web_Directories/

    Code:
    dmoz.org/World/Japanese/%E3%82%B3%E3%83%B3%E3%83%94%E3%83%A5%E3%83%BC%E3%82%BF/%E3%82%A4%E3%83%B3%E3%82%BF%E3%83%BC%E3%83%8D%E3%83%83%E3%83%88/%E6%A4%9C%E7%B4%A2/%E3%83%87%E3%82%A3%E3%83%AC%E3%82%AF%E3%83%88%E3%83%AA/
    
    (I have limited knowledge of Japan specific directories etc... but articles some directories have japanese versions of their site)

    You can also ask your Japanese contact to hire Japanese service providers on local specialized forum.

    Please let me know about your findings on this topic, I live in Japan but only do super white hat stuff at the company I work at. Most of the blackhat stuff I do in the US / Europe but would like to start some things in Japan.

    I'm sure everything is MUCH less saturated in Japan than it is overseas. (for some reasons Japan is not as advanced as one would think when it comes to the Internet)
