I stumbled on this by random chance when browsing my web server's error logs.

http://www40.atwiki.jp/daphne/

Google Chrome translated it for me. It looks like just an emulation fan site, but it would sure be nice to be able to talk to the admin of the site and see if there's any kind of Japanese community that likes laserdisc games.

very cool! It's hard to get any info from Japan about laserdisc games. This is a great lead!

That is really cool. I don't know if you have tried yet, but i thought I would encourage you to write the contact address. An astonishing number of Japanese people are proficient in English. I have contacted a "Japanese only" site in the past, on the off chance they spoke English, and was given a response by someone who had English skills well beyond my own. :-) You never know.

As for LD audience size in Japan... I don't know how it is for games, but for movies it is still pretty hardcore. If I recall my news correctly, Japan was the last country to have full size LDs in retail outlets. And they held on YEARS after they were gone here.
