japan websites are sometimes a time capsule

I will go to japan again later this year and I can’t avoid thinking how much the web hasn’t evolved for many of the japanese websites I saw when I first decided to visit it.

It’s really curious to see that many websites still in a 1980’s look.
It was curious back then, 6 years ago, but now? With all the fast paced growth of the web, layouts and ux improvements, seeing many japan websites retain that old style is sure strange.

I wonder why, maybe there’s a lot of room to grow, or maybe they’re just working (so why fix it in the first place, like craigslist).
Who knows.
