Last Thursday Christian, Fridtjof, and Matthias left on a trip to Asia. They met the Jimdo Team in Shanghai, China and landed in Tokyo on Monday.
To see what they've been up to, take a look at the site that they've been "lifestreaming" with Twitter updates and lots of photos. It's a mix of German and English, but the pictures are worth more than a thousand words!
But that's not the big announcement today, this is:
The launch took place today at a joint press conference with our Japanese partner KDDI Web Communications. KDDI Web Communications is a subsidiary of the second largest telecommunications company in Japan, and they've put together a great team in Tokyo that's going to take care of all the new Japanese users. Here's a big thank you to all the work that the Japan Jimdo team has done preparing for the launch. You guys are great!
We're really excited here about unveiling Jimdo in Japan and we're really looking forward to see how the Japanese users like it. Here's something fun -- "Japanese for Jimdonauts":
Pronounced like this: Subete no hito ni home page o. It's Japanese for "Pages to the People!" :)
One final treat before we wrap up this post -- here's an awesome video that the Jimdo team in Japan put together. Three cheers for Jimdo!
All the best from Hamburg and Tokyo :D
