Database of Free Japanese Directories

The following list is just a small sample of all the free directories available in Japan. Some of them automatically register you, some will check the website first.

The top-level domain is indicated (loosely defined as including the second level domain for Japanese domains. I consider any top-level domain ending in .jp better than others for Japanese SEO, and .co.jp, .ne.jp and .or.jp better than simple .jp.

The Google PageRank and IP address (as of this compiling) are also shown (except for newer entries). I try not to include directories on the same servers as other directories. A Google PageRank of 0 means Google has given the page the lowest possible PageRank; a hyphen indicates that Google has not (yet) given the page a PageRank number. The PageRank here is the so-called Toolbar PageRank.
