Thanks for the links. I'll read through them. I'm a n00b when it comes doing my own webpage design so ontop of understanding the details of making a Japanese/English BB, I need to design the basic homepage too.
The site will be for family & friends --- kind of like not using Yahoo Groups & not having to send out too much E-Mails to family/friends that is of the one-to-many kind.
So, what part of Japan (culture, travel, cuisine, etc) are you interested?
