I am totally impressed by:
Not only do these sites have Japanese IDNs but also the pathnames are written in Japanese. Try navigating round the sites and you will see what I mean. So the whole URL is internationalized and not just the Domain Name.

Here are a couple of examples:

http://ロサンゼルス.jp/カテゴリー/ショッピング which I translate as

http://ニューヨークシティ.jp/カテゴリー/レストラン which I translate as
http://New York
