Ask Japan ClosingSome more sad news for the struggling search engine, Ask.com. Ask is closing down Ask Japan, aka Ask.jp on June 25th.

Bill, the moderator of the Asia specific forums at WebmasterWorld explained that Ask.jp is "reorganizing to focus on B2B solutions. Their consumer search will cease operations on June 25." The consumer search product includes Ask.jp.

Google Translate can somewhat translate the statement:

From patronage, Ask.jp We very appreciate your business. This time, ask JEPI Dot Corporation, which specializes in business reorganization and corporate solutions, Services include: Search Ask.jp (www.ask.jp) will close.

[End] Target Service June 25: Ask.jp (web search, blog search, product search, category search)

Ask debuted in Japan in August 2004.
