Japan Tsunami brings huge payday to veteran Domainer

Sendai in Japan is known as the City of Trees.

The devastation in Japan after the 8.9 magnitude quake is quite unfortunate.

Thousands of people have lost their livelihood in the greater area of Sendai, not from the quake itself but from the catastrophic tsunami that followed.

According to Wikipedia, the city of Sendai is the capital city of Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, and the largest city in the Tōhoku Region. The city has a population of one million. Sendai was founded in 1600 and is well known by its nickname, the City of Trees.

Through this ongoing catastrophe there is a small positive element: Sendai has become a highly searched keyword overnight.

The lucky holder of Sendai.com is no other than veteran domainer Satoshi Shimoshita, known as “toho” on DNForum and DomainState.

We had the pleasure of engaging in domain transactions with Satoshi since before 2003; Satoshi travels to Vietnam often but he’s based in Tokyo, Japan. Satoshi is a great, professional domainer with years of experience in domaining.

Satoshi’s domain Sendai.com is most likely getting an onslaught of traffic, which should be converting rather nicely.

The devastation in the city of Sendai is heart-wrenching and we hope Satoshi Shimoshita and his family are safe.
