Umm,,, To be correct, Nationwide IXes in Japan are NSPIXP2,
NSPIXP3, JPIX.  NSPIXP3 is located in Osaka.

Yes, is on NSPIXP2 and donated transit
through NSPIXP2 by some ISPs.  It may be called int'l
capacity. :-)

 :| 	And based on what I have been told, both HKIX and 
 :| 	STIX can be called international.  There is a

 :| 	This is false.
Thanks for pointing out.  "international" means just the 
multi-nationality of participant ISPs, right?

 :| 	Both STIX & HKIX have interconnections to ISPs in
 :| 	many other nations but not quite the connectivity back
 :| 	to the US.
I see.
