Default Is YJA extremely slow for anyone else?

This week, I've noticed that the website for Yahoo Japan Auctions (YJA) loads extremely slowly. What used to load in a second or two now takes minutes.

Has anyone else noticed the same?

Been like that lately for me too, auction images in particular take a bit to load. It seems to come and go though (it's fairly ok atm).

I wonder if they'll fix this at some point, as it's basically unusuable as-is.

Recently I've noticed that images load very slowly (or not at all) on Sunday evenings (Japan time). Sunday evening is also when an above average amount of auctions end (i.e. peak time).

yeah it's really slow
imagine if they had decent sized photos instead of the 300 pixel junk they've been forcing for 20 years! site would not even load text.

I'll need to do some more research but,

While many of the photos there are indeed provided by sellers with crappy camera phones, I think some photos are actually big and good quality - it's just that Yahoo uses HTML code to shrink them and provides no way (that I know of) to enlarge the photo like eBay does.

If you can find a way to get the image's direct URL (e.g. inspect elements or disable JS and right-click copy) then you can view the photos at their natural original size.
