GCOM-W launch is planned for November 1st 2011. Launch of GCOM-W2 as mentioned in another thread is early 2016. GCOM-C is planned to be ready around summer 2014.

As hinted on the JAXA page, Astro-G has run into some problems. No launch before 2013.

Thanks for the updates!

Because of some reports about Japans moon plans I think we can include Selene-2 for 2015.

JAXA as of 9 June 2010 reports that the "launch day of the H-IIA Launch Vehicle No. 18 with the first Quasi-Zenith Satellite "MICHIBIKI" onboard was set between 10:54 p.m. and 11:54 p.m. on August 2 (Mon., Japan Standard Time.)"

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) decided to postpone the launch of the first Quasi-Zenith Satellite “MICHIBIKI” by the H-IIA Launch Vehicle No. 18 (H-IIA F18) from the Tanegashima Space Center, which was originally scheduled for August 2, 2010.

The new launch date will be announced as soon as it is determined.

(Reason for launch delay)
JAXA found a potential concern in the onboard reaction wheels of the MICHIBIKI following notification from an overseas manufacturer. It may take some time to clear up the potential concern for the manufacturer by assessing test data. Therefore, we determined that it is better to replace the parts with new ones in order to be able to launch the MICHIBIKI as soon as possible while securing the quality and reliability of the satellite.

The Hayabusa 2 mission would blast off as soon as 2014 and reach a carbon-rich asteroid in 2018 for a touch-and-go approach to collect samples. After spending a few months in the vicinity of the asteroid, the probe would return to Earth in 2020.

According to the Japanese wikipedia the launch schedule for 2014 is.
GCOM-C
HTV
ALOS-3
Hayabusa 2
IGS Optical

and there is also Himawari 8 from the Japan Meteorological Agency.
http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/JAXA
If I remember it correct MHI can produce 5 rockets each fiscal year.  So if GCOM-C and ALOS-3 are launched together 2014 the H-IIA/B is already full. Selene-2 for 2014 is unlikely.
