I'll have a look for you. Yes, that would be cool.

Image data acquired by the PRISM onboard the "Daichi"
http://www.jaxa.jp/press/2006/02/20060215_daichi_e.html

"The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) would like to announce that image data was successfully acquired by the Panchromatic Remote-sensing Instrument for Stereo Mapping (PRISM) onboard the Advanced Land Observing Satellite "Daichi," which was launched on January 24, 2006 (Japan Standard Time, JST). The data was acquired as part of the initial functional verification test.

The attached images of Mt. Fuji (Diagram 1) and Shimizu Port in Shizuoka Prefecture (Diagram 2) were both observed by the PRISM at 10:30 a.m. on Feb. 14 (JST), and later received at the Earth Observation Center (in Hatoyama-cho, Hiki-gun, Saitama Pref.)

This sensor can acquire high-resolution three directional 3-D data, marking a world first for an earth observation satellite data."

Image data acquired by the PALSAR onboard the "Daichi"
http://www.jaxa.jp/press/2006/02/20060217_daichi_e.html

"The Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI) and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) would like to announce that image data was successfully acquired by the Phased Array type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR) onboard the Advanced Land Observing Satellite "Daichi".

The attached images of Mt. Fuji and Izu Peninsular (Diagram 1) and Shizuoka City (Diagram 2) were observed by the PALSAR at 10:16 p.m. on Feb. 15 (JST), and later received at the Earth Observation Center (in Hatoyama-cho, Hiki-gun, Saitama Pref.)

The PALSAR is the only satellite that uses onboard phased array type synthetic aperture radar with L-band by which observations are less affected by conditions on the earth's surface. By observing the same location on the earth twice (interference processing), the observation accuracy for the elevation and subsidence on the earth can be as close as a few centimeters."

Image data acquired by the AVNIR-2 onboard the "Daichi"
http://www.jaxa.jp/press/2006/02/20060217_daichi-2_e.html

"The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) would like to announce that image data was successfully acquired by the Advanced Visible and Near Infrared Radiometer type-2 (AVNIR-2) onboard the Advanced Land Observing Satellite "Daichi".

The attached image of the Tanegashima area was observed by the AVNIR-2 at 10:50 a.m. on Feb. 17 (JST), and later received at the Earth Observation Center (in Hatoyama-cho, Hiki-gun, Saitama Pref.)

The Daichi is the only satellite that can perform high resolution observations of one specific area with both light and radio frequency by using both the Advanced Visible and Near Infrared Radiometer type 2 (AVNIR-2) and the Phased Array type L-band Synthetic Aperture Rader (PALSER) simultaneously. Through this ability, it can identify the earth's surface more precisely."

                     ***  JAXA MAIL SERVICE  ***
                 Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency
----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Advanced Land Observing Satellite "Daichi" (ALOS):
      Start of Operations Phase and Data Provision to the Public

                                                October 23, 2006 (JST)
                             Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA)

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) completed the initial
functional verification phase and initial calibration and verification
phase of the Advanced Land Observing Satellite "Daichi" (ALOS) and
will move on to the operations phase tomorrow. The "Daichi" was
launched on January 24, 2006, (Japan Standard Time, JST) from the
Tanegashima Space Center.

Along with the start of the mission operation, observation data
(called "ALOS data") from the "Daichi" will become available to the
public. In Japan, you can receive data from two Japanese
organizations, the Remote Sensing Technology Center of Japan (RESTEC)
and the Earth Remote Sensing Data Analysis Center (ERSDAC) *1, and
some overseas local organizations designated by ALOS node agencies*2
as they are ready to provide data. Some fees are required to receive
the data.

JAXA also started providing data to the Sentinel Asia, which JAXA and
other related organizations are currently establishing as a disaster
management support system in the Asia-Pacific region.

*1 The ERSDAC provides only PALSAR data.

*2 The system to process and provide data in each region by dividing
   the world into four areas.
