Still on time right now although the launch date might be affected by a yet to form typhoon forecasted to hit the area.

View from the Tanegashima webcam a few minutes ago - horribly overexposed, but you can just make out H-IIA F39 on Pad 1, in the far right of the image.

And here's William's launch article:

Quote
Japan has not announced whether the Radar 6 satellite on Tuesday’s launch is a fifth second-generation spacecraft, or the first third-generation radar mission.

Q1. Are there any document-sleuthing or amateur satellite observing methods that could answer this question?

Q2. Will this launch use the 4S payload fairing?

Slightly better view from the webcam - hard to say for sure given the quality, but looks like a 4S.

For Q2, it was indeed the 4S fairing being used - check out the photos from people on site on my Twitter account.
