Betamax in Japan

I've scanned this site, but for the purposes of the story I need a specific period and place.

When did Betamax become obsolete in Japan? I get the idea that turnover for technology is faster there, so when did the general public start junking it?

The site gives 1988 as an ending year for the "format wars", and just over three hours as the maximum Betamax taping time. Does this apply to Japan?

Thanks for your help!
