Could it be that the paintjob is not finished yet? The brownish color you see on the picture could be the color of an unpainted fuselage. A picture of a similar 'gold paintsheme' on a Thai A340-600 was shown on this site a couple days ago.

I agree with Dazeflight; it's a special livery.
Mind you, this is one airline that definitely needs a new livery; it isn't bad, but it's been around for 23 years now (since the launch of the 767) and JAL has been through two livery changes this then, and most Asian competitors through at least one. It is getting a bit tired.
I know they've changed their livery very slightly, but changing to "ANA", but I don't really count that as a livery change.

It is amazing!
Well done ANA. ANA is always such a class act... You really have to take your hat off to Japanese airlines for doing a job. Now there is a brand I'd love to see franchised to short haul domestic service right around the world, and this 737 would be just the aircraft to do it!
BTW folks... its definately a special scheme... that gold isn't a primer because boeing don't use the same stuff Airbus do, plus the winglets wouldn't also be that colour if that were the case. It would be an off green or yellowish mustered colour if it were what you guys are thinking of.
Some rows will be convertible to premium economy configuration, depending on demand (as has been done by some European airlines), on the international routes. Nagoya-Taipei will be the first such route.
