For over 30 years we have been the world's primary source for music from Japan, Okinawa, and other East Asian countries. On this web site you will find our recommended selection of over 8000 CDs vinyl LPs, DVDs, Blu-Ray and tapes too. You can watch videos, listen to sound samples of hundreds of titles and read articles about many artists featured in the Artist Explorer sections. Nearly all our products are imported directly from Japan and Far East Asia, and are often unavailable anywhere else outside of Asia. We have access to nearly everything released in Japan, and many titles released throughout Asia so please ask us if you don't see what you're looking for. If you need advice or recommendations we are always happy to help. Our catalogue is mostly divided by country and musical genre to allow easy browsing if you are interested in a particular type of music. In addition we release music on our own label, manage several Japanese and other Asian artists, book live concerts and tours, export and license music into Japan, are consultants to Japanese record companies in Europe, broadcast Far Side Radio, film video content, dj at events, produce records and coordinate recording sessions. Read the Other Services section for more details. Music from East Asia is probably the least represented in the west, our aim is to make the best music from the region available worldwide.
