Japan music chart

One way check out the latest hot musics in Japanese music industry is by looking at their music charts. When speaking about Japanese music charts, the first thing that comes to mind will definitely is the Oricon. But there is more other charts that worth checking out too that I introduce in this post.

Oricon Style

I visit Oricon Style regularly. The ranking is based on the sales of the singles/album. Sorted by daily, weekly, and monthly, Oricon itself is already sufficient to check out the latest hit music. English version can be found at ThePPN.
