  • Oricon Chart:

As many know now, Oricon Chart no longer counts products shipped overseas from any Japanese store, that’s it, right now Only products shipped locally/inside Japan are counted.

However, there is a way for overseas fans who wish to have their Tohoshinki purchases count in Oricon Chart:

  1. Buy from an online Japanese store that count on Oricon (e.g. like the 1-3 stores listed above, or check more here).
  2. Ship it to a local (Japanese) address.
  3. After it arrives there, ship your item to your oversea address.

How to get a Japanese address?

  1. You could use the help of a friend who lives in Japan, by shipping your purchase to their address then they ship it to yours abroad.
  2. OR You could use Shipments Forwarding Services in Japan such as Tenso or Celga:
    1. They provide you with a local shipping address you can use for any online Japanese stores to ship the desired items locally first.
    2. Next, Tenso/Celga collects it, keeps it for you (see their websites for how long), and this way your purchases can be counted on Oricon.
    3. Lastly, Tenso/Celga ships it to your original address overseas.
      (Read their websites for more information on the procedure, available shipping methods and the handling fees, etc.)
