Japanese Comeback Support Page
A domestic (Japanese) chart that calculates the estimated number of sales of music and video software across Japan.
They have a very strict rule of only counting information (sales) within Japan, hence items must be shipped to a Japanese address from a vendor (CD shop) in order to contribute to Oricon charts.
Items that are sent overseas from a CD vendor are not counted towards Oricon charts.

Recochoku is a Japanese music streaming platform, entering the charts will contribute to the Billboard Japan HOT 100.
There are multiple platforms that contribute towards BB Japan, but we have decided Recochoku to be the most feasible for Overseas ATINY to contribute on as:
Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer streaming requires Japanese accounts
LINE MUSIC charts are mostly based on streaming, and it is a rather large platform used by many, hence charting there is not easy, especially with limited manpower.
Recochoku charts are based off downloads, hence ATINY can also create multiple accounts and purchase the song multiple times
