This isn't "my stuff", but I think it's pretty cool. Ringohan has been sending these out to it's members to celebrate the end of Summer/beginning of Autumn.



Speaking of Ringohan, has anyone tried joining from overseas while using a Japanese mailbox forwarding service? I'm curious to know how many mailings they send out per year, and how much it ends up costing after the forwarding service fees.

I love the artwork on that. It would fantastic to get that as a decent sized print.

Maybe I should get one on auction, remove and flatten the paper then scan it?

Has anyone here ever looked for Ringo stuff in Japan? Are there any specific places that are good for finding... well, good stuff? I mean, obviously a music store... but you know.

Book-off is your friend. It's a used bookseller, but it also has CDs/DVDs. There is no central store, so you just have to luck out with what you find, but there are tons of them everywhere. Especially if you to to the ones in Tokyo, you have a high chance of finding Ringo stuff.
I found magazines featuring Ringo, Ringo BOOK, MoRA boxset, HF Premium box set, and they also had concert DVDs/Bluray that I did not buy. And they are most likely cheaper than retail price because they are used, but everything I bought was in tip-top condition.
If you are looking for newer stuff, go for Tower Records, since they usually have posters for the new releases. Any major electronic store will have a music/DVD section.

I will say though that in the beginning it was a bit difficult for me to navigate, and I was already at a conversational Japanese level. So there's that.

^^ Thanks, TurtleFu. I will definitely check out my local Book-off when I am in Japan. I probably wouldn't have looked for music related things there otherwise, so I'll update this thread if I get my hands on my findings! Tower Records will also be on my list.

I don't have a picture with me but I recently bought a new copy of KZK. It's one of the re-issued 2008 ones.

I'm surprised to see Hatsuiki Status in first-press there.
