Oricon lists the shops according to the Japanese syllables. Therefore, the “A” sound here actually refers to the sounds of A, E, I, O, and U as enunciated in Japanese. Similarly, for consonant plus the vowel “A,” it also encompasses sounds like “KA,” “KE,” “KI,” and so on, as pronounced in Japanese. It’s important to note that the “KA” sound can also represent the “GA” sound and is applicable to other voiceless, voiced, or semi-voiced sounds or contracted sounds in the language.
- All of the stores listed here can be found on Oricon’s page here.
- The stores here are checked by me, but there could be names that are incorrect, though I am confident that most of them are the right ones.
- 堂 is read as “dou” but there are stores with official translation like Shinseido that spells it as “do”, for those without official translated names, I have decided to remain them as “dou”.
- 楽器 or read as “gakki” is translated to musical instrument, but I have decided to maintain the Japanese word
- 店 can be read as “ten” or “mise” in Japanese, but I decided to leave it as “store”
- 書店 is read as “shoten” in Japanese which means bookstore, for most I have left them as “Bookstore”
- If you happen to find the official reading or name of stores that I have mistakenly written below, please let me know and I shall make the correction.
