Annotation

Warner Music Japan Inc. was created in 1991, when it served two purposes:

  • the distributor for all of the Warner Music operations in Japan, which included this Warner Music Japan division, the WEA Music K.K. division, and MMG Inc.
  • the sound copyright holder of the Warner Music Japan division and later the WEA Music K.K. division. (MMG Inc. held the copyrights for its own labels.)

This is generally not a release label until approximately 2002. In the first 2 years of operation, Warner Music Japan continued using existing non-Japanese labels from Warner Pioneer Corporation as their own domestic labels - so labels like Warner Bros., Reprise, wea were used for both Japanese domestic artists and international music.

At some point in the mid-2000's, the vast majority of these labels were retired and most Japanese domestic releases appeared under "WARNER MUSIC JAPAN". Currently, Warner Music Japan does not operate many sublabels - the notable ones include:
