Sad news! Today we received a press release announcing that the digital music store HearJapan.com will cease business in two weeks.
HearJapan.com to close on June 30th
The digital music store for Japanese music, HearJapan, regretfully
announces the closing of HearJapan.com on June 30th. HearJapan
launched a new version of the site in February that was over two years
in the making. Unfortunately, there were many unanticipated costs in
doing this that made HearJapan impossible to manage.
This website will be shut down by June 30th, unless another company
decides to purchase the website.
HearJapan was started in late 2007 as an mp3 download store dedicated
to spreading Japanese music around the world. Until June 30th, users
will still be able to make purchases and download music.
