Yamanote Sounds - CD 2009/3/18 05:27

Hi,

does anybody know this CD?

http://www.amazon.com/JR-Yamanote-Line-Platform-Sounds/...

Are those the "real" tunes as you can hear them on the platforms or are the re-arranged?

Lisa,

I'm not sure that that CD actually includes the station melodies. It primarily seems to be a collection of recorded onboard and platform announcements.

I think this is the CD you are looking for if you want the station melodies.

Thanks 2009/3/20 18:54
Ah thanks! I guess the other CD is the one I want to have. Is there a store where I can buy them in Japan? I never saw them at normal CD places. For what stores do I have to watch out....?

One ekiben shop inside Ueno Station has the CDs and a few other train related goods on sale.

I guess they are also available at other shops where JR East related goods are on sale. Possibly the biggest of them is in the Railway Museum in Omiya.

Never saw those ekiben shops for JR goods yet, but I will look out for them! Ueno is a good adress because I will often pass the station =).
Thanks =)

Johan, there is a link on the right side of the Amazon page (linked in the message above) for translating to English.
