As you see, the files are mp3. I am not sure how/if you can use them for your cell phone.

JR East Station Jingles CD! 2006/5/24 22:38
Honestly - you can buy a CD of all the station jingles from hmv.co.jp/ The catalogue number is TECD-25522. Ordered mine from UK and it was delivered within 5 days. They make great and unusal ringtones.

There is a Yahoo Widget available with lots of Japan Railway station melodies and announcements:

Those are funny websites. It's quite weird to hear the station jingles that I know well outside the stations!

I checked Koenji hoping they would have the seasonal jingle they put on just for a couple of weeks in August around the time of the Awa Odori festival, but they only had the usual one. About this time of year it changes to Awa Odori music- very distinctive.

Wow - all of these websites are wonderful. I really noticed the chimes when I visited Japan. The widget is awesome.

Great JR Chimes 2008/7/26 11:49
I really like the chimes here. They are all MP3 files and I think some or all are recordings of the actual chimes.
