Officially the company has not announced when or if it plans to launch the service, but staff at its newly opened retail store in the Ginza shopping district in Tokyo have been telling customers the company is currently planning to launch the service ‘in the spring.’”

For me this is great news…not because I live in Japan but because of the previews of music by japanese artists who until now have been away from the iTunes music store library!
