5 Familiar Theme Songs and Jingles in Japan

What’s up people? It’ Mr. Wada back on duty.

Are you familiar with theme songs and jingles in Japan, from TV/radio commercials, etc? Come to think of it, many companies have their own theme songs here! Anywhere you go you hear them and you end up get sick of them, but unforgettable still. Let me share some that I know of.


Theme Songs and Jingles in Japan

Don Quixote (ドンキホーテ)

We just call it Donki. It’s a huge chain store which sells…pretty much everything, very often a hangout for young people.

This song’s always being played in the store.


Yamada Denki

One of the biggest electronic stores. Generally speaking this got the best deals in town.


Bic Camera

Another big electronic store. I used to see its TV commercial a lot in childhood.


EXTRA (Local Business)


A discount supermarket in Chugoku region including Okayama. This song really is an earworm….so bad.

Soja Tire

It’s a store for car stuff in Soja City, Okayama Prefecture. This TV commercial has been on TV for years since I was small. Sorta implanted into my brain already. Actually it sounds cool. Hehe.

    Of the five, I’d have to say the Bic Camera song wins. Although I dislike child actors in general and think they should be banned, the saxophone solo makes up for it.

    As for commercials here, most are annoying in the extreme. I do however fondly recall a local ad from my adolescence. One of my schoolmates memorized the song and used to sing it to us for kicks.
