List of JPop record labels in YouTube

JPop music has spread all over YouTube lately. As the Japanese music industry is the second biggest in the world behind United States, Japan has a strong appeal when it comes to media and its music market. Yet is not fully opened to the rest of the world, as many artists/record labels don’t see it like a priority to work with foreign companies such as Spotify, Google Play Music, Deezer and even YouTube.

However the latter has been getting a bigger spot and influence in the JPop culture as  many record labels/TV music channels have started to make their own official YouTube channel where they can promote JPop in a wider range that can reach western countries and not just Japan and East Asia lands.

Here is a list with the most relevant Japanese record labels/TV music channels with their YouTube channels.
