Arashi's 'Japonism' album hits million sales mark

Arashi's latest album 'Japonism' (released in October 2015) sold 3,513 copies during the week, and its cumulative sales has now reached a million copies, 1,001,000 copies to be exact.

This marks the group's 3rd million-selling album after 'All the BEST! 1999-2009' (released in August 2009, 1,961,000 copies) and 'Boku no Miteiru Fuukei' (released in August 2010, 1,132,000 copies).

This is also the first time in 3 years and 7 months for a male artist or group to achieve a million-selling album since it was last accomplished by Mr.Children with 'Mr.Children 2001-2005?micro?' back in June 2012.

With the concept of "looking at Japan from various angles", 'Japonism' is an album that contains "novelty" which grafts traditional Japanese musical instruments on digital with Arashi's basic "pop music." 

It also topped Oricon's yearly album ranking.
