For overseas fans :
I got in touch with Oricon Service about the research process how they count alubum purchases on Oricon Daily/Weekly Ranking.
Here are the answer from Oricon
1/ Survey : CD/Album/DVD sold for Domestic market
at the stores designated by Oricon
( Lists: https://www.oricon.co.jp/rank/about/)
2/ Survey does not take into account of those directly
sent to the overseas because they only focus on the sales
ranking in the domestic market.
Therefore, you need an address in Japan so that you can specify where you receive your albums once in Japan, and upon receipt they will take care of delivery to your home in the overseas.
Tenso offers exactly this service for you.
