I am quite fond of Japanese memorabilia. They seem to create such interesting curios, with immaculate attention to detail, e. g., Japanese mini LP replica CDs, Obi strips, etc. I do not know the language, but the characters are lovely and look nice on posters and record sleeves.
Presented here are scans of a selection of Beatles-related Japanese publications. The first two pics of John are from a New Music Magazine feature on Bob Gruen's photographs, so it also features other prominent musicians like David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Mick Jagger. The next three are from a Japanese program for the Imagine: John Lennon documentary, including a copy of the ticket and a receipt. The rest of the photos are some excellent shots from Wings' May 24, 1976, concert at Madison Square Garden during the "Wings Over America" tour.
