  • Why is his site so small?
  • I'm a casual fan of his, so I decided to make a mini-shrine dedicated to him. (^^) The first song I heard by him was "Susume Namake-mono": on a TV show, he once collaborated with Do As Infinity on the song, and I was really impressed. After I heard his original version, I decided to listen to a few more of his songs. I even bought one of his albums!

    I think his music is pretty nice, so I made a small site for him. (^^) In some ways, his "mini-shrine" is similar to "D.A.I.'s Other Works": I've listed basic information on him, linked to a few of his official and fan websites, and posted a few MP3 samples. The only difference is, I posted a few of his songs for download. =D

  • Where can I buy Kazuyoshi Saito merchandise?
  • There are tons of online stores that sell his merchandise. But I highly recommend YesAsia (their prices are low, their selection is large, and the shipping costs are low for people outside of Asia). You can also try CDJapan, Amazon and iTunes. If you want used items, there's an area in DAIForum called Aisle 3. Be sure to check it out! You can also go to eBay for used merchandise.

  • Where can I download [insert song here]?
  • I highly recommend you buy his CDs. However, you can sample his songs (and download several songs, in low-quality WMA format) on this site.

  • Why don't you have a picture gallery here?
  • I normally don't offer pictures for any artist -- that's because you can usually find something with Google. I also recommend using Google Images. (^^) In fact, if you use Google Images Japan and enter his Japanese name (斉藤和義), you might find a lot more results.

  • Why do you post WMAs on this site?
  • I want people to hear the full songs, because sometimes the MP3 samples don't capture the beauty of the full song.

    But I also want people to buy the actual CDs, which is why:

    1. I will never post every song he's made.
    2. I will never post new songs.
    3. I only post low-quality songs on the site. WMAs sound "less fuzzy" than low-quality MP3s (and I do want you to hear the song as best as possible). Plus WMAs are usually a bit smaller in size, which is why I use this format.
    4. I know people might not have a lot of money, so I mentioned a lot of low-cost shopping methods...including YesAsia and used CD sites (like eBay).
    I buy CDs, and you should too. We need to support these artists; otherwise they won't continue to make music. Amasia Landscape and I-lulu/KATA-KANA might still be active if people bought their music more -- and I'd hate for that to happen to Kazuyoshi Saito and everyone else on this site.
