・Region codes are specific codes embedded in DVDs and Blu-ray discs to limit the regions in which they can be played.
Region codes are set on both media and playback devices, and must match for the media to be played.
・DVDs or Blu-ray discs intended for sale in the Japanese market can only be played on Japanese (or region-free) playback devices.
・In general, DVDs for the Japanese market are encoded as Region 2, while Blu-ray disks are encoded as Region A.
・Common systems used in Japan are Region A for Blu-rays and Region 2 for DVDs.
Even if the region codes match, the broadcast system has to be NTSC/PAL to play the discs.
Analog TV encoding systems are NTSC, PAL, and SECAM, among which NTSC is the standard in Japan.
Please make sure that your DVD/Blu-ray players are compatible with the discs you are going to purchase.
