Song Connections/Remixes[]

  • A remix of 祭 JAPAN by K.O.G, titled 祭 JAPAN (FROM NONSTOP MEGAMIX) appears in DDRMAX2 -DanceDanceRevolution 7thMIX- as a CHALLENGE Mode-only playable edit of 祭 JAPAN. This remix was made normally playable in DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME.
  • pop'n music's version of 祭 JAPAN does not requires Japanese chants. This version has its portion to be part of DDR MEGAMIX in the pop'n music game series.


  • In the American and European releases of DanceDanceRevolution, 祭 JAPAN's title is romanized as MATSURI JAPAN.
  • Along with BRE∀K DOWN!, 祭 JAPAN is one of the two ee'MALL DanceDanceRevolution songs that were given brand new keysounds in pop'n music, unlike other crossovers which recycled their beatmania IIDX keysounds.
  • Before pop'n music 15 ADVENTURE, 祭 JAPAN's songwheel genre was 祭 JAPAN (with the exception of pop'n music 13 カーニバル CS).
  • 祭 JAPAN was still present in the location test of DanceDanceRevolution X, with its new foot ratings.
  • While on the DanceDanceRevolution series, 祭 JAPAN was removed from DanceDanceRevolution X onwards, it is still present on the pop'n music series, likely because of the lack of vocals.
  • In DanceDanceRevolution 5thMIX and DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME, 祭 JAPAN was listed as a Dance Maniax song and not a DanceDanceRevolution original song. Only in pop'n music was its correct BEMANI series of origin ever listed.
  • 祭 JAPAN shares ポップン音頭's background.
    • The character, Pop'n All? Stars, and ポップン音頭's background remain unrevised.
