Before June 30, 2007, the company was Toshiba-EMI. "EMI Music Japan" was established after Toshiba-EMI sold its stake in the Japanese branch of EMI.
On April 1, 2013, Universal Music LLC completed its acquisition of EMI Music Japan. Imports (VJCP catalog numbers) were transferred to the USM Japan division. The rest of EMI Music Japan's primary imprints (Eastworld, Capitol Japan, Virgin Japan) were retired and merged into the new EMI Records Japan division, with subsequent releases bearing only the "Universal Music" and "EMI" logos.
