"Big in Japan" is the debut single of the German band Alphaville. It is from their 1984 album Forever Young. The title comes from a phrase Big in Japan, which was used to describe Western bands who are popular with Japanese audiences while garnering little attention in their home country.
The single was a great success in many countries, including Switzerland, Germany and Sweden. The song also reached number 1 on Hot Dance Club Play in December 1984.
The video was directed by Yello's Dieter Meier.
