I have created tutorials for how to buy "Otsukare Thanks" from both Amazon JP and Recochoku.
to view the tutorial for Recochoku.
Here's a summary of both so you can decide which option is better for you.:
Amazon- International credit cards will not work as payment. Those living outside of Japan will need to use an Amazon JP gift card as payment. You will be able to download the song to your computer after purchasing. The song download is in mp3 format with a variable average bit rate of 283 kbps.
Recochoku- Song can be bought through the mobile website or Japanese Nintendo 3DS Recochoku store only. You can not buy on the regular website. International credit cards will work as payment. For Iphone users the song can only be played through the Recochoku plus music player app available only through the Japanese app store so you'll need a Japanese Itunes ID. For android phones, I'm not sure what the process is. The song is downloaded to the app in m4a format in either 128 or 320 kbps.
A VPN needs to be used for purchasing at either stores if you're overseas.
