1830m (Sen Happyaku Sanjū Mētoru, "One Thousand Eight Hundred Thirty Meters") is the 4th album by the Japanese female idol group AKB48. It is a double-album release and was released in Japan on August 15, 2012[1][2] by King Records. It sold 1,051,000 copies.[3]

Album information[edit]

The title "1830m" implies the distance from AKB48 Theater in Akihabara to Tokyo Dome,[4] an indoor baseball stadium with over-50,000 capacity where AKB48 had performed for the first time, for 3 days from August 24 to 26, 2012. It is released in two editions, a regular edition coming in a special box with a 48-page photobook, a bonus DVD and a random photo, while the theater edition comes with 14 alternate covers, a handshake event ticket and a photo of an AKB48/SKE48/NMB48/HKT48 member chosen at random. This is also the last album to feature Team A member Atsuko Maeda.

Reception[edit]

The album debuted at number one in the Oricon weekly album charts. In August 2012, the album was certified Million by the Recording Industry Association of Japan.[5]
