Sony brand DVD+R (made in Japan) = YUDEN media
Sony brand DVD+R (made in Taiwan) = SONY media
Sony brand DVD-R (made in Japan) = TY or SONY media
Fuji brand DVD+R (made in Japan) = YUDEN media
Fuji brand DVD-R (made in Japan) = TY media
Verbatim brand DVD-R (made in Taiwan) = MCC media
Verbatim brand DVD+R (made in Taiwan) = MCC media
Maxell brand DVD-R (made in Japan) = MXL media
Maxell brand DVD+R (made in Japan) = MAXELL media
TDK brand DVD-R (made in Taiwain) = TDK media

Pick one. Best Buy, Staples, Office Depot, Walmart, Fry's and OfficeMax are all fine places to pick up some of these discs. About $15-20 per 50 pack on sale. New sale each week it seems.

I think you need to let people know they may have to search through all of the above retailers stock to find the made in Japan discs.

I've seen Sony, Fuji and Maxell discs that say they are from Taiwan. Something else I forgot to mention, was that I've had several sales people tell me who work at these stores is that they pull the made from Japan discs and substitute the made from Taiwan discs when a sale is going on. Supposedly, they do have to pay more for the made from Japan discs and would rather have the unsuspecting public buy the made from Taiwan discs when a sale is going on. I've found this to be the case more than once when the sale is over than the premium stuff comes back out.

You just have to be careful and check.

I've noticed my local Walmart has had both the Taiwanese and Japanese Maxells on the shelf at the same time, at very different prices.

Frankly, it's cheaper and easier to just order my Taiyo Yuden discs from www.supermediastore.com. I did find some Maxell for $16.00 a 50 pk, but for two of them it was $32.00 + sales tax (8.5% in the great LOSER state of Washington). It would be the same with shipping at supermedia store and I didn't have to burn the gas and time searching. Plus, I know they are from Japan.
