Apple's Q1 2014 earnings are out, and an early highlight on the conference call was talk of how well iPhone has been doing in Japan. Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer cited the new partnership with NTT Docomo, along with continuing strong relationships with KDDI and Softbank for the strong growth iPhone showed in the country.

Better yet; Oppenheimer also declared that iPhone accounts for 69% of all smartphones in Japan. With domestic giants like Sony around, that's a pretty amazing figure for Apple.
