Columbia Music Entertainment tyo|6791 is a Japanese record label founded in 1910 as the Nipponophone Company Co., Ltd. (Nippon Phonograph Company). It affiliated itself with the Columbia Graphophone Company of the United Kingdom and adopted the standard UK Columbia trademarks in 1931. It changed its name in 1946 to Nippon Columbia Company Limited and adopted its present name in 2002. Outside Japan, the company operates as the Savoy Label Group which releases recordings on the SLG, Savoy Jazz and Denon labels. It also manufactured electronic products under the Denon brand name until 2001.

Aside from common historical roots, the current Columbia Music Entertainment label has no direct relation with either the American Columbia Records (part of the Sony BMG group in the United States and operates in Japan as Sony Records) or the British EMI group, of which the original Columbia Graphophone Co. was a part. The label is notable, however, for continuing to use the historical "Magic Notes" logo, which has been associated with the Columbia name since the label's founding.
