Does Japan sell Marvel or DC comic books?

Im planning on going to Japan sometime next spring or summer and was wondering if there were any Comic Book stores out there that sell Marvel or DC comics?( and yes I know if true they would be in japanese). I tried 'googling it' and nothing came up but I know I can trust that the people of Comic Vine will have an answer for me. 
Thank You.

Yeah they do but Western Comics are not very common, 
 
Japanese will mostly read Japanaese comics but you will find them in a big city like Tokyo and Osaka

yeah, I'm pretty sure they're rare over there. but I do know they have some following, they're making a Wolverine and Iron Man anime series over there.

There was a couple of manga's separate from the USA's Mangaverse in Japan, for Spider-Man, and maybe X-Men.

I would think so seeing as we sell manga.
