TVXQ snagged four awards at Japan’s 29th Golden Disc Award, a rare achievement in Japan for a Korean pop group, the awards committee announced Monday.

The duo -- Changmin and Yunho -- scooped up the Best Asian Artist award and the Album of the Year with its third full-length album, “TREE,” released in March last year. The album also topped Japan’s Oricon Monthly Chart.

The video for the group’s live concert tour, titled “TVXQ LIVE TOUR 2014~TREE~,” earned the duo an award for Best Music Video.

Two Best 3 Album awards also went to TVXQ, which released its fourth studio album, “WITH,” last December, making the duo the first foreign band to land four albums on the Oricon Weekly Albums Chart.

Hosted by the Recording Industry Association of Japan, the Japanese Golden Disc Award has honored musicians who have contributed to the development of the J-pop industry since 1987. Nominees are selected based on digital albums and CDs, and video sales.

Last year, TVXQ received five prizes -- Best Asian Artist, Best Album of the Year, Best 3 Album, Best Download Song of the Year and Best Music Video awards.

The boys are currently touring Japan for the “LIVE TOUR 2015 ~WITH~,” with stops in five cities including Osaka, where they will hold shows on March 14 and 15 and from 17-19.
