    Anyone give YOHIO a shot?

    He isn't actually Japanese, but his Japanese music and non-Japanese music is pretty awesome! I love visual kei groups (well, the ones that have both the look AND the sound. ).

    I absolutely love Japanese music.

    It all started when I had stumbled across an artist named Utada Hikaru. Her music had so much emotion and beauty in it, that even though I couldn't understand what she was saying, I was still captivated by her. I've been following her ever since. I hope that one day she will do...

    Listening to music I don't understand the words

    to helps me focus on the music rather than the singing, which I prefer. When someone sings it tells the the story of the music, if you don't understand the story. You can make your own.

    Like Finding A Treasure

    I have gone through just about every genre of music in my life, and when I find something new that really speaks to me it is a wonderful gift. I saw the movie Kill Bill for the first time a few months ago and loved the music so much that I got right into the J music thing. I've...

    J-music

    From Dir En Grey to The Brillant Green, Jinn to the Gazette, I personally cannot get enough of Japanese music. Although, I can't understand most of what their saying it gives off this unsual familiar feeling. It's like you can understand it even if you don't. Call me a weebo, I...

    Well, Maybe Not "love", But...

    I do like Japanese music. Really, though, it's just a few songs used for anime openings, the last eight or so Super Sentai themes, and the many different versions of "Double Action" from Kamen Rider Den-O. Well, that, and the occasional shakuhachi tune if I need...

    Visual Kei

    Ten to fifteen year behind the world, I still fawn over younger Yoshikis and hides. The beginnings of Malice Mizer and Luna Sea, the originals, and the best. Though intrest has begun to sway, friends of mine have indroduced me to Yui and Arashi, and I was hooked.

    I think traditional Japanese music is very

    peaceful. Just the sounds are so cool, and I'd love to listen to live traditional performances.

    With Or Without Words?

     I love the old time koto or shakuhachi or sharumela music.  As they become more westernized their songs seem less Japanese but maybe that's just the purist in me?

    BoA

    BoA is one of the most popular Japanese singers in America. Since InuYasha came out, more and more people have been listening to BoA and other Japanese pop singers. I recomend the song Number One to be listened to. I love that song by her.   Mitsuru

    find, it frustrates me to no end though how little of it is available for purchase on iTunes. If you really want it it seems that you need to go to some illegal downloading site to get it. I want to pay these artists for their songs. Even if the song was not featured in an anime...
