Artists and Genres


Now that you have a general point of view on Japanese Music and its industry, you can finally get your first real step and start enjoying the music. There are so many things awaiting for you that you won’t even know where to start!

In the “Artists and Genres” section you will find an ever growing list of the main genres and related artists to introduce you to the different sides of Japanese music, including a list of all the best songs, albums and music videos (a.k.a PVs/MVs) to begin with, as well as Website/Social links to be always updated on the artists you like. If you find an artist that fits your tastes you’re ready to expand your horizons and knowledge: starting from it, you can indeed widen your listen to the rest of its discography and to other related musicians of the same genre. By browsing the sub-menus of this category in the upper bar, you can check all the genres and artists that catch your attention and start from there. Once you’ve found one, your curiosity and hunger for new music will grow and evolve.

The “Artists and Genres” section is a guide to the discovery of Japanese artists, and it’s particularly aimed at newcomers, so be sure to begin from here if you’re new to Japanese music. The list is ever growing, so be sure to regularly browse it.

Have fun!
