    Hey ^^
    I am a K-Pop fan and Otaku and that's why I decided to try out J-Pop as well, since I really like the japanese language and culture.
    My problem is: I don't know where to start :D
    There are so many J-Pop songs and I just don't know which of them are considered "classics" (just like "Sorry sorry", "Gee", "Haru Haru"... for K-Pop) since I would like to try them out first.
    I know about AKB48 and I've already listened to some songs by AAA but I would like you to recommend me:
    1. J-Pop "classics"
    2. some groups/singers/songs you personally like

    Thanks ^^

    Utada Hikaru and Olivia Lufkin are my favourite Japanese singers so I'd recommend them :)
    Also, I'm a huge fan of FEMM; but all their songs are in English - idk if you mind that.

    And if you're more into electronic stuff check out Perfume and Capsule.
    Enjoy :D

    Namie Amuro, Mika Nakashima, Utada Hikaru, Ayumi Hamasaki... these ladies have been a constant in J-Pop. Well-known both locally and internationally. Another artist I'd recommend is Yui.

    Hope this helps! :)

    I love Kalafina myself. I'm not sure where they stand in classics, but they are popular and often heard in anime op's & ed's.

    They are vocal group that is amazing live :D There is three members: Wakana, Hikaru and Keiko. They are formed by Yuki Kajiura who is famous songwriter in Japan and does OST for animes all the time. She performs with them playing piano and they have also another group called FictionJunction where Wakana and Keiko are members with two other girls.
