    Looking For Japanese Music

    Hi, I am in the process of learning Japanese, and one of the many suggestions is to kisten to Japanese Music. I dont know a whole lot about the Japanese music scene, but I know I like Asian Kung-Fu Generation. If you know of any other bands with a similar style that would be really helpful.

    I'm not familiar with Asian Kung-Fu Generation, but you might want to look into Malice Mizer or Gackt (a soloist).

    I'm not sure if this is Japanese or Korean, but I really enjoy listening to music by BoA. I like the English version of the Lights of Seoul, and the song Nothings Going to Change my Love.

    Similar to Asian Kung-fu Generation huh? You might want to consider these:

    1] Straightener.
    2] The back horn.
    3] Bump of Chicken.
    4] Art-School.
    5] Remioromen.
    6] Syrup16g.
    7] Thee Michelle Gun Elephant.
    8] Kohl.
    9] Triceratops.

    I can't think of more at the moment... but these should suffice. Most of these bands are pretty similar to Asian Kung-fu Generation, though not exactly alike, but I am sure you will find at least one of them enjoyable.. Also look into Fuji fabric, they are really good, and might make good first impression on you ~!! And lastly, try Chatmonchy, in a way, they are sort of the female counterparts of Asian Kung-fu Generation. =P

    Well, I hope this helps.

    it depends on your style of music. if you like happy upbeat things, look for ddr tunes. if you like metal or hard rock, amy i suggest Maximum the Hormone or The World?
    Why hello there!
