I like Takako Matsu too. But naturally for me no one comes close to
Kuraki Mai. I have all her tour DVDs now. I even buy them instead of just d/l. I enjoy the literature that comes with the store package.
BoA used to be my number one favorite but Mai-K just knocked her right off after I first heard her in red/white contest several years ago.
Good choices, Momoe is forgotten/unknown by too many....and where was Pink Lady? My current faves, not that it matters, is Ai Otsuka, Hitomi Yaida, Shiina Ringo, Nanase Aikawa, and of course, everyone's #1.
i love japan songs b'cause of anime theme songs...
& first japanese artis that make me collect the original CD/dvd is ayumi hamasaki...i love her songs like M, fly high, you, love, teddy bear,girl,etc.. & her live concert is very awesome...

I also love Tane Tomoko's music - one of the most unique voices I've ever heard, like a Japanese Phoebe Snow or Kate Bush. Her best album was "Hetero" from 1999, which had a lot of really heavy alt-rock stuff on it alongside the poppy/jazzy stuff: (http://www.magnet-co.com/tane/disco.html#magl5005) Awhile ago I stumbled across her vid for "Kimi to Aruiteku" on YouTube and the song has been stuck in my head ever since.... Great singer!
