japanese pop

This is just a small selection of J-Pop sites; if you have a favorite I haven't linked to here, in either English or Japanese, please let me know.



A grand experiment in Japanese Pop information, with many artist profiles.




A growing collection of artist profiles, features and links, with great interviews.



CD Japan

One of my favorite stores for J-Pop, with good selection and service. Great for pre-orders, and news of the latest releases.
