I recommend to listen to some of Ayumi Hamaskai's songs and Namie Amuro's songs. I like Namie's Speed Star! That song is really good.....and also Inspire from Ayumi is good as well.

Acutally it depends on what genre you would like to hear:

For my taste of pop, definitely Ayumi Hamasaki, ELT, Ai Otsuka etc.

For my taste of R & B, usually Namie Amuro, BoA, Utada Hikaru etc.

For my taste of ballads, I'd go for OLIVIA, Hajime Chitose but I don't really go for those who sing purely ballads.

For my taste of rock, usually HAndMC, Orange Range, abingdon boys school etc.

I recommend ayaka, great voice, superb live singer, and can sing all types of songs. She is most famous for her slower songs, like I believe, Mikazuki, Te wo Tsunagou, but her more upbeat songs are pretty good too. In fact, I think I am going to make a thread about her right now.

Depends on your interests. Artists like Nami Tamaki (Brightdown, Oversoul) are good to listen to just for the sake of listening to a good japanese song/voice, L'Arc~En~Ciel or Gackt if it's light J-rock you're into. If you're feeling perticularly demonic, Dir En Grey or MAXIMUM THE HORMONE (or atleast some of MTH's songs... try to avoid "Hesei Strawberry Vibe", anyway >_>).

LCeh: Funny, I was just listening to Ayaka's live performance of " Te o Tsunago" at budokan like two minutes ago.

She's really amazing and hits all the right keys. Very rare for female jpop artists. Good choice

That performance is definitely one of her best, and at that very same concert, she performed Mikazuki almost to perfection as well. She really is something, the way she performs at live occasions is just amazing, and she is still so young. I hope she will keep striving to improve her singing as well as lyrics writing.

Unfortunately, she isn't really known outside of Japan, although she has been doing quite well in Japan. That's why I have been promoting her on forums these days.

I'm too lazy to write something about all of these artists, so I'll just list them, roughly divided by genres. Awesome stuff only.
Spoiler for List:

I'll stop here for now. It's not like a lot of people will look through the whole list anyway.

I don't listen to much Japanese music but I'd highly recommend the Pillows, Sparta Locals, and the Polysics. They're all awesome imo.

Try both Odore (from live action Osen) and Yukiyanagi, both are pretty good.

Well, I listen to most genres of music ( jap mainly). Also it's no fun mentioning names that everyone knows i.e HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR, ayumi hamasaki, BoA, EXILE, aqua timez etc So I'll just go with less infamous bands / singers. Maybe next time I'll list somewhat well known groups.

More unknown-ish artist that I listen to, ones that are from the Bemani franchise ( or was). Bemani being the company or so that produces games like DDR, beatmania, drummania, pop at music, etc. Songs that are more upbeat and can pump you up somewhat xD.

BeForU - red rocket rising, yoru hanabi, moon bike, 6 rainbow, kiseki, dive, bala bala etc

Kanako Hoshino - inferno, gekkou, dance, taiyou, max love, etc

DJ Yoshitaka - alot of his songs he composes are awesome . ( darling my LUV, max love with kanako hoshino, etc)

Sayaka Minami - under the sky, double loving heart, life

TЁЯRA (naoki + jun karashima ) - More favourite bemani group - switch, hana ranman flowers

PlatoniX ( not active anymore, yes junko is in this ) - Don't be afraid myself

FripSide - save me again, velocity, misery, end game, etc

Junko Hirata - double loving heart, under the sky) [ both sang with Sayaka Minami

Riyu Kosaka - freedom, baby's tears, danzai no hana, platnium smile, etc

Ayane [ Junko Hirata's mainstream] - romancing story, cloudier sky, lunatic tears, wish on truth, etc

Naoki a.k.a god of bemani, composes a lot of BeForU’s songs, Part of Terra, tons tons of alias’s.

Those are the only ones that stand out atm.

TЁЯRA - Hana Ranman Flowers for an example

Spitz & Kamakura Kei are the 2 male artists/groups I listen to...oh and Kaguya Hime from 15-20 years

Mitose Noriko, Shigata Akiko, Shimotsuki Haruka, Ishibashi Yuuko (Ar Tonelico song birds...currently on heavy rotation in my listening, even if you haven't played the games, I HIGHLY suggest trying to snag the soundtrack...VERY beautiful singing...unique too)

Akino Arai
Makino Yui
Mizuki Nana (particularly Astrogation)
Monet/PixelBee (currently on break due to pregnancy)
