My personal favorites are Orange Range, Radwimps, Greeeen (theres either 4 or 5 e's in there haha), ZONE, Do As Infinity, etc. Just go on music rotation livejournals. Thats how i discover many good bands. hope this helps!

GReeeeN contains 4e's. :) I've found this band from J-music channel on the flight. When I was back home, I searched like crazy (before i forgot the lyrics). And then GReeeeN becomes my favorite band.

Orange Range (Orenji Renji) is extremely good. Love this band soooooo much. Especially, Hana, Ishin Denshin and Locolotion. Ikenai Taiyou is catchy one too.

Or if you'd like to try some kind of cute, try Ootsuka Ai. Her voice is so cute. Her songs as well. Catchy. Recommend Planetarium, Daisuki da yo., sakuranbo and PEACH.

If you like R&B, try Namie Amuro. I love every of her singles.

I've said it before, and I'll say it a billion times... finding an internet music station that plays japanese music is THE best way to discover what you like. Japan-A-Radio has a very good mix of many styles of Japanese music, and they have a free stream.

If you play the stream in winamp, you automatically get the title and artist in your player, so when you hear a song you like, you can write it down! (Windows Media Player, to my knowledge, does NOT display the artist/title of a track it is streaming. If anyone knows how, I'd like to hear from you, please. :P )
