No one can keep up with the speed of his magic fingers. His artistry cannot be surpassed by many and with the assistance of Hizaki he can be a musical entity that none can defy.
I am very like Teru-san when he play a Super Mario song with his guitar
He is very genius guitar player, I also like Teru-san when he singing with Kaworu in Aikaryu
Teru has so much skills I think he's totally the best. He deserves for the first place EVER because he's such a great guitarist, composer and artist in general.More comments about Teru (Versailles, Hizaki Grace Project)
He is very good, and I like his. That's very wonderful.
I think to that he is hard practice everyday, and he love the guitar.
I respect to his technique. I love he.
I listened to all the bands on this list, and although none of the guitarists could hold a candle to guitarists like Herman Li of Dragonforce, this band (You included) impressed me the most.
He is very technical, and put all his soul on the music. he's a wonderful composer, very attend to the others and has a lot of presence!More comments about You (Janne Da Arc)

He writes the most beautiful Songs in the World and is more sympathetic than some others. He's very funny, the others here are not.
Sorry for Bad English...
Hitsu~! :3 Definitely underrated, or at least it seems that way. I don't know why though. He's a great guitarist (and funny on top of that, but that's not why I vote for him xD)
AHH I finally came back to vote for you Hitsugi
NIGHTMARE IS THE BEST BAND THIS WORLD HAS EVER SEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE!
His sense of composing is so unique.
I feel biotic power from his melody.
And, his crying solo guitar... Nanmoienee...
ask l'arc en ciel, buck-tick, janne the arc, kuroyume, luna sea who's their idol?
Yuji is really one of the most special guitarist as I have seen so far. His skills is really superp and he would always stand up among all the other members.
He's great. He may look like a fool sometimes but that's how he express himself while playing. That shows how much he enjoy the music and it really gives off a positive impression for the listeners.
Haruna is also a very skilled guitarist she should be one of the top 20s
I think he has awesome skill and great tone
one of the best and fastest guitarist from japan.
Takaki covers almost all kinds of guitar from playing simple acoustic riffs to shredding guitar solos! He is an all round great guitarist! The name of the band is- DEATHGAZE, check them out! ^__^
His life is so hard: being second guitarist in a band where the first guitarist is so brilliant and original that it's easy to overlook anyone else isn't the prefect way to get some recognition. It's so easy to forget about all the hard work he puts in playing and recording perfect songs. And when you listen closely, you'll discover how good musician he really is; way better then half of the people above him in my opinion.
look at e-sidewalk. net/bug kyo (isono hiroshi) stated that asaki is his idol
One of Japan's best young guitarists ever! SATOSHI KATADA!
Kotaro, or formerly known as Satoshi Katada (one of the greatest young guitar heroes in Japan), deserves to be on top of this list. I think this list shouldn't be based on popularity but on their skills instead. Kotaro is such an amazing guitarist. You should watch his videos on YouTube, the Satoshi Katada days.
Great guitarist even though he ain't well known he plays some nice riffs and solos. Listen to Blue Bird or Sakura.
another underrated guitarist all people here are voting for xjapan and dir en grey. try to appreciate more guitarists like this one. one of the best
Another underrated member of Maximum the Hormone... Something about none of MTH's members getting in the top ten is just not right... Because this guy has amazing riffs, great solo's and can sing while doing so... Not much guitarists can do that.
