Best Japanese Guitarists Ever


The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Minoru Kojima (The Mad Capsule Markets, creature creature)

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 - ronluna

82Kyrie (NoGoD)
83Ryo Kawakita

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.

85Yoshinari Tokuoka (DEPAPEPE)
86Hiroaki Masukawa (Bump of Chicken)
87Yoshikazu Yahiro
88Ukigumo (Tokyo jihen)

This guy is just amazing and he is not even here.

89Yamashita Hotaka (Ikimono Gakari)

This dude plays guitar and HARMONICA at the same time, how can you get cooler than that?

90Johannes Krauser II (Detroit Metal City)

Hahaa. you're stupid if you don't know who Krauzer is... He's well known with his legendary teeth guitar..

91Yusuke (Hybrid-Zombiez)
92Atsushi "Jet Finger" Yokozeki (JAM Project)

Atsushi is an amazing guitarist. he's one of the fastest guitarists I've ever heard, he can shred at 400bpm. he's also great at composing, it's sad you can't find much of his music online. I'm sure it's floating around underground metal groups in Japan, though.

93Susumu Nishikawa
94Yuji Hirayama (Momoiro Clover Z)
95Hirotaka Sato (Momoiro Clover Z)
96Takamizawa (The Alfee)
97Masaharu Fukuyama
98Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48)
