His drum fills are just out of this world, He's one of the most influential drummers of Japan. His tempo is amazing, his live performance is just as good as his studio recordings. He's got everything a drummer needs.
he is once a roadie of 44magnum but don't underestimate him because he is one of yasunori sakurazawa's great influences just like john bonham
a drummer of one of the most influential band in japan
Sakura, still doing a great job still nowadays. He inspired himself in bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and The Police; to me he is epic in Japanese music world. I recommend searching about him, he's a winner in many other aspects in his life.
an ex-l'arc~en~ciel drummer, he is a drummer of SONS OF ALL PUSSYS

I think, he is the best senior drummer in japan. Not like another drummer in another band, shinya can make his "signature sound". He can create characteristic sound that LUNA SEA can make it. If you curious, see the PV or listen Luna sea - Rosier.
I'm surprised this man is not listed among the ten. If I just watched the spinning drum sets, I don't think I would have admired him. There is so much more to drumming than just power, speed, and anything else mentioned in comments here. He does a switch from drumsticks to mallets in his efforts to express, teases with manipulation of volume, develops different themes through background recordings (the tribal theme in Tokyo Dome Rebot was just beautiful) and puts so much emotion into his art. Add to that playing in a suit, which makes movement and range of motion more difficult, if the drummer chooses to go crazy. Even with the craziness he seems to want before J comes in, he still puts so much dignity into the art of drumming. This man should be occupying that number 1 spot.
Experienced, long time drummer of the back BUCK-TICK. He can play any kind of beats on any kind of music. Since the band is always changing styles and such, he has possibly went through a lot of changes as well on his drumming; always improving. He is that amazing.
I find his drumming really interesting and almost flawless. After years of experience he developed his own, unique style. It doesn't mean though that he's not versatile, on contrary, his drumming works well on every album in every song, and the band went through lots of changes.
The drummer chick that can pound the drums effectively and quickly. She can sing very well while drumming too. She is good, I think someone like her deserves some respect!
By far the BEST female drummer and backup vocalist in the WORLD! Not just Japan!
This guy was amazingly good when he was alive
a deceased drummer of LOUDNESS
A very famous drummer in the Japanese rock scene. Jun-ji is a former member of Siam shade, and has done support drums for Gackt, T.M. revolution, Vamps, Acid Black Cherry, LM. C, and Janne the Arc. He's known for his humor and great talent.
Another great indie drummer.
Yummi is a really great drummer.. She is very talented as a girl.. She can plays the drum like John Bonham (led Zeppelin).. You should hear her drum play. She have the passion as a great drummer..
Great visual kei/Gothic drummer.
Yamato-san1! He may not be as popular as the other drummers of Jrock bands out there. But trust me, he's one of the best!
Such a great drummer
