Best Female Singer of Japan

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Akiko Shikata

I don't think a lot of people have ever heard of her unless you've played games developed by Gust. Her singing style is very unique, but not all know how to appreciate it.

Absolutely beautiful music, but an underrated composer as well -make sure you listen to her instrumentals too!

Extremely talented and versatile artist. Raka and Navigatoria are her best albums

"Shiina Ringo", well there's something about her that's just AMAZING! Her mellow voice, great imagery, stunningly classy, fluent French... oh GOD, I can't seem to put an end to it.. love her, for me she represents the best of women.. sophisticated yet utterly impeccable, I love this woman, being one of the only particular type-Unique

Not only is she the best female singer in Japan, she is the most talented musician as well. Everyone in the top ten on this list is a complete embarrassment next to her. Number one, with everyone else in a very, very, VERY distant second.

Like the voice of a goddess. Behind her songs you can hear her feelings as if they were in broad daylight. Ms. Ringo is by far one of the best I am glad to have here. Please listen to Shiina Ringo songs!

It doesn't matter what your singing about the emotion comes through the music. Love her and her beautiful voice.

Nagi deserves way more votes! The fact that she doesn't sing in a boring nasally voice like the majority of J-singers is already a plus. Her voice is sweet, mature, airy and high notes are hit with no strain and without resorting to a nasal tone.

She writes the lyrics for all her songs (with a few exceptions of when she collaborates with someone else) and composes a lot of her own unique songs.

Honestly, her style and voice are incredibly refreshing in an industry where female singers sound exactly the same as each other. The first time I heard her, I was amazed. I wish she'd get more appreciation... Looking at the top votes, I can't help but feel a little disappointed.

Wonderful voice! I started loving her from the first song I heard

Seriously, her voice is the best.
Just try it! You'll love it.

My favorite for the moment

Her vibrato is SUPERB
Her musical style is really addictive and her vocal range is indeed very versatile, ranging from the heartfelt ballads to the hard rock songs. The BEST artist in Japan for me!

Hi miss mami kawada I am one of your fan...
Your song are vary good!
I wish we will meet someday...
If you don't know my friends also idolized you...

Mamisama is THE GREATEST! Her voice reminds me of flowing water... And depending on the music, the flow of her voice ranges from softness to turbulence!

So addicting songs. I was expecting her to be much higher on this list, but oh well. I guess she's not that known.

Her voice is so touching, I think all should listen to her at least once in their life. She is truly amazing and everyone should like her

From voicing Escaflowne and to other anime characters, this woman is amazing! She's one of my favorite Jpop singers of all times! From a being a child voice actress and now with also being a singer. Her soft (piano) voice is so smoothing that's its unbelievable! She also can sing live and has never lip sync since the beginning of her career!

. Maaya Sakamoto is the best. My favorite song of her is Spica. I really love her voice

Her voice always drives me to sleep..

Her concerts are extremely fun and she always sounds like she's enjoying herself too. It's more lighthearted than anything you can ever hope for.

Ai Otsuka is the best
