    Most famous Japanese song ?


    国際交流パーティー
    Tokyo International Party

    What do you think is the most famous Japanese song ? A song that any Japanese native from any age knows and can sing by heart. Or maybe a Japanese song that has had succes abroad ?

    Honey, L'Arc-en-ciel is quite well known here.
    Also, Gactk's redemption, fom the KH thingy. (I think it's Redemption anyways!)

    Click on the links to listen to the songs

    "Yutaka Ozaki - I love you" (MY ALL TIME FAVORITE, good for Karaoke)
    "Dreams come true - love love love"
    "Southern all stars - Tsunami"
    "Nami amuro - Can you celebrate"
    "MISIA - everything"
    "Smap - Lionheart"
    "CHAGE&ASKA - SAY YES"
    "X Japan - Forever love" (Easy to cry with)

    These songs are well known by most Japanese (even I can sing a little bit along), especialy the first 3 are well known.

    (Middle aged Japanese most know the this one from Shimon Masato, the best selling single in Japanese history of music)

    (Finally a thread that fits in my street haha)

    I would say that beside Forever Love the most known song is also Endless Rain from X Japan
