Japanese Artists on Twitter

Japanese artists on Twitter - Jpop artists, Jrock artists, J-urban artists - Japanese Music Producers, Japanese DJs, J-pop and J-rock groupsAs alot of you folks may know, the three of us here at Gaijin Kanpai! make use of Twitter ALOT. What, then, would be more appropriate than an exhaustive directory of Jrock, Jpop, and J-Urban artists, DJ's, singers, musicians, and producers who use Twitter?

This list is as complete as we could get it, but please leave other artist Twitters in your comments. Also let us know what accounts are fake, out of date, whatever. The more accurate this list, the better.

And if you're an artist on this list and you would prefer NOT to be listed, feel free to send us an e-mail to be removed.

アーティストの皆様へ、

あなたのアカウントをこのリストをやめたい方、GKにメールなさって下さい。

ありがとうござます。

-ガイジン・カンパイ!

 

UPDATE July 3rd, 2010: Tons of J-Artists have begun using Twitter since this list was created in January, and it's been updated to reflect the newer users! Many more are out there, I'm sure, so once again, comment with updates!

Here's the list - follow away! Keep in mind that these are musicians mostly based in Japan, so most of their tweets will be in Japanese.
