That's a very tough question to answer... there are very talented Japanese artists in virtually every musical style you could want. Could you tell us a little about other music you like? I could try and help out with some Japanese artists who perform similar styles... otherwise, there's really just too many to list here.
Hmm .. Japanese artists. It's hard to tell you because it really depends on your taste - Jpop, Jrock .. ya know?Hmm .. Onitsuka Chihiro is very good! I don't want to name the wrong type of music so let us know what you like to listen to. ^^

Hello! Project anything (but especially Melon Kinenbi and Morning Musume)
BoA - Her Korean and english stuff is fantastic too
Aki Maeda - Gomen Ne (its such a beautiful song!!)
Miyuki Kanbe - Rainbow Notes (SO cute!!!)
Bishoujo Club 21 (or 31 as they are now) they are only just starting up, but the lead singer Beni Arashiro has 2 singles out and they are very good too.
Rei Saito - Ano Tsuki no You Ni (*swoons*)
Also, PV's are reeaallly goodness if you like the Mp3's too!
I like Gackt, V6, L'Arc~En~Ciel, Hide, BoA...and a few others, but I haven't heard much...Dir en Grey are good too...
From Gackt I really love Vanila, Mirror, Mizerable, Daremo inai heya de (something like that...lol..its that one song he sings for the Dears...)
From V6 I like way too much stuff to name..lol..I have their Very Best and Seven CD's..From L'Arc~En~Ciel I like Finale and that's the only thing I've heard..lol..The only song I've heard from BoA is Every Heart from Inu Yasha...
L'arc en ciel = hitomi no juunin (sorry if I make a mistake write their song), cradle (too..too..too..too...sad song ), shout at the devil (my second official l'arc's song), honey (sweet ), and all their song in "REAL" ( I think that is their best album).
Janne Da Arc = love their song such as shining ray, maria, etc
Malize Mizer = from album "merveilles"....nice!!
Gackt = still wait his album from my friend hehehe....so no comment
Dir En Grey = huhuhu..honestly,...still learn to hear their song. too heavy for a girl like me
