Hello everyone!

I'd like to ask you a question.
I want to find more songs like Meiko Kaji's 'The Flower Of Carnage', like really soft female songs like this type of music. Is there a genre of music for that song? Please let me know!

Thank you.

There is a genre of music for that song. It's called "enka" (演歌). The best match to Meiko Kaji's vocals would be that of Teresa Teng (テレサ・テン) or Hiromi Iwasaki (岩崎宏美)
Also as a primer into enka music i'd recommend Hako Yamasaki (山崎 ハコ)、Mina Aoe (青江 三奈) and Miyuki Nakajima (中島みゆき) (although most Nakajima's songs are not enka per se)

If you're interested in male enka singers or more female suggestions - feel free to ask!

I prefer 歌謡曲 (kayoukyoku) to enka, though both are among my tunes.

On YouTube, do a search for either 演歌 or 歌謡曲 and you should be able to entertain yourself for many hours.

Suggested artists, all easily found on YouTube:

美空ひばり (Misora Hibari)
渡辺はま子 (Watanabe Hamako)
李香蘭 / 山口淑子 (Rikouran / Yamaguchi Yoshiko)(same person)

Different genre, but for arguably the only "idol singer" who could actually sing, 山口百恵 (Yamaguchi Momoe).

You should watch this playlist
These videos are from a very famous emission called "Yoru no Hit Studio"
You should try to listen to Kenji Sawada, Akina Nakamori, Sayuri Ishikawa, Aki Yashiro...
There are good medley on Youtube
