80 Japanese Love Songs

Hi everyone!

I love listening to music so I decided to create a list of Japanese songs I love listening to.

There is a variety of songs here, from some 80’s, 90’s, to early 2000’s and onwards.

All of these songs were picked through my personal taste in music, but there are many famous, popular Japanese songs included on this list.

I was going to divide the songs between happy and sad love songs but like all things in life, music isn’t black and white so I just ended up putting everything together.

All links lead to Youtube, specifically the artist’s official channel or the Topic channel.

Otherwise, if there is no link please search up the song because someone else will probably have uploaded it.

I don’t know how long these links will work because Japanese songs tend to get taken down a lot on Youtube but if the link doesn’t work, try searching for it on Youtube and somebody else will probably have uploaded it.

Also I’m pretty sure most of these songs are love songs but note that I’m not fluent in Japanese (Although I understand quite a bit). Hopefully I interpreted them alright ^^

Note: Some of the songs on this list are covers so the artist named on this list may not be the original artist.

Now let’s get to the music. I hope you enjoy 🙂
