The 90s in Japan were marred by economic turmoil and recession. Despite this, the “Lost Decade” would produce some of the most popular music ever in Japan. Join A-to-J Connections as we take a look at what topped the charts in the 90s, and check out music not often heard outside of Japan.

Artists like KAN, Kome Kome CLUB, Mr.Children, KinKi Kids, GLAY, and more will be discussed along with their many record-breaking songs. Stop by to possibly learn something new, and stay for the awesome music!
