I like Fukurou, Kujira, and Tanuki by Koukia.

I've been getting into the City Pop genre from back in the day. There are a lot of artists that I can recommend like Mizuki Ohira who has a gorgeous voice btw. There are also a lot of bands out there that do not typically do the usual rock but there are some parts of it that combine the city pop sound with the usual rock. Of course, JPop will also be strong but the instrumentals and the mix with the voices just makes it work when it comes to Japanese music. Another band that I like is LUCKY TAPES which is a great sounding band and they have a great discography.

Hakujitsu by King Gnu has been on repeat for me for the last few weeks. It's so good.

And Inferno by Mrs Green Apple, too.

But if you're looking for City Pop, Telephone Number by Junko Ohashi is pretty great (that whole album is fun).

I like a lot of different genres, but Kenshi Yonezu is one of my favorite artists (he does a weird variety of stuff but I guess its like... rock pop..?), KANA-BOON (rock pop), POLKADOT STINGRAY (rock pop), and capsule (j-pop) from the early 2000's. 

 

I listen to a lot of video game music soundtracks as well haha!

When it comes to Japanese music. I have been enjoying listening to AKB48. Just something to listen to if you are not on a good mood. They have this charm that will definitely brighten up your day. Also, there are also a lot of great artists such as Kenshi Yonezo. Flamingo is a good one. It might not be obvious but there are a lot of great Japanese artists right now. Also, Uno Misako's lost is also a good one. You just need to explore the Japanese music industry and you'll see how fun their music videos are! good luck!

Try listening to Phantasmagoria, it's a visual kei band with some kote kei elements, and some powermetal elements.

 

Then, there's also Nightmare, the visual kei band,

12012,

The GazettE,

Sadie,

 

Those are all visual kei bands,

 

I am currently still checking out new bands, so, youtube is very fun to browse, you can find new things. :D

 

Edit: Diaura is also another visual kei band that I listen too, that I would recommend.
