Schedule

Overview

Her debut single “Automatic/time will tell” released on December 9, 1998 sold over two million copies, and at the young age of 15, she made her name as one of Japan’s top artists.
Just a few months later, she released her first album “First Love,” which set the record in CD sales in Japan. This record still remains unbroken.
All of her albums that followed have topped the charts. In 2007, her single “Flavor Of Life” set the world record in number of downloads.
In 2010, she took a break from her music activities to focus on her life as a person. In April 2016, she went full-throttle with her artist activities by releasing the singles “Hanataba Wo Kimini” and “Manatsu No Tooriame.”
Her record-setting continues with her latest releases. Her sixth album "Fantôme", released in September 2016, took the top spot in the Oricon album chart for four weeks in a row, a personal best. And her song "Hikari -Ray of Hope MIX- (REMIXED BY PUNPEE)" reached number two on the US iTunes album chart, a first for a Japanese artist.

Their concerts are big hits too, and although they just finished an arena tour last year which had more than 300,000 in attendance across Japan.
