Why not try listening to Japanese Christmas songs for a change? Let your latest Christmas season be filled with the beautiful sounds of Japanese music!

1. “Can’t Wait ‘Til Christmas” by Utada Hikaru

“Can’t Wait ‘Til Christmas” is the first Christmas song written by Utada. The song was released on her Utada Hikaru Single Collection Vol. 2 album. It was also used in her Pepsi Nex commercial. The lyrics talk about a person who on Christmas Eve, could not wait for Christmas Day. The lyrics ponder on why people chase for tomorrow instead of appreciating today.

2. “Hurry Xmas” by L’Arc~en~Ciel

“Hurry Xmas” is L’Arc~en~Ciel’s 34th single which was released in 2007, and then re-released in 2008, 2009, and 2010 with different art covers, making it one of the band’s most re-released singles. It must be doing well which enables it to be re-released so many times, so do check out this single!

3. “Merry Christmas” by Bump of Chicken

This song which was released in 2009 and seems to be somewhat influenced by Irish music, kind of like Celtic music which gives the song a unique edge!

4. “Xmas Story” by JUJU
