Heisei Hits

Heisei Hits

Named to honour the reign of Emperor Akihito, the Heisei period spanned 30 years from 1989 to 2019. During this time, Japan’s music scene incorporated a kaleidoscopic spectrum of sounds, from the alternative jazz stylings of Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra to the crisp R&B of Hikaru Utada and Mai Kuraki. This mix charts the era.
