Konnichiwa! this is Ayako Ochi.

Do you know “Namie Amuro”?  She is one of the most famous and talented Japanese singers. She started her career as a singer in 1992 and now she is 32 years old.  When I was in a junior high school and high school all the teenagers was listning to her songs.  And nowadays wide range of generations loves her songs.

Yesterday she awarded a “best selling artist in Asia” at World Music Awards 2010 in Monte Carlo!  Maybe you know this Music Award as Elissa won the best selling artist in Middle East.

You will find Amuro’s CD at the new space for Contemporary Japanese Culture in our library which will be opened from this Summer (around July~)!!
