Fukuyama san’s 20th single Tokyo was released at 17 August 2005. I think Fukuyama san is one of the great male singers in Japan, mainly because he has a soft and gorgeous vocal (just like Kuwata Keisuke). He is definately not such of singer who can sing rock or rap, that’s why most of his songs are soft and slow. You will feel great and comfortable when you listen to his songs. I remember the first song i heard from Fukuyama san was Sakuraban which released on 26th April 2000. I saw him from tv music station, he played with the guitar when he sang the song. After that he took part in some japanese drama, too bad i only remember one of them named Bijo ka Yajuu or some of them call this drama as Beauty and The Beast.

The first song Tokyo is the ending theme of the current japanese drama Slow Dance. The time i get in touch with this song was because of this drama, I was really impressed when i heard the ending theme. It just gave me a really strong feeling when i listen to this song. The second song Watashiwa Kaze ni Naru, a bit similar to the first one but added some smooth jazz feel. Both of the songs are basically sounds very smooth, so i think most of you guys will love this single.

I downloaded “Tokyo” but when I listened to it, I got Tokyo by YUI, not by Fukuyama…

Hmmm…when I was listening to “Tokyo” it was from a different artist called YUI, wrong mp3 put up I guess…

admin: YUI also have a song named “TOKYO”, it’s common for different songs to have the same title.

I was quite impressed with this singer’s vocal abilities. And you were right. His vocals would not be good for other genres other than ballads/slow songs. Thank you for introducing me to such a singer.
