My favorite famous person from Japan is...
This woman's name is Koda Kumi (Kuu-chan).
Kuu-chan's birthday is 11/13/1982

Kuu-chan is Japanese.
(She is) from Kyoto.
This is a pagoda.
Kuu-san is very sexy.
Kuu-san likes to eat cupcakes and cakes.
(How do I combine these sentences?)
Cute, isn't it?
I don't know what Kuu-san dislikes, but I know she loves to sing.
Kuu-chan likes to be at concerts, because she is a J-pop singer.
Here is her music video.
I like Kuu-chan, because her song is in a video game I love.
I love Final Fantasy!

Resolved Question: Does anyone know of
I'm a total fan of that song, "Switch" by Lisa, feat. Koda Kumi and Heartsdales, and I really need some more songs like it. I already listen to everything by Heartsdales, but I have problems finding anything like "Switch" by Lisa and Koda Kumi. Do you have a suggestion to a japanese song within this same genre? It doesn't have to be by any of the above mentioned artists at all, nor does it have to be females. I also adore hip-hop like nobodyknows+ and KM-MARKIT, so anything like either of those would be very well appreciated, too.
