Welcome to the WikiProject Japan Music taskforce! The objective of this taskforce is to improve all of the Japanese music-related and "music in Japan"-related articles on Wikipedia. This includes traditional Japanese music as well as more recent additions to the field (enka, rock, J-pop, etc.) Our goal is to bring as many as possible of these articles up to Featured Article status, and you can help! Even if you can only spend a short time here and there working on the articles, your assistance is greatly appreciated.

The main article of this taskforce is Music of Japan. Everything else branches off from there.

Scope edit

This taskforce aims primarily at having a standard guidelines for Japanese music and related articles, categories, and templates.
