Akina Nakamori promoting her third album, "Fantasy".

Akina Nakamori is a Japanese pop idol who was most famous during the 1980's Golden Era of J-pop. Her career spans over thirty years and includes a wide array of genres, such as "idol pop", Latin, rock, dance-pop, folk, enka, and RnB. With so many albums (try over 20, and almost just as many best, cover, and box set albums) it's becomes near impossible to find complete discography information for this fantastic singer's career.

This hub provides complete tracklists for all of Akina's original studio albums. And by "complete tracklists", we mean complete. This is one of the only places on the web you're going to find the original kana, romanizations, and full English translations of all her original album songs.

All translations by the author.
