Who is Japan's greatest singer?

Misora Hibari.

Almost every Japanese woman over 50 is a huge fan (like my mom). She also has many non-Japanese fans, such as heavy metal guitarist Marty Friedman. She could sing almost any genre, including enka, jazz, and pop. All of Japan went into mourning when she died in 1989.

Have a look at some of her videos on YouTube.
