If you are really interested in Japanese chiptune you need to go through and sample all the artists on this page:

OMODAKA and Saitone in particular are simply amazing! OMODAKA has to be the most unique thing I’ve ever heard. Think the tightest chiptune you’ve ever heard and enka being combined. Sounds like it’s terrible but it is done perfectly and the videos are trippy as hell!
