Japanese pop music, or J-pop as it is more commonly known, has been around for decades and has seen its fair share of hits.

But what are the absolute best, most classic J-pop songs of all time?

This question was challenging, so we enlisted the help of a true expert: our intern.

Who claims to know everything there is to know about Japanese pop music (and he's only been listening to it for a few weeks).

After "hours" of careful deliberation and some very heated debates, we finally managed to narrow it down to the top 30 J-pop hits of all time.

So without further ado, here are the best J-pop songs of all time, according to our intern (in no particular order).
