Depends. What type of music do you like?
I listen to quite a lot of Japanese urban music so I can definitely help you out.
Like jpguy said, Kumi Koda is a must. She was my favourite J-Pop artist, nowadays I don't have a fav but I still like her
The following are great too:
Namie Amuro (she started off pop but had some R&B songs, then she went fully R&B for a while and nowadays I'd say mostly pop again)
ARIA (she used to be called Asuka when she started, and back then her music was Neo Soul, but after she changed her name she also glammed up her image and went fully urban)
LISA (one of the nicest voices ever but extremely underrated she is mostly R&B but has a lot of experimental music too)
m-flo (LISA used to be in that group for their first two albums)
YU-A (also try out the girl group she used to be in, they're called Foxxi misQ)
I'll stop there before I overload you
There's still a lot more but those I listed have a lot of great music!
