Japanese pop music (known as J-pop) is a mashup of traditional Japanese music influenced by 1960s American pop and rock music and modern pop music. While the J-pop genre was initially influenced by foreign music (The Beatles were are huge influence in the 60s), these days, J-pop artists have a sound that is all their own and highly influential in their own right. J-pop music has been immensely influential to other musicals styles - especially those in other parts of Asia. Fittingly, the term J-pop has changed from describing just Western-style Japanese music to many other genres of Japanese music.

J-pop, short for Japanese pop, is, according to Wikipedia, a loosely-defined musical genre that entered the musical mainstream of Japan in the 1990s. Modern J-pop has its roots in 1960s music such as The Beatles and replaced kayokyoku (“Lyric Singing Music”, a term for Japanese pop music from the 1920s to the 1980s) in the Japanese music scene. The term was coined by the Japanese media to distinguish Japanese music from foreign music, and now refers to most Japanese popular music.”
