From NHK World:

Singer Hideki Saijo dies
The Japanese singer Hideki Saijo has died. He was 63.

His agency said Saijo died of acute heart failure late Wednesday in a hospital in Yokohama, near Tokyo.

Saijo was born in Hiroshima City and made his debut at the age of 17. He won a huge following, especially among young women, for his energetic singing style.

He was also popular in other Asian countries. He performed at a concert held just before the 1988 Seoul Olympics, becoming the first Japanese to sing in the Japanese language at a public venue in South Korea since the end of World War Two.
