Grimes has never been shy to acknowledge the influence of Japan on her work. The Canadian electronic pop artist, born Claire Boucher, credits a wide and various list of Japanese inspirations, including Yayoi Kusama, Geinoh Yamashirogumi, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, “Akira,” “The Legend of Zelda” video-game series, and many more.

She’s even expressed an interest in recording her new album here (a plan she had to cancel due to a hyperactive touring and promotional schedule).
