Yukari Takasaki is a prime example of the Shibuya-kei movement. Her music is very upbeat, playful, poppy, and whimsical. Yukari Takasaki was a member of one of Tokyo's Escalator Records' first bands, Snapshot. The duo (Takasaki and her current husband, Yugo Katayama) released several singles and EPs, but turned to solo and other collaborative work in the later mid-90s. Yukari debuted with the cheekily titled Yukari's Perfect! in 1997 on Escalator Records.
