"Japanese Girl" is Japanese singer Hitomi's twenty-eighth single. It is also her first work to be released from her own sub-label within Avex, Love Life Records.


The single as released the same as the DVD "Hitomi 2005 10th Anniversary Live: Thank You", and the photoshoot "hitomi Love Life Style", and it was released approximately one year after her previous single. "Japanese Girl", apart from being her first single to be released from her sub-label Love Life Records, marks as well a change in style in Hitomi's music. From the "rockish" image from her previous works until that date, with this single Hitomi began trying more dance-pop oriented music, and also changed her image to be more provocative than before. "Japanese Girl" was used as opening theme of NHK's TV show Music Fighter for May, and also of TVO's "Heroin Tanjo!".[1]

As b-sides the single includes "Venus", cover of The Shocking Blue, which was used as backing music in commercials of Japan's Gillette starring Hitomi herself, and also a re-arranged version of "There Is...", Hitomi's 15th single.[2]

The limited edition of the single included a special set of nail chip, as a special collaboration of Hitomi with nail artist Eriko Kurosaki.
