About karaoke

Karaoke can refer to a machine which lets people sing along to prerecorded music, an act of singing using a karaoke machine, or a place with a karaoke machine.

The reason why it is popular

Countries outside of Japan imported made-in-Japan karaoke machines, and karaoke has since become popular. The reason why it is popular is because a group of friends can have fun together at karaoke, and a person can visit karaoke alone to sing their heart out without having to worry about others, which is great for relieving stress.
