I mostly get it from twitter (or H+ recently, since a lot of releases are posted here). You can also follow official Youtube channels of labels/artists.
Another option is to look at CDJapan's list of monthly releases, although that isn't necessarily the most convenient. The easiest would probably just be to check out the threads that are posted here.

You already listen to Perfume, but apart from them my favourite Japanese groups would be Momoiro Clover Z, NMB48 and probably Team Shachi.
I made a thread listing and linking the releases of Stardust (a Japanese agency) girl groups, you can find the link here:

If you want I could also tell you which ones I like the most so far.

twitter, if u follow the right people and news accounts u get a solid base. there are tons of people updating and sharing info and translated content, not as much as kpop but still, to me its pretty consistent
also jpn news site like natalie and oricon

hearing from twitter the joint =LOVE&≠ME live went veeery good, notme did 46&48's songs because they have nothing at the time, and who is surprised





both https://twitter.com/8c3iy0PhNlJU5WX and https://twitter.com/onigiridouga posted clips of the live, there was a live streaming on yt but is already down

also they announced the 6th single, we just now the release date 30th October 2019 and notme will be in the coupling tracks

Hoshino Gen is now available on streaming platforms. I can't see any of his stuff on Spotify, here in the US. I don't know if it's a time delay thing or what. I can see his stuff on iTunes/Apple Music though.

spotify jpn decided to release different playlists made with the works of the most relevant and famous japanese composers/lyrics/producers
is very interesting, many tracks are region locked (but u just need to have a jpn account)

I am not sure if this is too old to revive.

But I just got my shipment of Aoi Eir/Fragment
LiSA/Leo NiNE and Leo Ieiri/Duo

I haven't listened to fragment yet.
But the other two are amazing thus far.
