Vinyl records are getting popular again in Japan. If you like vinyls, we recommend you check the second hand records in Japan. Many say the second hand records in Japan are generally in good condition although the price is cheap!
So, where should you go to buy records in Tokyo? The answer is Shibuya. Shibuya is the area known as the record town since the 90s. Over 10 record shops are scattered around the town. Since the major CD retailer, HMV opened a new/used record shop in Shibuya in 2014, the record town is attracting more new and old record fans.
In this post, we will introduce the major record shops in Shibuya. Most of the vinyl records are imported but you can also find some old and new J-pop records. Beside Shibuya, Shimokitazawa is another major record town.
