Found this great article on Japanese Record Stores on http://www.thevinylfactory.com on Record Stores in Japan. the style and concepts behind the way is amazingly focused, integrating music with a philosophy of inclusion making it a life choice to be musically centered.
Go to The Vinyl Factory Website to watch all the videos in this series, very engaging and informative.
-” An introduction to the vinyl mecca that is Tokyo.
For a city that is so obsessed with the future, Tokyo’s vinyl scene is as strong as anywhere in the world. From the late night jazz and whiskey bars to the department-store sized record shops, the Japanese capital is a destination for collectors like no other.
While we’ve already dipped our toes in the scene, highlighting the brilliant Disk Union and Dub Store shops and tracking down records from Tokyo to Osaka, discovering a series of short films that profile the city’s different stores has been about as exciting as unearthing a rare Sakamoto 12″.
Each film in the Tokyo Vinyl series profiles a different shop, teasing out its identity and how it fits into the neighbourhood.
The film above focusses on the newly opened waltz and its fantastic collection of tapes and vinyl, bucking the record shop trend in the city in moving away from the “man cave” environment towards a more inclusive space.
The next video profiles Discland Jaro in Shibuya, an old-school spot with expert advice known for its speciality jazz records.”-
