The Shimokitazawa branch of this used record and CD store chain is located next to a busy road opposite the Setagaya City Hall.

The floor space and the selection are huge, with records in good condition from around 400yen. Original pressings and records that collectors might be interested in are also available for 10,000yen or more. Most decent stuff is in the 800yen to 2,000yen range. Because the place is so huge, they have pretty much every genre covered.

As well as records and CDs they have also have a wide range of essential extras – from record bags to turntables.
