With the entrance wedged between two parts of the same game center, this 2nd floor record shop is the most Shimokitazawa-like store you’re likely to come across.

The friendly pony tailed owner looks like he’s been in the business since he was a teenager. More than any other shop, Flash Disc Ranch provides those “oh, wow” moments when flipping through the records.

The shop is crammed full of genres. The classic record covers from the 70s and 80s in the numerous 300yen boxes are worth the 3 coins all by themselves.
