Hi!
I was wondering if anybody knows any neat internet-based record stores in Japan, where they sell the 60s-90s pop/alternative/punk etc. The main importance is that they sell Japanese issues of Western and US music, but I'm also looking for some Japanese records.

Thanks!

If you are looking for older Japanese music, you may want to try Memorial CD Shop OTOKICHI as they specialize in hard to find and outdated/out of print items. They have a western music link but it says it is under construction (you may need to inquire).

There is also Tokyo Record Hunting Service which is sort of a locator service.

Besides Amazon Japan (mentioned above), Tower Records Japan and HMV also carry Japanese issues of western releases.

That's one spooky coincidence, the one day I decide to try to find a site which specializes in out of print CD's I find it.

😄

Meh, if only I had that kinda luck outside the web. :eek:
