Japan trip - audio-related stuff
« on: June 05, 2019, 09:43 »
I will be visiting Japan for the first time this coming December for 9 days. The time will be spent between Tokyo and another city(undecided) and I am interested to spend 1-2 days exploring audio-related stuff. Any recommendations on what I can do or where I can visit?

Tower Records for CDs (I think they have vinyls too).

Disk Union (for vinyls).

Hi All.  Where is the best place to shop for SACDs?  HK or Tokyo?

there's still hmv there, saw one in shibuya.

tsutaya sorts their cd via katakana, tower sorts via english.
