With over 11,000 records lining the wall cabinets as the sole ornament, this little music bar is truly all about the music. The name itself bespeaks its no frills music-centric approach, with 'JBS' standing for Jazz, Blues and Soul. Though not exactly famed for his friendliness, the owner, Kobayashi-san, has a profound appreciation and encyclopedic knowledge of the bar's eponymous musical genres. And even if his reserved demeanor doesn't seem to invite much chit-chat, Kobayashi-san is clearly keen to share his love of music with others – carefully selecting each record and then displaying the album jacket so his patrons can follow along with what's playing.
