Where to get into the wamono groove
For all types of tunes related to the Showa era, Disk Union is your one-stop shop. From hardcore wamono diggers to beginners, there’s something for everyone amongst their huge selection that ranges from rare secondhand vinyl and CDs to ‘greatest hits’ albums by some of the genre’s biggest names.
HMV focuses on releases from the ’60s to the late ’90s and stocks up to 80,000 titles, with around 60 percent of those being vinyl and the rest mainly CDs. Their independent re-releases of famed wamono records are worth a close look, as is the freely usable laser turntable which lets you try before you buy.
