If you're a music enthusiast who still swears by vinyl and enjoys digging through piles of secondhand records, then this Shibuya shop will feel like a small slice of heaven. Opened in August 2014, HMV stocks up to 80,000 titles, with around 60% of those being vinyl and the rest mainly CDs. The focus is on releases from the '60s to the late '90s – something for everyone, in other words. On the first floor you'll find rock and pop records, secondhand CDs, books and mags, accessories and music players, while the second floor is dedicated to genres like soul, reggae and jazz, while a small room in the back even holds a small selection of cassette tapes. Most records on sale in the shop can be tried out on the freely usable laser turntable, allowing you to confirm the sound quality before buying.
