www.smallmusic.jpThe coolest thing i've found in tokyo lately...
We happened into a little empty junk shop in koenji and the girl working there was checking out the new cd's she'd just rented. of course jeff recognized it and so we struck up a conversation. She ended up drawing us a little map how to get there.
Usually record stores here are pretty well stocked and I've spent fifty or sixty bucks just on random purchases, but here you can just borrow anything you like and take it home for a listen. Probably the sheer volume of quality music lifts it beyond any similar shops I've seen.
later we spent the evening at an izakaya feasting on raw chicken and beer and sake. later things blurred but there was Okinawa and karaoke in there somewhere
