- The tenth floor of Shinjuku's Tower Records store will specialize in vinyl from the end of March.
A new record store called Tower Vinyl Shinjuku is set to open inside of Tokyo's flagship Tower Records store.
From March 21st, the tenth floor of Tower Records will stock more than 70,000 vinyl records. 30,000 of those will be new inventory, including new releases, reissues and limited edition items from both Japanese and Western artists. The other 40,000 records are secondhand, a collection that ranges in style but will have an emphasis on soul and rock.
The new space's interior is covered in glass and features a large vintage speaker for an enhanced shopping experience. There will also be in-store events and vinyl pop-up shops in the future.
