Digging Japan

Our second trip to Tokyo record stores proved very rewarding with some reasonably priced recycled gems in amazing condition hitting the crates today!

We thought we would share a few digs and tips for storing, carrying and transporting records. We travelled to Narita airport via Jetstar, taking two empty DJ travel cases with us and booking the maximum 40kgs luggage per person for the return trip, this with ‘special’ records carried on board allowed us the bring around 250 records back into Australia. TIP: make sure any travel bags can fit into the train station lockers which have a maximum storage time of 3 days. We used ‘Vinyl Hub’ to locate specific stores near where we were. The records are priced much the same as you would find them locally – but the selection is unbelievable and the condition is always ‘excellent’! Happy digging!
