As the title illustrates, this Japanese magazine tells the current story of vinyl from the Japanese perspective.
We launched the independent magazine ‘# VINYL ‘ to enjoy the life with vinyl records. The worldwide popularity of the vinyl record, which has continued to rise over the past few years, has also been dampened by the crisis caused by the COVID-19. Record shops and places where you can listen to vinyl records are slowly disappearing from the world. But the music will never stop. In the first issue, we will introduce the appeal of 5 cool cafes and bars in Japan that let you listen to vinyl records such as Jazz, Soul, R&B, and Rock with a super audio system.
