"Rock" has played a big role in our major music culture since 1950, evolving with the time.

n order to make Shibuya, one of the most popular music districts in the world, a center of rock culture, diskunion has opened a record shop specializing in rock music.

The 290m2 shop stocks over 50,000 items, including new and used records, CDs, music books and even music drinks.

The store also features a permanent pop-up space and a special in-store live performance space.

In the shop, events are held in a permanent pop-up space.

The pop-up space changes its contents every two to three weeks. Due to the corona outbreak, we are not holding any events at the moment, but we are considering holding live concerts and DJ events for 50-100 people in the future. You never know, you might be in for a surprise!
