Yellow Pop, Shimokitazawa
Several shops are named “Yellow Pop” in Japan (in different parts of Tokyo) but they are not necessarily related.
The one in Shimo-Kitazawa (at the crossing of the Inokashira and Odakyu lines) was opened in 1980 and is run by Masanori Sato.
In this nice and spacious store, at the street level close to the station, Sato-san sells a catalogue of about 10,000 refs, in all music genres. Some good cheapies, too.
He does not travel abroad so much, so you will find a lot a Japanese original editions.
You can check out his blog, but you will have to read Japanese…
