We found this place by walking around the neighborhood West of Shinjuku station (where all the interesting record shops are located). Mr. Yoshiwara opened up in 1984 and has been specialized in new productions from foreign labels (that he buys directly or thru distributors). The catalog offers 3 to 4 000 references, all new, 60% CDs 40%LPs.
Punk, garage, rock, rockabilly, soul,… you can find it all.
No Japanese production in sight. The records come from the USA of course, but quite a lot from indie European labels as well (Holland, Germany,…).
Website is only in Japanese, but as always you can try your luck sending email in English…
