If you're in the market for a shelved Japanese periodical, look no further than Waltz. Located in Nakameguro, Tokyo, this shop is known for having one of the world's best cassette and cassette player collections—but its vintage magazine shelves are the unheralded gems of this incredible store. A few years back, I picked up the October 1978 issue of men's fashion magazine Checkmate for its choice graphic design, covetable sweaters, and a tome to American fast food and snacks. We also made a playlist from the records they reviewed in this issue, which we recommend you put in on random as you surf through your week.
