Welcome to となり町, one of the biggest and most active community centered on sharing Japanese music on livejournal. While visual kei indies bands are featured the most often due to the large interest towards the said genre among Japanese music fans outside Japan, this community is by no means limited to sharing only visual kei music, but all kinds of Japanese music is more than welcome.
