    People who know their stuff are what makes Ikebe specialCompany Profile

    S ince 40 years ago, Ikebe Musical Instruments has been working with one aim in mind: putting a smile on customers' faces and enriching their artistic life through musical instruments. We have built our reputation with highly knowledgeable staff at brick-and-mortar stores, each focusing on a particular instrument category. With regard to online sales, we intend to maintain our policy of providing a wealth of information and quick response to customers' needs. In order to achieve this aim, it is essential to have dedicated staff with expertise, vision, ideas, and the ability to get things done. We concentrate on fostering these attributes in all our employees, creating a satisfying work environment where people can take the initiative and always look for ways to improve things.

    M usical instruments are not like ordinary products that simply need to be sold. After a customer buys an instrument, he or she will use it to make music and create their own sound, and possibly to record and perform. This process may require fur ther equipment and support. Therefore we see the purchase only as the start of a long relationship with the customer. And that is where the concept of trust comes in. In order to earn the trust of the customer, we must have solid knowledge in our field, which will enable us to suggest customized solutions, and we must have integrity which is the basis of human interaction. We are working hard every day in order to realize these ideals.

    R egardless of gender, age, or seniority, our staff are assigned their positions according to their actual abilities and achievements. And whenever an opinion is voiced or someone comes up with an idea, we try to evaluate and implement it on its merits, no matter who proposed it. As a company active in the field of music and instruments, we of course encourage the people in our organization to play music themselves or engage in other music related activities. We organize concerts and live events as well as the Ikebe Year End Party, thereby providing various opportunities for staff and also our suppliers to interact socially. If we want our customers to understand and love musical instruments, we must first understand and love them ourselves. This is the environment that we aim to build at Ikebe.

    The Shibuya district in Tokyo is a trendy, vibrant center of youth

    culture, fashion and entertainment that is unique in all of Asia.

    In 1983, Ikebe opened its first Shibuya-based musical instruments

    store. Since then, the number of shops specializing in various

    types of instruments has grown to 16, all within a radius of some

    50 meters (55 yards) of each other and no more than two minutes

    on foot from Shibuya station. At each store, expert staff are always

    ready to advise customers and help them make their selection from

    the enormous range of available items. Known collectively as the

    Shibuya Ikebe Musical Instruments Village, this cluster of stores is

    a dream destination for professional and amateur musicians alike.

  • T he Grandey & Jungle store features two floors, each with a distinct theme. "Jungle" on the ground level is a general guitar shop designed to introduce a wide range of customers from children to adults to the joys of this instrument, while "Grandey" in the basement features an impressive selection of top-notch guitars from famous brands. A perfect fit for the Shibuya vibe, this is one of the largest retail establishments specializing in guitars in Japan.

    O n the "Jungle" f loor, young enthusiasts can be seen to gasp with astonishment, as they

    encounter row after row of a great variety of guitars, all at amazingly affordable prices. Besides instruments, customers can also explore the widest selection of score sheets, parts, and accessories in Japan. The "Grandey" floor in the basement is a mecca for professional musicians who will appreciate its immense lineup of top-brand guitars. Many musicians are regular visitors here, conversing with the knowledgeable staff and perusing the sections dedicated to the likes of Gibson, Fender, PRS, and Ibanez, featuring hand-selected instruments from all over the world.
