Looking for music CD stores for Japanese artists

Hi experts,

Will be in Tokyo in few weeks and are looking for CD stores which sells new CD (for gifts). We have friends that are interested in some of the Japanese artists and we can't get them in the states.

On Sundays near Yoyogi, there are many trucks that drive by promoting new bands or artiste with their release dates. You can catch those info on where they actually release their new albums if you can read Japanese fast enough.
