In 1979, SONY debuted the WALKMAN®, introducing to the world a new way to enjoy high-quality music, anywhere, anytime. To celebrate the WALKMAN 40th anniversary, SONY has opened an exhibition in Tokyo’s Ginza district. The “#009 WALKMAN IN THE PARK 40 years since the day the music walked” exhibition focuses on the people for whom the WALKMAN has been a part of their everyday life. 

For us old enough to not only remember, but also used, the SONY WALKMAN®, this portable cassette player was the “thing” in the 80s. I had a red SONY WALKMAN® which I bought in 1985 or 1986 and I used it till it broke… I really like that SONY celebrate the WALKMAN 40th anniversary. That makes me truly nostalgic and happy.
