Throughout Shenmue, Ryo can pick up Music Tapes that allow you to listen to various pieces from the game soundtrack, either the original versions or re-arrangements. Tapes can be bought in the Tomato stores for ¥300, some are found for free in various places, and other must be won in the Lucky Dip.

The tapes can be played in a number of ways:

  • Cassette player
    Found in the top drawer of Ryo's desk. Requires 2xAA batteries to operate (included). Accessible from the inventory once picked up.
  • Boom box
    The first-place prize in the Dobuita Tomato Store Lucky Dip. This stays on the desk in Ryo's room once you've won it.
  • Tom's Hotdog Stand
    Tom's truck has a boom box sitting on it that you can use to play any tapes you've collected.
