Joseph's Walkman (ジョセフのウォークマン Josefu no Wōkuman) is a reoccurring device that is featured at the end of every part where Joseph Joestar is present.

Joseph is first seen with the Sony Walkman while boarding a plane to Tokyo at the end of Battle Tendency, listening to something by The Beatles.[1][2] In Stardust Crusaders, he inserts a Get Back cassette into the player,[3][4] and in Diamond is Unbreakable, he upgrades to a MiniDisc Walkman.[5]
