ninniku here from Japan (well not originally) to soak up all your knowledge. I will return the favor, if desired, with stranger-in-a-strange-land anecdotes!
For example, the other day I ordered my spicy burger to-go, and they gave it to me on a tray. Weird, huh?

Hello ninniku, welcome to Bike Forums. You've got some soaking up to do... What kind of bikes are you interested in?
At present, I'm interested in single speed/fixed, but really, I'm just excited to live in a relatively flat city and have a commute long enough to warrant a decent bike.
What part of Tokyo? I used to live in Setagaya-ku near the Tamagawa.
