Bike Shops or Bike Shop District in Tokyo

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Bike Shops or Bike Shop District in Tokyo

Next week (December 10th) I have a business trip to Tokyo. I would love to check out some bicycle shops while I am there. It would be great to get a jersey or some other souvenir. I know Tokyo has districts for different things: electronics, fashion, motorcycles. Is there a bicycle district? Does anyone have a favorite bike shop in Tokyo?

Ride Safe,

Joe

All-City has been on a tour of Japan for the past week or so. They've been posting pictures of some cool-looking shops on Instagram, but I don't remember which ones are in Tokyo. Could be worth a look: https://www.instagram.com/allcitycycles/

A good list! I'll add East River Cycles in Sumida. There's also a chain called Y's Road that has locations all over the place, sometimes with some good cheap finds.
