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)

what should I get from Japan?

POCKY!! Those are amazing. I had a Japanese roommate in high school, and the kid would bring back the most ridiculous, amazing, delicious foods. I regret never having taken up an offer to visit him in Tokyo.

See if you can get a jockey-style keirin rider uniform:

you have to get those berry tablets that make sour things taste sweet. Apparently if you eat them then drink a guiness it tastes like a milkshake

Get off at Akihabara and just walk around. Pay close attention to stores with cartains preventing from seeing beyond. Also, pay attention to stores selling knives and sorta military stuff. Of course, there is a s3x toy store in front of the trainstation, but that's for ... p0rn you are familiar with. You should also try out some cartoon p0rn store too. It is quite fascinating to observe these stores and their customers. ... You could probably write a thesis on it.

There's a brand of bartape in Japan that's really hard to get here. The brand is called Viva.

You can get those at Super Wal Mart now, just go to the international aisle, also try the japanese Koala yummies.

I dont think I have seen any local asian markets or even real authentic Japanese restaurants use wasabi root instead of wasabi paste/powder.
