    I went to Tokyo a few years ago and did a bit of research beforehand on the areas to find bike shops. You will find all searches direct you to an area called Ueno, normally with a suffix of Motorcycle District.

    I visited the area hoping to find all the main dealers with all the latest models in their showrooms but was hugely underwhelmed - I thought I was in the wrong place at first. Not one dealership represented, just a few secondhand places, some accessory shops catering for the Harley mob and not a great deal else. This article gives a fairly accurate idea of what you can expect:

    I bought a visor for a Shoei helmet which was not outrageously priced but found that prices and stock at bike shops in cities I subsequently visited in the US to be better.
