Japan moto suggestions?

Over the summer, I'll be spending a month in Japan. About a week in Tokyo, a couple weeks in Nagano, and about half a week in Kyoto. I'm not planning on riding during this trip, but may do so during trips in future years. On the upcoming trip, however, I would like to visit some sugoi or kakui moto places. One I would love to visit is Steve's Motorcycle Supply. He's done some very good work on some very good motos. But, he's on Kyushu! Too bad. Anyway, I would appreciate your suggestions for places and items, focusing on the Tokyo and Nagano areas. Maybe I can pick up some special items not available in the States! Arigato.

Ueno is the place.

Thanks, Ed. I did some research and, indeed, Ueno has the Korin-cho Motorcycle Neighbourhood on my Lonely Planet Japan guide book. I can't wait to spend a day or so in Ueno checking out the 'hood, the traditional market, the Saigo Takamori statue, and the Tokyo National Museum! I'll post any finds here, after I come back.

Korin-cho is cool.

Here's my report.
