I am visiting Japan on the 20th for a week and wanted to go parts shopping.
Can anyone tell me where is good to visit for 2nd hand performance parts please?
I will also like to visit Super Autobacs and "Crystal?", unsure of locations.

Thanks!

Loz.

depends where you are....UPGarage is about the best place for used parts in my neck of woods (Yamanashi), but I'm sure there's something better in the Tokyo area :)

Dave, are you likely to be in the Tokyo region over the period of 20th-27th?
If you are, would you like to meet up with a few Skyline Owners from UK for beer?
How far (on train/taxi) is Yamanashi from Tokyo please mate? Desperate for some bargains!

Faz, I'll get tons of pictures don't worry :)

RADIATOR?! No way!

ECU, Injectors, Turbo's perhaps !?

Yahoo auctions beats everyone IMO. Cheapest prices
Though I do like Up Garage and Parts off as well. They are just kind of "hit" and "miss"

Will definately have to swing by UpGarage then as I wanted to get down to see T.S.

HyRev, we'll be staying at Hotel Matsushima in Minowa, near Ueno.

Thanks for your suggestions, are you free over the week chap?

UpGarage, I have discovered has many stores all over Japan, wondering what which has proved the best on others' visits? Ideally one that isn't too far (45mins max on train/cab) from Tokyo/Minowa Area
