The quality and range of bikes being built in Japan today is very impressive. Here is a partaial list of Japanese frame builders. There are probably a few you were not familiar with. Most of these are links, a few are just shots of frames. There are a few that need links if you can provide them. I'll add to this list today and in the future.
Arrow (Nice city bikes)
Baramon (Scroll down for the detail shots.)
CS Cherubim (One of the best)
Crafted (Nice workmanship and an interesting site with photos of cyclo touring.)
Hirose (A true constructuer and some lovely city bikes. Explore this site)
Kalavinka (Who also makes my favorite lugs.)
Lightning (very cool)
Nagasawa (Possibly the best frame builder working today.)
Toei (One of the worlds great builders)
Toyo (the folks who may build our production frames.) And you must see this!
