Even the drive there and back was rather scenic. It still amazes me how far the city extends, turning into warehouse districts, then back into high rises and sky scrapers. On the way back, we drove past the Fuji TV building. Didn't get a good photo, but I've wanted to see it (it was in a bunch of those cartoons I watched as a kid).

|They let me help out in the shop.|
|Rew10 and Cook Paint Works.|
One of their staff members, Naoto, was nice enough to show me around town. I had the opportunity to see some sides of town, I wouldn't have found as a tourist. We met up at the Tsukiji fish market in the morning, grabbed some food, explored some hole-in-the-wall coffee shops, and rode around town. We had a great lunch at Lug, Blue Lug's cafe & bar. After that, we stopped by to see Rew10 workshop and Cook Paint Works next door. They both do amazing work. After a busy day riding around town, we went out for okonomiyaki, seafood pancakes and takoyaki, octopus balls.
