Retro Workshop 1/2

Embarking on a search for upgarage and  autobacs second hand stores is the perfect excuse to pack the bike and head to an area far off the tourist maps.

Due to the huge density of the main cities (Tokyo: 5,751 persons per square kilometre compared to Sydney with a mere 345) there are so many things you can miss by not looking around one more corner. I left with the intention of deliberately getting lost, aimlessly walking in a place where I had absolutely no idea which way was north let alone where I had started from, and the plan worked well.
