    Heading there on business and will have Saturday to sightsee. Can you recommend a few stores I should hit? Probably will not buy anything, but would love to see the legendary quality up close. Particularly Shinki. Thx.

    Depending on how much free time you have-
    My 1st choice would be Harajuku. You will find Real McCoy's, Freewheelers, Smart Clothing, Orgueil, Attractions, Jelado etc. You will find mostly the brands' main stores there. There are also some famous vintage stores like Marvins and Berberjin. You will also find Schott and Lewis Leather. The area is huge and it takes time to walk say from Freewheelers on one end to Real McCoy's on the other.
    2nd choice is Ueno. Ueno is where the dealers are, so each shop normally carries a number of brands. You can find almost all the Japanese brands just by going into 2 of them Hinoya and Americaya 610. Great place to go if your time is limited cos the more interesting stores are packed into just two shopping lanes under the railway.
    3rd choice is Ebisu. It is a mostly residential area where you can find Toys McCoy, Jelado and Langlitz. Although Toys and Langlitz are pretty close, Jelado is on the other side. Ebisu's Jelado is bigger than Harajuku's and it has a small roomful of leather stuffs from Fine Creek and Rainbow Country.
    There are also a few leather shops like Tenjin, Gorilla and Addict Clothes in Tokyo that you may visit depending on your interest.

    Wow, thanks guys. I just read the Golden Ratio write-up on their website. I am totally digging the philosophy. I will try to visit Ueno and see as much as I can.

    I was going to chime in, but I can't really add to what @Blackadder said. The only one I would add is Mushmans which has their own brand made by Electric Leather Studio along with Rainbow Country, but that's a big more out of the way.
