Next month I'm going back to Japan to visit the in-laws. They're good people, so I'm really looking forward to it.
While there, I will be frequenting several flea markets, bazaars, and perhaps a few woodworking/DIY stores. I'm hoping to buy some old Japanese planes, chisels and other tools.
What I'm hoping is that some of you fellas can offer me suggestions for brand names to look for as well as what types of planes and chisels to go for. It'll also be great if any of you happen to know of any stores I can visit (Tokyo Hands is already on the list)...
