Thank you Kashima-san for sharing these with us.
Both in Osaka, the upper picture is of the Matsubara complex and although these buildings are mostly gone it is still the area in which Kashima Saddle is today.
The lower picture is in Abeno. The left group of buildings are now all houses but the right side smaller group of 3 buildings are still there. We added the "Kashimax" labels on the tops of the buildings to make it clearer.
Coming this summer 2015

Screamin' Wheels Old School BMX
If you ever come to Tokyo and are a true old schooler - this is a place you should visit. Inoue-san owns the shop and its like going back in time once entered. Really cool place, I could spent all day there (and have).
Here's their website: screamin' wheels
Lots of mint old school bikes and many survivors. These guys here know all there is to know about Japan made frames, especially Kuwaharas.
