RS Aoyagi is a racing shop located in Fukuoka. Visiting the shop was quite easy as they are within a 10 minute walk from a bus stop. The part of Fukuoka the shop is located in is quite industrial and old. The infrastructure in the area, including the bus station leading to the shop looked like it was preserved from the 80s!
