There are many dealers in Tokyo, but these two I have personal experience with and trust.

Thanks for including me, I have to say however that my activity as a dealer is rather small.

I'm not familiar with the dealers there, but it might be helpful to know why you want to know. In the US I would recommend entirely different people if you were 
tire-kicking expensive instruments (which? violin, viola, cello?), no intent to buy
actually buying expensive instruments, money in hand
looking for new makers
needing a repair or adjustment
looking for a mid-range instrument
looking for a fun time, good conversation.

For these, my recommendations would be completely different here, depending on which you wanted.

I'm mostly looking for people to buy from/sell to nice violins and people to have a nice conversation with, so the normal wheeling and dealing. I'm quite unfamiliar with this market as opposed to the North American one.
