Buying a bike in Tokyo

I'm looking to buy a hybrid bike for local and medium distance rides in and around Tokyo. I'm a bit of a cheapskate so I'm just wondering if anyone can suggest the minimum amount of yen I should be spending to get something reliable and that looks cool. Brands and shops would also be welcome.

Help for Article and Life Vlog - Cycling Laws; What Do You Know? (Plus sub-questions)

Okay, so I fully intend to research this myself too. I'm in the process of putting together a life vlog based on cycling, which will also have an article posted on here. However, I would like some public answers, comments, and experiences, that I would love to read out on the vlog and quote in the article. So here are the questions. 1) What cycling laws did you already know about? 2) What cycling laws did you find out about? 3) What do you like most about cycling here in Japan? 4) What do you like the least? 5) What is the most frustrating? 6) What is the worst/scariest/dangerous experience you've had on a bicycle here? So for example, the other day I was cycling along the footpath, but my most frustrating thing to experience is pedestrians walking all over, some with their head in the phones. I had to swerve in and out of them because they were not paying attention, I found a space and cycled for 10 more seconds or so when suddenly a pedestrian shot around the corner right in front of me. I swerved to avoid collision and nearly got hit by a taxi. Shortly after that, my heart pounding and nerves shot, focus almost lost, I nearly got hit by a reversing van.
