Toyo are still very much around but much smaller then decades ago when they built frames for many American brands.
Quite a few njs builder will build anything. I was in cherubim shop in Tokyo last year, the workmanship is incredible.
Kualis is very nice...
There is also Equilibrium Cycle Works which looks promising:
Good for you, I'm very envious :-) If still going, Yu Takais’ Sunrise Cycles does some pretty impressive work.
Toei make some beautiful rando bikes. Very traditional mind you...
