Could someone recommend a rust proofer that I can put into my frame.
What kind should I get and where can I get it from in Tokyo.
Also,since I've been using my bike for a year in all conditions would it be OK just to add the stuff retroactively without doing anything else to the frame?

Just add it and then forget about it. Your frame won't rust out for another 25 years.

BOESHIELD is the best - and the CRC product is based somewhat on that. I use both. Just pulled my 27yo bike out of storage - it was Boeshield treated about 25yrs ago - no internal rusting at all and just some surface scaling on the chrome plated fork parts. I'm so lazy, I didn't even bother to flush it out - just sprayed another dose in the tubes. SHould be good until well after I'm dead.
