I just realised that I haven't posted up my Japan photo diaries here. With another trip coming up soon I thought I best start from the beginning.

Firstly, the photos from my December 2009 trip:

I've kept the pics to the bare minimum for the story but those on slower connections might want to go grab a cup of coffee.

Part 1


Finally arrived in Shinjuku at about 10pm and it was pouring rain. This was to be the theme of the Holiday really - I think I experienced all of Japan's December Rainfall during the days I visited.
Posted Image

Was quite buggered so after checking in, went down to trusty McDonalds for an Ebi Burger (Prawn Burger). I figured if I was going to eat McDonalds in Japan I may as well get something that I can't get locally, and can I just say GREAT SUCCESS! Ebi Burger is awesome! I wish we had these in Aus.

Retired back to the Hotel to watch some TV. Super Beaver, WTF? I sat and watched this in amusement for quite some time. Emo kids and some whack puppet with a funny voice.
Posted Image

Woke up the next morning nice and early ready to go collect our first hire car. The weather was thankfully much clearer.
Posted Image

We found a 24hr Cafe near to the hotel that was pretty good for fast cheap food. I opted for a Chicken Katsu Curry for breakfast. It was REALLY tasty!
Posted Image

Ventured on to pick up hire car #1, which was a Mazda Alexa (3) 4WD. Gutless and horrid but easy enough to drive around town. First stop, Chiba Super Autobacs
Posted Image

The car park was full of some pretty cool rides. I'm not sure exactly what this thing is, but I know it's a Daihatsu.
Posted Image

I really liked this R32. It was absolutely immaculate inside out.
Posted Image

Inside Autobacs was like Autobarn on steroids, and maybe acid too. There was lots of crazy stuff to buy! Unfortunately I was very limited on storage space for goodies so couldn't go ballistic in the air fresheners section like I wanted. Grabbed a few though, a couple of Hello Kitty ones too.
Posted Image

They had heaps of bling accessories for your VIP car. Some were cool but most pretty gaudy.
Posted Image

Next we headed for Crystal, took the wrong driveway though but found this beast hiding
Posted Image

Crystal, ZING! There was a tasty white JZX90 in the garage being worked on at the time.
Posted Image

I wasn't a fan of the new Work wheel design until I saw this stand. They look so hot in the satin black finish with the right size/offset to give dish and concave. Very similar to CE28N I think.
Posted Image

These ones really stole my heart though, lol.
Posted Image

This somehow found its way upstairs
Posted Image

Yes please!
Posted Image

Crystal had so many great things. Unfortunately a lot of what I wanted wasn't in stock so I came away with only a few parts.

Amongst all the crazy JDM vans you see the odd American one. This one had Watanabes I think - pimp
Posted Image

I spotted this Crown (I think?) driving past. I'm probably alone on this one but I dig 2 tone.
Posted Image

Next stop for the day was Up Garage. These guys have so much in the way of second hand parts. A few bargains amongst the lot but not much to suit my car that I don't already have. Plenty of wheels (this was about 1/3 of their collection on display)
Posted Image

Coil overs galore, cheap seats in the background
Posted Image

Exhausts
Posted Image

This turned up as we were leaving, lots of vans like this in Japan. I'm a fan.
Posted Image

Before I left, had to grab a drink for the road. Dr Pepper hell yes! The Up Garage vending machine plays music and makes broom broom noises, I like it.
Posted Image

Battled the traffic and headed back to park the car up at the hotel overnight. Went for a quiet beer near the hotel with my mate. So many great beers on tap in Japan! This HUB "english" pub had the soccer on so we dropped by. Weirdly they remove the head from the beer though. Gimme my foam back dammit!
Posted Image

Next morning I headed out to Yashio Factory to grab my pink bits for the Silvia. The workshop was pretty dead that day, a young girl and dude sat in the tiny office and that was it. They spoke no English so I relied on the very few Japanese words I know to grab the couple of parts I wanted. They had a nice 180 in pieces in the garage.
Posted Image

Afterwards, I headed to Disney Land. Was kind of boring due to lack of awesome rides but there were a few cool ones. It rained half way through the day so everyone rushed for the shops. Couldn't buy much merchandise due to the human crush happening inside.
Posted Image

Pepper Lunch was conveniently located near my hotel. I love Pepper Lunch!

Part 2

Sunday, Nismo Festival Day. We headed out nice and early for Fuji Speedway.

Here are a few of my favourite pics, there are many more (especially of car park cars) I will post into their own gallery on my webspace later when I have more time.

Maybe if I press some buttons.......... hmm nope... JDM Nav FTL. Luckily we had our own Navman with us which saved our asses many a time
Posted Image

This was a hint that we were heading in the right direction
Posted Image

The amount of nice cars that came flying by was crazy. Even a white NSX-R! I think my friend managed to grab a few more pics - I was on the wrong side of the car and it was too cold to hang out the window.

Mt Fuji was a good indicator we were going the right way. This Lancia HF Integrale was awesome! A girl driving it too, and she wasn't shy about giving it stick. Very quick little car.
Posted Image

Ding ding ding! We have a winner
Posted Image

Nice M35 Stagea
Posted Image

There were many car parks and all full of gold. I took a few quick snaps on the way in of the cars near ours. These two GTRs were very tastefully done
Posted Image

Old school love
Posted Image
Posted Image

A white Toyota Century. Only saw maybe 2 of these while in Japan, compared to hundreds of black ones.
Posted Image

This was probably my favourite 350Z of the day. Was truly beautiful in the flesh.
Posted Image

R31House had so many great examples on display - both on their stand and out the back in the parking lot behind. This wagon was tits - although it was hard to get a good pic of it.
Posted Image
Posted Image

The sticker on the front guard says it all
Posted Image

I spied another hot wagon behind the R31House stand.
Posted Image

This pipe near the rear wheel is interesting.......
Posted Image

Bad ass transporter
Posted Image

HKS had this beast on their stand. It was immaculate and had some really tasteful mods I could only dream of being able to afford.
Posted Image

Gran Turismo fans might recognize this DR30
Posted Image

This thing was so loud when they started it up I thought I was going deaf.
Posted Image

The Godfather. Hako!

One of my favourite touring cars of all time - the Calsonic R32
Posted Image

JGTC cars make our V8 Supercars look like a joke. They are so awesome in every way. Seeing them out on track was a true delight.
Posted Image

I was too fat for many of these seats. True story.
Posted Image

Rays reppin fluro pink rims on their stand
Posted Image

INGS 370Z was very tidy. Subtle appearance ftw
Posted Image

This R33 had me salivating....
Posted Image

...as did this R32
Posted Image

March (Micra) cup cars look like fun.
Posted Image

For the Honda fans, a proper Civic Type R. Nice brakes.
Posted Image

There were a few Z Tune R34 GT-Rs on display as you'd expect - including this one, the original Nismo Omori Factory Z-Tune Concept car.
Posted Image

Hearing these four cars roaring around was great
Posted Image

I think most of the 350Z S-Tune population came to visit
Posted Image

There were quite a lot of 400Rs present, here's a couple
Posted Image

Even Nismo 270R's made an appearance
Posted Image


More carpark hotness...

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Mad vans
Posted Image

This is what's left of a 270R
Posted Image

Saw a few Evo wagons. I like them, something different.
Posted Image

Queen St branching out to Japan?
Posted Image

Even a Smart ForFour can't escape modification in Japan
Posted Image

Hardtop ftw
Posted Image

Didn't get to take pics in all the car parks, I left it a bit late and a lot of cars had left by the time I got there.

Heading home we cruised alongside a real tasty FC3S

Part 3

Ok so next day I dropped back that nugget Mazda Alexa and decided to keep it real with the trusty JR Yamanote line
Posted Image

First hit up Shibuya then walked through to Harajuku
Posted Image

Hit up Burberry Black
Posted Image

And Burberry Blue
Posted Image

lol @ this store.. apart from my curious mates the store was filled with school girls for some reason :O
Posted Image

Kiddy Land - Home of the Pedo Bear
Posted Image

These things were leet, they link together to dance together. At about $25 each though, bit hefty
Posted Image

LV had pretty lights... heaps of levels of stuff too
Posted Image

Harajuku weirdos aren't there 24/7 unfortunately.. boo
Posted Image

Anyways, next day I took a Taxi ride. This guy was a legend. I gave him the address in Japanese and I knew it was near by but it took him some time to find where it was (the Japanese street system is farked, most aren't named, it works off a grid system) Eventually he turned off the meter which had me worried but he ended up charging us only the basic fare!! Great guy!
Posted Image

Arrived at destination..
Posted Image

Well well well what do we have here
Posted Image

While waiting for the keys I browsed the magazines in the waiting room, check this out
Posted Image

Hit the road
Posted Image

Need supplies... Apple Fanta is mad. Grape Fanta still rules though.
Posted Image

Pedo Bear's cousin got his face on a lollipop made of chocolate
Posted Image

Jumped back in and set the GPS for Mt Fujis co-ordinates. Tunnels are cool..
Posted Image

Roads getting a little more interesting
Posted Image

Had a refresher stop then jumped back in...
Posted Image
Posted Image

In case you can't see the sat nav above here's a crop
Posted Image

Didn't take any pics for a while..........

........

Time for some KFC
Posted Image

Rocked up to some random park
Posted Image

Nice view
Posted Image

Park was really nice and peaceful. Heaps of Koi in the water
Posted Image

Sun setting.. time to hit the road again
Posted Image

Smelled this place from a mile away, just had to stop
Posted Image

Yah
Posted Image

Lots of confusion later and it was on like donkey kong

Fuelled up... hit the road again.. landed at Daikoku Futo
Posted Image

Was a quiet night, not much there but lots of nice cars came and went that I didn't get pics of.

I heard this car coming long before I saw it... external gate roaring! It had a massive turbo. T88 I think.
Posted Image
(excuse the shit blurry pic)

Headed home and parked up for the night
Posted Image

Few spots down there was another one
Posted Image

Next day when I returned to Premium Rent they had this waiting.. bit out of my budget :P

Posted Image

These ads were EVERYWHERE, I want a version up phone dammit!
Posted Image

Took the Shinkansen to Osaka
Posted Image

Found this awesome store right under the hotel at the train station. It smelled wonderful.
Posted Image

So this is what you do - grab a box of them waffles, then go to AM/PM to grab a couple of cans of Asahi and some tubs of Haagen-Daas ice cream. Win.
Posted Image

Went to the Aquarium
Posted Image

It's pretty cool you go up like 8 levels or so and start off in a Rainforest type arrangement where you can see all sorts of things like otters and crabs, then you decend downwards into deeper waters.
Posted Image

These things were huge, I want one for my fish tank
Posted Image

The glass was dirty as, but I took a pic anyway - King Penguins! They are massive, and kick ass.
Posted Image

Superfunhappy Dolphin Rides?
Posted Image

Whale Shark Hungry... nom nom nom
Posted Image

Spider Craaab, Spider Craaaaab
Posted Image

Slanty Shanty
Posted Image

Osaka Castle. Nice outside, good parks, bad ass motes, but inside is a bit lame since it's just like a museum and not built to replicate its original state of awesome.
Posted Image

Next hotel I stayed at in Tokyo was more luxurious. Don't f**k with Robo-Toilet. This panel flipped down to even more buttons.

Posted Image

Spa Bath and separate shower! WIN
Posted Image

Random
Posted Image

Tokyo Tower doesn't look very impressive, it's small as
Posted Image

Evo Pajero

The following pics are from my short break in Japan in June 2011...

1. Caught the Airport Limousine Bus from Narita, I definitely prefer this to the Train.
Posted Image

2. OK WTF. Our hotel room this time has a Window between the Bedroom and Bathroom. Why on earth would you need this? I can only imagine it's some sort of Japanese Pervert design feature. Thankfully it also had a blind.
Posted Image

3. Went to a random Tempura Stick place in Shinjuku on the first night. It's called Dan-Dan-Ya I think. So awesome. Yebisu Beer on tap, we smashed it down like no tomorrow.
Posted Image

4. The Japanese guys next to us were awesome, they drank with us until the place closed. We won, by the way, because oldmate started falling asleep at the table. We went back to this place again on our last night there and the staff were so excited to see us! Stayed again until closing time.
Posted Image

5. Shitty weather for most of my time there. Rain just wouldn't go away. GG Wet season
Posted Image

6. Sushi Train time
Posted Image

7. Harajuku
Posted Image

8. Rich Kids
Posted Image

9. Yakitori time!
Posted Image

10. I think I've had enough random Chicken organs to last me a while.
Posted Image

11. Freshly made Chicken Karaage was SO good
Posted Image

12. Hired a Cube and went on an adventure. Decided to head towards Mt Hakone despite the heavy rain.
Posted Image

13. Detoured into some back roads
Posted Image
Posted Image

14. Arrived at our destination, so foggy
Posted Image

15. There was supposed to be a nice view
Posted Image

16. Streams of hot water
Posted Image

17. Yep, the smell certainly was unpleasant.
Posted Image

18. We stopped at what I can only describe as JDM McDonalds. Place was packed with families, food was pretty average. Sushi Train was amazing though! You can order from the touch screen above, and your order will come out on a separate train type thing which is just below the screen. Below that is the normal Sushi Train.
Posted Image

19. You put your plates down the chute and it totals your bill. Hot tea from the tap at your convenience.
Posted Image

20. Random P.A. in the middle of the mountains
Posted Image

21. Expressway Cruisin
Posted Image

22. Dramatic Mountains
Posted Image

23. More expressway Cruisin. I love the roads in Japan.
Posted Image

24. Nissan English GPS was GREAT!

Posted Image

26. Vending corner has everything you could possibly want. Except for Grape Fanta. And Dr Pepper. Grrr....
Posted Image

27. Hangin' at Daikoku Futo P.A. waiting for the cool cars to arrive. There used to be a McDonalds here but it's gone now! Damn.. had to sit around outside instead.
Posted Image

28. Nice n Simple. I like.
Posted Image

29. Dumped Hiace
Posted Image

30. Lots of Kei Cars came and went with various quirky modifications
Posted Image

31. lol
Posted Image

32. As stupid as it did look, the kids loved it.
Posted Image

33. Celsior Hard Parkin' JDM Style
Posted Image
Posted Image

34. Just needs some lower suspension
Posted Image

35. lol
Posted Image

36. Think this was a 328 or 330 judging from the exhaust note. Definitely wasn't turbo and wasn't an M3. Sounded pretty nice.
Posted Image

37. Lots of Corolla Wagons. That little nugget Civic got beached on the speed humps leaving, what a laugh. He had to get a bit of speed up and launch over them.
Posted Image

38. 7 Series pimpin
Posted Image

39. Strange Z
Posted Image

40. Scooby Doo
Posted Image

41. This guy actually did a pretty neat job with his LED's. Could see it from a mile away.
Posted Image

Posted Image

43. Vans are not for moving people

48. Fat Cima was one of my favourites
Posted Image
Posted Image

49. Nice S15
Posted Image
Posted Image

50. Bagged
Posted Image

51. This Aristo had a bit of American style about it I reckon.
Posted Image
Posted Image

52. This guy obviously likes Batman. I don't know how the hell this thing even stays on the road.
Posted Image
Posted Image

53. These guys battled it out all night with their super loud stereo systems. For those playing at home, the Odyssey had 8x 15" Kicker L7's in there (the round ones are just for show). It's no wonder the car has a few SPL competition awards, the thing shook the place bigtime!
Posted Image

54. Nice JZX100 Mark II. Needs a bit better offset though.
Posted Image

55. Chaser
Posted Image

56. Another Cima
Posted Image

57. This Celsior looked pretty mean
Posted Image

58. Plenty of new WRX parked together
Posted Image

59. and a GC8 for good measure
Posted Image

60. Another nice Chaser. Sounded angry - not sure of engine setup.
Posted Image
Posted Image

61. Not sure what model Honda this is
Posted Image

62. Presidential Style.
Posted Image

63. Lasers! Smoke Machines! This thing could deliver a rave anywhere you like.

Posted Image

65. Viper GTS. Filthy as.

Awesome photos mate. Glad I didnt see the fish in pic 83 when I was at Tsukiji: Dojou - a type of loach, they keep them as pets as well as eat them. Poor little fellas. Try the rice burgers at MOS burger they are awesome, way better than the normal burgers. Messy though. The Daihatsu kei car in the 6th photo is a Move (3rd gen).

OK, I'm back - didn't take many photos this time around due to a few reasons, mainly because I did a lot of shopping which isn't interesting photo material and also because the weather was mostly crap. So I've edited the non-interesting ones for something different. Wish I could have taken more than 1 week off work.

Mazda's current design themes are incredible, photos do the designs no justice.

I get the feeling that this is the eco-Z of the future

BRZ was impressive but the perverts loved the chick more

Subaru need to build this without applying ugly stick
Posted Image

BRZ wheels and ride height suck. I liked GT-86 version better
Posted Image

Merc A Class concept looked quite sharp
Posted Image

VW Bulli was very creative, the interior is very functional

According to Daihatsu the car of the future is a box
Posted Image

Shibuya as busy as ever
Posted Image

Daibutsu (The Great Buddha) very impressive, worth the drive. Said my prayers, here's hoping 2012 is a better year
