Japan living, autos, and photos

Okinawa for a week.

I decided to take a vacation to Okinawa, an island section south of Japan mainland, with my wife for a week. Well, sort of with her. She is down here for work, and I decided to tag along since i always wanted to go down here. So we flew in on Sunday, and I haven’t really been able to do too much since I didn’t get a rental car yet. However today was a different story. Bret (FDokinawa) From Zeroyon forum was a great guy and picked me up this morning, pretty early mind you, and took me around the island for sightseeing. I had a fantastic time and cant thank him enough for the awesome thing he did for me. So here are the vital pics for the day.

First stop was an awesome castle. The climb was rough in my new shoes, but it was worth it. So surreal. They were doing maintenance on it while we were there. My guess was they were fixing walls and other structures since they were chipping away at rock.

I think the coolest thing was this go-kart track he took me too. Apparently they race mopeds, bikes, and karts there. CRAZZZZZZZY knee dragging on a moped.

Tokyo Auto Salon

This year Gaijin Drift was nice enough to let me be a contributing photographer for the coverage of the yearly Tokyo Auto Salon. If you have no clue what it is, basically this show is the Japanese version of SEMA in the US, however open to the public. There were a TON of 370z, Evo, STi, and the obligatory overhyped GT-R.

Among the 370Zs, these caught my eye.
