Aloha Japan PT 3 – Automotive Heaven CH 3

Earlier this month, we stretched the meaning of island hopping a little bit and hopped from Hawaii over to Japan!  My Instagram (@yaeantho) has been a sneak peak of our travel diaries, but below is Part 3 – Automotive Heaven…don’t forget to check out my other 2 posts Aloha Japan Part 1 – Offset Kings Japan 2014 and Part 2 – Tourists’ Dream!

Our friends Taryn and Pedey from Speedhunters just posted Secrets Of The Japanese Car Scene…so I’m going to borrow some words from their introduction “Japan can seem like a magical, make-believe dream world, filled with all the automotive gems and treasures that your wildest dreams might conjure up for you if you’re lucky.  Dreams filled with…scenes out of the Tokyo Drift and Wangan Midnight movies. Well, I’m here to tell you that’s exactly what Japan’s car culture is like. If you know where in Japan to find it, that is…”  To contrast their exclusive insider view, my post will cover some of the more accessible aspects of this Automotive Heaven!

WARNING…100+ photos, but but split into 4 chapters…so don’t forget to slow down for some sporadic words and click the link at the bottom for the continued post! ;)

Chapter 3…there is just too much awesomeness at the Toyota Mega Web in Odaiba!  In addition to being home to a shopping mall and car dealership, the Mega Web is also home to a large collection of classic Japanese cars in the the History Garage…

…History Garage for ants? :P

…toy store for big kids :D

…lounge area

…and if that wasn’t enough awesomeness, there’s even a full garage for in house restorations!

Chapter 1 > Chapter 2 > Chapter 3 > CHAPTER 4 HERE!
