Aloha Japan Part 3 – Automotive Heaven

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! ;)

We started our adventures at Fuji Speedway for Motor Games 2014, which not only included Offset Kings Japan 2014 but also the World Time Attack Challenge and Formula Drift.  To see more from the paddock, check out Mark’s photos and words.

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