Cut a long story short, I had to be somewhere close-ish to Japan for about 10 days, circumstances changed and 10 days became way too long, so I rerouted part of it for a quick trip to Tokyo.

A quick snippet into cars that still roam Tokyo… no general ‘Tourist’ Photos…

Ok here goes!

Arriving at my hotel and out in the evening for a walk I see this immaculate 280ZX parked outside…

W463 Gen 1 G63 AMG… These seem to be quite popular, saw quite a few cruising around…

Later in the Night, my Tokyo based friend organised one of her friends to take us for a drive around. He didn’t speak a word of English, but from the translating, he used to take part in “illegal drifting” with a JZX100 and got in trouble a few too many times, and now is slightly grown up and prefers the comfort of a straight piped V8 M3.

Headed along the Wangan – it was pretty cool seeing all “JDM” in “JDM” doing “JDM” things. FDs, R33’s R35s. EK9’s & DC2R’s seemed quite popular patrolling the wangan that night…

So anyway, abit of a bummer… turned up at Daikoku PA, and police had just pretty much cleared people out, so I got the hell outta there, next stop Tatsumi PA. It was closed because of Road works… Next stop, a less well known Parking Area, Shibaura PA. I *think* its the only PA accessible by train as well.. Anyway it was relatively full….

All pics handheld. Came out well! Was a pretty dim park…

By this time, Jet Lag was getting me, so I got dropped back for a mega sleep… With promises of more future trip missions…

Carry on…

Isuzu Type 117 Coupe…

Toyota Century doing what it was designed for in the financial district…

Lexus LC500. These are quite popular with the high end tuner crowd. A few spotted making rounds of Shibaura but could not find a park so I couldn’t get any static shots…

Big tyre Merc SUV thing…

‘Sporty’ sounds GT86
