Hi All,
Just thought I would post up some pics of my stay in Japan. I lived in f*kuyama, Hiroshima for a year.
I did a bit of travelling around and got heaps of pics. Excuse my camera work, I'm not too good at it and my camera is a
bit old...

AutoSalon 06 was really enjoyable, I was on a budget so went by local train which took 13hours (seasonal ticket, only 2500yen return) and stayed in internet cafe's for 3 nights. Not the highlight of the trip but 4 days in Tokyo cost me 11000yen including food, trains, accom(if you call it that).

I will be heading back with my girlfriend next year and plan is to live there for 2 or 3 years.

Hope you enjoy the pics, if you want more let me know, I have about 3000 of them.

This is what I got my brother for his birthday. It was in a small hobby shop, cost me about $250 but worth
every $. Dont see too many of these for sale anymore.

This is why I am about 10kg's heavier than when I arrived there. Krispy Kreme has nothing!

A mate and I were riding to the shops when we saw this. How often do you see a 70's model car with
Convo pro's that are about 14" wide? The guy was stoked, he was holding the traffic up so we could take pics.

Just been restored and getting towed to the owners place. Bit rare in Japan

Good wording for a cafe. haha

It didnt say how much this car weighed but it wouldn't be much. Good looking car too...

In summer this was the best place to be. Was about a 40 min ride from my house

With the dollar the way it is you should start planning it. I would recommend it to anyone, not just the cars
but the country aswell, real eye openner.
I think AutoSalon was great because there was a big variety of cars--- however I would have loved to have seen
a dyno there. I know it would be a logistical nightmare but- how good would it be to see Top Secret and some of the
big guns that we see on DVD's punch out some numbers.

Post more pics soon

I would love to have a steer of one of these, I watched a DVD with Ayrton Senna testing one around Suzuka
and it was pretty inspiring.

This store was packed with Jap Car Models. It had almost any car that you could think of and the price was pretty good.

If anyone wants to check out my car, go to Projects- 10 Sec MRD ET
And Karl's 200SX is another more serious car that my brother and I built, we owned a performance shop in Victoria before I went to Japan.

I have lost a CD that has lots of my photo's, when I find it I'll put some more up
