Another Daikoku Topic


Recommended Posts

Hey, so my gf & I will be in Japan from the end of the month & in Tokyo on Fri & Sat 3rd 4th June. I really really want to get to Daikoku.

We tried booking a driver from our hotel but because it isn't an 'official event' they politely 'declined our request'. It seems a taxi would be quite expensive, and a ruturn trip hard to organise. Even worse would be forking out for a taxi if it didn't really go off on one of the nights....

Just wondering if anyone on here is a local in Tokyo & goes there regularly would be interested in helping us out on either the Friday or Saturday or both nights?

We would be happy to offer beer/food/money for a lift & some local knowlwdge.

Any other info/help would be greatly appreciated :cheers:

heys i was there earlier this year during the TAS period and was able to get there using this guide http://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/110207-directions-daikoku-futo.html

Basically take the train to Ishikawa-cho station and then taxi it from there. A few tips:

Tip 1: keep asking taxi drivers one after another until one can get you there.

Tip 2: get there contact number so you can call them to pick you up or else how else you going to get back?

Tip 3: Aim to get back to the station well before 12am as the trains will stop and you'll be stranded.

Tip 4: It always helps to have someone who can speak a little jap with you

Btw the taxi fee from that station isn't too bad cos its pretty close

    • Haha, I’ll just have to do both… I’ll be upgrading the Skoda Kodiaq work car eventually..
    • I'm not sure if this helps or not. I recently upgraded to R34 Vspec2 Brembo's on the S2 Stag. I used this braided kit: https://safebrake.biz/home/292-skyline-gt-r-r34-awd-26tt-brake-upgrade-safebrake-performance-hoses.html Beyond this I got the R33gtr front brake hard lines, that go over axle hub just behind the dust plate and all lined up beautifully.  The braided lines were same length as the stock ones. Needed to buy 2x longer bolts for one of the hard mount points for the braided hoses up the front. Trim rear dust shields so could fit 322mm discs. It's a pretty straight forward job.   ps. the r33gtr hard brake lines have the flare nut so should bolt straight into your callipers.
    • Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has changed their stock front upper /  inner control arm bushes for nolathane and has any advice on doing so? See pic circled in red with the bushes im referring to. Can I do it myself? ie. with an air chisel and a suitable sized/diameter socket on the end. Or is it a hydraulic press job? I've already done the outside bushes, the originals popped of easy with the air chisel as they had a little lip to get some purchase on. Cheers, Pete    
    • Mate, great looking R33!  It's not too late to go European and spend your days talking about how you went from v1.01 to v1.03 of your Stage 1.5 tune and now you can bake off the line holding your chai latte without spillage. 🥲 I feel you're at the point of no return now, brace yourself!  
    • I have a Toyota Estima hybrid AHR20 2013. The diffrential arm bushing need replacing. The OEM differential arm part number is 52380-28050. Please let me know if you know anyone who can supply or supply and install the differential arm bushing. I have asked Febest Auto Parts, Auto-Parts and Auto Plus Parts, without any luck. Thank you in advance for any relevant information.
