Yeah, that's about right.

Werd, I used to live in the same prefecture as that place. Did you see any monkeys in the switchbacks? Bastards are annoying as hell, always getting in your way...

We should meet up, I'm in Nara, shopping for an Impreza now. Oh, if only that nice shiny low-mileage STi V6 wagon wasn't so expensive...

Oh, and the slope is so named because the ancient way of reading the Japanese alphabet goes i-ro-ha... so it's like "ABC slope". Each of the turns has a different letter of the alphabet assigned to it.

Really? you are in Japan now? I drove to Nikko yesterday, and yes, I saw 4 monkeys. Only if I have my impreza, it would be much more fun!! Cruise up to Tochigi and Guma and test out the mountains. hehe..

Ya, we should meet up. Mini meet at IROHAZAKA.

Wow! Nice picture angles. Makes the road down to Bella Coola look lame.

It's cool the way they have that white line to drive along. <- first one for text, second one for Hypa.

Downhill is the SW20 stage and uphill is the Emperor's stage.

Yo facsman, you live up in Tohoku or kita-Kanto? I'll get in touch if I ever get some time off work to come up that way. Drop me a line if you're ever in the Kansai area. Or if you see a decent used Impreza around, hahaha

You're going to lose.


Unless you figure out the secret to the stage early on, then launch your car like a madman.


Nice pictures, I'd be in heaven there.

Actually I do, I just forgot that the leader is the black Evo III not the white Evo IV. Just watched it this a.m.

know1, you're still wrong though...since the leader's black Evo is an Evo III not V
