Default Japan Pics

Well, I've been gone for about a week or so. I took a vacation to Japan. I was at one of the southern cities Kagoshima. I had a blast, and will most likely go back at some time to check out Tokyo. Flight was about 13 hrs out, and 12 hrs back.

They've got some interesting cars over there that you don't see here. There was one particular honda wagon that looked pretty sweet. Also, the Japanese LOVE body kits...they're on everything.

Enjoy

too expensive...

think about it... (prices are guestimates)

Full body kit $5000 (bumper, grill, lip, fog covers, skirts, rear bumper, and badging)
Wheels $1500
Turbo $300 (if you go with a VF39)
Intercooler $200 (USDM STi)
Suspension $750
Brakes $2000
Seats $1500 (if you can find them)
Steering wheel $500 (ditto)
Door Panels $300
6 Speed $5000
Axles $?
DCCD components, controller, and sensors $?
Various others $? (switches and other things I'm not thinking of)
Gauges $1000 or so

That's like $18 grand not including the axles, DCCD stuff, or various parts... then add shipping from japan!!!

basically if I had the money to do all that, I might as well get a better car....

I live in Kurihama, Japan and was driving by a Mitsubishi dealership the other day and noticed that they are selling an evo station wagon now and of course it was white, just like every other car over here. Are they selling those back in the states now also? Looks kinda weird, I will post pics later once I get a chance.

Also, Tokyo Auto Salon will be at the makuhari messe in Yokohama. In January, here`s a link: http://www.e-autosalon.net/index.html

If you got the money to fly over here, I recommend going to this thing at least once in your life. Its worth it.

Haha No I can't say I ran across the used panties vending machine. Hell the drink and cigarette vending machines were EVERYWHERE. It's crazy.

That stuff is the shiat! The Pocari Sweat was ok, but I liked the CC Lemon better. My buddy Tom was hooked on the Amino plus or something drink. I don't remember the name of it. It was nice having a huge selection of stuff to drink. I was like....what am I going to try today. I had some grape calpit or something that was pretty good. For the most part, their drinks are more watered down then ours in the states.

Yup, first time I've been over there.

Probably the culture and the people. It's such a breath of fresh air to have people that are truly nice, courteous, and helpful. I'm not saying there aren't people like that here, but over there, pretty much everyone I interacted with was like that. Get this. I was in one of the department stores buying souvenirs. When I was ready with all my stuff, I looked for a cash register, the lady I asked, basically took all my stuff, I stayed there, she came back with a total, she also asked if they were presents, I paid her, and she came back with change and my stuff all wrapped up. Now how's that for service.

Food was good. We had sushi, smashed rice balls, hamburger steak, and of course got to sample some shochu (somewhat like sake). I brought a bottle of that back with me.

I don't recall if that's what they were, but you're probably right. They have water that spins on those clear plastic housing. You put the noodles in there, they spin around, and then you grab them dip them in the sauce and eat them. It was pretty cool eating at that place.
