    Here are a few pics from my trips to Japan.
    I was there in October (met with derek, who you can see in one of the pics if you look close haha) and attended the Style Box Meeting in Odaiba. The show was mostly Hiace vans, but the show was accompanied with the ACG show in the same parking lot.

    I also was in Yokohama in Feb to attend the Japanese Nostalgic Car show (www.nos2days.com), what a show if you love the old school rides!!

    Pretty awesome!

    I added some pics from just walking around Tokyo, which in itself is a car show everyday haha!

    check my FlickR for more pics!

    Cool! I'm getting so excited for my trip in August haha. Is Derek looking in the trunk of the orange car? (I have no idea what it is)

    BTW, I checked out the Flickr, very nice pics! I love the yellow 280z.

    that is derek, yes haha! From what i recall, it had quite the nice little stereo setup! It's a Suzuki Lapin btw ;)

    How long are you going in august and where are you focusing your travels? I'm sure you'll have a great time!

    The 280z is awesome!

    Going for 3 weeks with the girlfriend, so it won't be all car oriented haha.

    The plan is to backpack around between Tokyo and Osaka/Kyoto. One major thing on the list is to climb Mount Fuji haha and see Derek at some point!

    Wow, drew, I just realized who you are. cool.

    I was trying to see if I could fit in the trunk of the car. As Ben, he knows that I can fit in an Austin Mini trunk. The Lapin should be no problem.

    I sleep on my couch cause the kids keep getting bigger... I was kicked out over a year ago.

    So, you know about Ben and his 5-series eh?

    I have an Estima. Want to camp out? The seats fold (somewhat) flat and I can let you drive it while you are here too. It's supercharged so be careful. You might not be used to such power.

    Derek, let's rent some space and fill it with cheap not-running camper vans from auction and start a theme hotel. an urban campsite would be a hit with tourists.
