    Hey guys, so I got back 2 weeks ago but have been busy playing GTA and doing nothing to post pics haha. I was in Japan for 3 weeks and stayed in Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Kyoto and a few other smaller cities/towns.

    I have to say, this trip was awesome! Had a lot of fun experiences, some scary ones lol, and met some great people. One of them being Derek!

    I will post pics from the tourist-y things in this thread and the car related pics in my car show thread, so don't forget to check that one out for all the R34 GTR glory! Anyway, enjoy these pics and check the rest out on my Flickr!

    First Night in Asakusa, near Tokyo Skytree Tower
