I’m here for my first time with a group of 4 friends, one who has been here before.

It’s so weird how Toyota Crowns are rare as can be in Australia but they’re like the Commodore of Japan.

And how the boxy kei is such a big deal, such a common thing. But it’s a whole strain of car styling that’s virtually isolated from the rest of the world. The xB and Cube aside.

The food is fucked. The bullet trains are fantastic. Fuji is beautiful.

Ao far all we’ve done is get off the plane and ride trains and there’s so much ahead of us. Amazing.

In a few weeks ok driving an R34, NSX and FD RX7. It doesn't feel fair.
