I’ve done a lot of tours for modified car fans in Japan over the past few years, from guiding an entire tour-bus load around Tokyo, all the way down to one person riding along to a track day. I recently met up with a group of nine Australians who wanted to do a whirlwind tour of some of the more famous and interesting shops in Tokyo, so I thought I’d take a few pics along the way.
The first stop on the tour was one of the basic requirements of a workshop tour, Top Secret’s headquarters in Chiba.

I’ll admit it. I have a bit of a thing for wagons. I saw this GX70 Mark II wagon at a car show a couple of years ago down in Nagoya, so I was a bit surprised to see it up at Fuji Speedway at the recent Mark II Tribe event.

I was at the 2014 1JZ Meeting when I was handed a flyer for an event called “Mark II Tribe” being held by Car Make T&E at Fuji Speedway’s Drift Course.
A Mark II-only event? I’m there!

I was up in Gunma the other day, so I stopped in to visit N-Style, a bodyshop that has made quite a few cars that have featured previously on Noriyaro.
The shop’s owner Nagahama nearly fell over when I pulled up in my van, as I was the last person he expected to show up on a Tuesday afternoon. After enjoying a can of coffee and having a quick chat, I poked around the yard to see what made up his latest lineup of personal cars.

Do you want to experience drifting in Japan, but either can’t or don’t want to buy a car? I may have the answer for you.

You might have seen the AE85 I picked up recently in one of the posts below this one. Check out the daily-driver that belongs to the guy I purchased it from!
