Let’s start abother regular night at Daikoku Futo with a nice JZX100. This one belongs to a drifter named Iwase.

Whenever I go to Tsukuba Circuit for a drift event, he’s usually there in his 2JZ-powered Chaser.

The weather still isn’t too cold in Tokyo, so Daikoku is still a pleasant place to hang out and meet people.

Matte-black suits the S15 Silvia’s lean shape, I reckon.

This year’s Nobel Prize for physics went to the Japanese inventors of the blue LED. This S15, belonging to a guy named Ichino, pays good homage to that, I’d say.

Yes, it’s her car!

Euros and more expensive cars tend to hang around the rear of the carpark. Afraid of being car-doored, perhaps?

This stone-peppered race-spec Ferrari 430 was pretty mean.

It still had slick tyres on it, and a race number from the Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific, held at Fuji Speedway a couple of weeks earlier.

Neat NSX on AVS VS6 wheels.

The headlight cover was signed by someone, but I couldn’t tell who.

This GT-R V-Spec II looked a bit abused, but at least it was out being driven.

Specced-out Suzuki Jimny. The numberplate was from Omiya, a countryside area just outside of Tokyo where there are lots of places to drive off-road.

Mixed-theme itasha.

Love me some four-doors.

86/BRZ guys.

JZX100s with stock guards sit really well on R34 GT-R wheels.

noriyaro_daikoku_09_06_18
Dished wheels work pretty well too.

noriyaro_daikoku_09_06_19
Yep, my kinda guys.

Waiting for it to get a bit later in the night.

This no-name guy also seems to be at a lot of the places I visit.

noriyaro_daikoku_09_06_22
This was a bit surprising to see in Tokyo.

The old Instant Gentleman demo car.

noriyaro_daikoku_09_06_24
Beikoku-style.

Quick can of coffee before heading back up the Wangan.

noriyaro_daikoku_09_06_26
Petter’s daily driver?

noriyaro_daikoku_09_06_27
Rivals. Very nice.

noriyaro_daikoku_09_06_28
The FTO is a pretty uncommon car to see these days.

noriyaro_daikoku_09_06_29
This was the best angle of this S13. The left-front corner wasn’t so pretty!

noriyaro_daikoku_09_06_30
This DR30 looked good from all angles though.

noriyaro_daikoku_09_06_31
Let’s finish the night on this Bluebird sedan. Mint!

    The FTO seems to have become quite rare in general, I remember seeing them around quite a lot when I was younger, now I believe there’s only one I’ve seen in the last year… (I’ve lived in Latvia and now in the UK)
