SUBLIMINAL SODA: Peachy Roku

By in 12-04-2010 3:02 pm

I was at the workshop yesterday doing some stuff to the Mark II. Shino was there too, repairing the front end of her 86, which has taken a couple of hits recently.

At one point, Shino took a break from working on her AE86 and walked over with a big can of Mountain Dew for me from the vending machine outside.

I couldn’t help but notice the can of peach drink she had bought for herself.

APRIL BLOOMS: Sakura season

By in 01-04-2010 1:19 am

Today might be April Fools’ Day, but April 1st is the middle of cherry blossom viewing season in Japan!

To get a bit of a headstart on the Tokyo viewing season, which should be best this weekend, I headed down to Yamanashi prefecture a few days ago and visited a couple of scenic locations like Kuonji (久遠寺).

TOYOTA HISTORY GARAGE: AE86 display

By in 30-01-2010 1:56 pm

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, Autosalon week meant visiting a lot of different places around Tokyo. Since the majority of the people I was with had never been to Tokyo, I thought the Toyota Megaweb and Toyota History Garage in Odaiba might be a good place to visit.

Nice little display eh? A mint red Levin they used to display beside the FT-86 a couple of months ago, Toyohisa Matsuda’s old competition car and Takumi’s toufu-ten replica, complete with tofu shop!

I think there was a mint Hakosuka off to the left as well. The Toyota History Garage is always fun.
