WEEKEND EDITION: 21st December 2008

Took the ‘Line to Fuji Speedway yesterday for an event held by Himawari Racing, which meant taking a photo of the car with the mountain. I remember Tsuyoshi Tezuka showing me a photo on his phone a couple of years ago of his daily driver Toyota Soarer under a cherry tree in full bloom with Fuji in the background. That photo might have to wait for another few months though.

Remember this picture?

Now that it’s winter, it’s time for a more appropriate version.

I really don’t want to turn this into a “Oh wow, Japan is so wacky, look at this, LOL” website, as there’s already plenty of them out there, and you end up with people accusing you of racism and ignorance.

But I had to put this one in.

Try saying that five times fast.

I often get told I have a “nice stick” over here.

You can pick up some nice stick in Japan for about a dollar.

What makes it worse is that it’s actually filled with buttery cream.

Foot-long, cream-filled nice sticks.

This just goes to show you that it doesn’t matter what part of the world you are in, someone will stick a GT-R badge on his Honda.
