マジかよ！今週末は５２週の中で最高だと思う。成田ドッグファイトに届いた週末のイベントへ本当にいっぱい行ってきた！いずれにしても、彼が今回来た理由は、自分自身で特別なイベントを作ってきた事だ。そのイベントはNRT（成田ドッグファイト）冬カフェーと言う。ずいぶん前にこのイベントの予定があって、そして、最初から行くつもりだったんだけど、「どんな感じになるか」とよく考えてた。シャーンさんが来て一緒にいるときはそんなに楽しいと思わなかったから、別のミーティングのことはすごくいいのかよくないかは、別として、関係がなくなってきた。それにしても、海ほたると着くと、車はもう集まり始じめていた。すごいね！NRTの影響が広いと思った。 Continue reading
Coming to you live from the shiny floors of Narita International Airport. I hope your cozying up for a good read in your man den or where ever you log onto the most addicting form of entertainment in the world because this is going to be pretty, if not very good. That statement would be up to interpretation for anyone who is reading this though. Whether or not you like my definition of sleepless, exhaust fume filled nights is up to you.
Recently the guys from CircuitSoul visited HTF and I here in Japan. Our first meeting and adventure started on a fairly overcast rainy day in Tokyo. Taking a short trip up to Harajuku from my house HTF and I headed out to Chiba where we met up with the CircuitSoul Car Boys. The long train ride gave us some time to get super excited and when we stepped off the local train the clear skies of Chiba greeted us. The sun was out and the town had a much more relaxed and quiet atmosphere to it. We waited around at the station for them to pick us up and headed out. After walking to “X”‘s house who owns “X” we held a small meeting to plan out day out. The boys were hungry so an obvious first choice was food. That didn’t quiet go down as simply as it is said. Finding a ramen shop took us almost an hour and 6 km of walking. After eating though, everyone’s cranky moods were eased.
This Arizona flavored Mitsubishi Lancer stuck out like a lost tourist in a crowd, I had to check it out!
The paint was certainly flashy but nothing on this car aside from that was crazy. I liked how the fenders weren’t rolled and the owner opted for tuck instead of perfect fitment like most of the people had. Simple touches of some hand painted sakura flowers on the rear and the emblem delete made this Mitsu a sleek little number.
So far living in Japan for around 4 months I have only had Arizona twice. And since this guy didn’t have US military plate I assumed he/she was Japanese. So the interest in Arizona must have been unique. I wonder where he gets all of it, maybe a direct import from a distributor or from a friend on one of the bases.
What ever the deal was, he left some bottles out the back of his car which was really tempting. I was surprised they sat there for the whole duration of my visit. If it was America I’m sure they would have been taken. With out a doubt.
*As a side note, I recently found out that the HUB; a British chain Pub in Japan carries Arizona Tea. Might go stock up on a few one day.
Hope everyone is having a good day/night.
