A coulple of months ago I was preparing myself again for another unforgettable experience in one of the most amazing countries in the world, Japan. Over the past 10 weeks I have travelled throughout capturing and documenting the car scene as it unfolds, nothing more, nothing less. Just like my previous trips I have not only caught up with so many friends but have met a whole bunch of new faces who in which I’ll never forget. 2.5 months has lead me from Tochigi Prefecture, just north of Tokyo all the way down to Hiroshima. By car, local and bullet trains, buses, bikes and walking I’ve covered just under 11,000km’s. With this being my fourth trip to Japan since 2010 it only seems to get better and better which is almost too amazing to not only think but to write. With all of that being said I am once again blown away by what the people of this small archipelago have to offer.
Out of all the images I could have chosen for my last post in Japan I chose Asano-Sans RPS13 from Chiba. A lot of images are circulating on the internet, but what people mightn’ understand is the spirit and soul in the car and driver. Standard, aero, NISMO wheels and lowdown. Asano-San drives this to and from events, one of the cleanest cars I’ve seen and one of the hardest drivers witnessed. All the way from Chiba Damashi to Bad Stance in Hiroshima, no trailer, no trucks, just a good attitude and a positive human; what it’s about.
With just under 400gbs of data, roughly 25,000 images and a whole bunch of unprocessed film not only from this year but last year there are some interesting things on the horizon. I am looking forward to getting home and starting some projects that is going to express what I experience in a refreshing context.

It has been 3 years since I’ve seen Yoshida-san and his S15. Today I caught up with him at Nikko Circuit for a Garage BB soukoukai / mini-comp day. Still to this day holding it down with pure style. Incase you didn’t notice this S15 is actually a new shell from the old, white one. To see more photos from 2010 click here, here, here and here. Can’t wait to show more in the future x

Yesterday was my first time visiting Sports Land Yamanashi SLY for a Drift Ensemble soukoukai. Without question the coolest track I’ve seen in Japan. Being located in the middle of the forest the feel and outlook is definitely similar to a street and touge layout. Here is a shot of Alexi in his Mark II x
