C130 parked up of the expressway heading to the Carina x Celica meeting in Fujinomiya x

Post Hellaflush all the way south in Hyogo we thought we’d check out the Nostalgic Car Show in Odaiba on that Sunday. The show itself didn’t look very interesting so we walked to the conbini a hundred meters past the event to have a quick scan at the parking lot across the road. You might hear this phrase a fair amount when looking at Japanese related blogs and websites “the parking lot is always as interesting or even more-so than the event itself“.  Needless to say there were a bunch of mind-blowingly cool cars that we couldn’t get over. Spending a good few hours walking around and chatting to the owners, it was one of the best Sundays spent on the entire trip!

Once again this was the case. I still have a load of un-seen images that will be posted over the next few weeks. To catch up on previous posts from this day click here x

C130 ローレル

September 21st, 2012

Weekends are non-stop in Japan. After Hellaflush all the way down in Nishiwaki (Hyogo Prefecture) we thought it would be a good idea to check out a classic car meet the next day all the way back up in Odaiba, Tokyo. To be honest it wasn’t very exciting and a little expensive to get in. Travelling by train out of central Tokyo on a hot day made us wonder around as we didn’t want to head back immediately. We checked out the car park, little did we know it was a thousand times better than the actual show. Here is a C130 Laurel we spotted amongst a bunch of other awe-inspiring cars. It has often been stated, that in Japan the car parks are usually an equal match for the shows when it comes to quality. Plenty more to come! x
