Juicebox in Japan: Koguchi Power

Koguchi power was a such an unplanned part of this journey. I was briefly trying to find this place but was completely overwhelmed by our Japanese markers on google maps and gave up.

Juicebox in Japan : N-Style

Fukushima already seemed like a strange distant dream, we were rolling along a country road heading for N-style. This was a place we had wanted to visit for a long long time. A lesser visited shop, N-style have always been churning out some of the coolest Japanese builds.

JUICEBOX IN JAPAN: EXIT FUKUSHIMA

It was the next morning, we were just about to hit the road but the night before had seen a cheap JZX100 back up in Fukushima so we decided to go up for a look. I didn’t really know what to do with a lot of these photos as I didn’t want there to be a mega feature for the next one, so our exit day has its own little article.

Juicebox in Japan: Crazy Street Style Take Two

We were exhausted but once again the recent activities had the adrenaline flowing and we fought off the tiredness. This may very well be the last time we see these places so we figured there was no point crashing and going asleep pure stubbornness.

JUICEBOX IN JAPAN: SCANNING EBISU

So if you have been following these Japan features so far you get the idea they have been pretty in-depth. Each has about 40-50 images. I found it extremely difficult to scale it back any further,  I’m always the guy that’s eager for more shots…

JUICEBOX IN JAPAN: MOUNTAIN DRIFTING IN FUKUSHIMA

Juicebox in Japan: Corollas and Godzillas

So for the people who have been following our trip to Japan so far, quite a lot of this will be car related (as you may have guessed). This holiday was planned out as a car holiday, so it’s going to be an automotive heavy story throughout.

Rounded Pleasures

On a rare sunny evening we a few months back we got together to appreciate this JZX90 Mark II. A fresh enough import into the country it was one of the very few x90 Mark II’s that really grabbed my attention.

More Door Obsession

Ireland has gone crazy for the Japanese four-door sedan. A little over ten years ago many of these big six cylinder machines were unattainable to the Irish man. Back then, still fetching insane prices in Japan very few of these were snatched up in the boom years and any that made it here were something of legendary status.

Corner Character

Almost hidden in the corner of the Toyota gathering a few months back was this AE86. The owner was a little taken back by my interest in it. I tend to obsess over cars with a little character; cars we wish could only speak and share their tales, with faded team stickers, dents holes and scuffs.

Japfest an end of year calendar for most of the stuff we are into and most of the cars either come off of the road or go into hibernation for the winter.
