Nope but hoping work send me to our new office there at some point. I'd like to check it out. One of my managers seems to go there about 3 times a year.

Yup I was there from '08-'10!

Best times of my life there. Loved the car scene too.

It is definitely track heaven here and the mountain roads are amazing. Most of the people I know are drifters so we take trips to Fuji Speedway and Ebisu but trying to find more people that are into grip racing.

I was in Japan from 1999 - 2001. Loved it. Wouldn't mind living there indefinitely. Wasn't into the car scene when I was there (not really now, either). Loved looking at the cars and motorcycles, though, especially since back then, there were no Evos/STis in the US.

I lived in Yokota AB, pretty close to Tokyo. Couldn't complain. Where we're the rest of you guys at?

My wife was stationed at Camp Zama and I accompanied her. We went all over. Went skiing at Nagano as well as doing some fishing at Lake Ashi. My wife was a linguist, which helped. Hated the trains, though.

Billy is the man I like always go to Apple Martini it's one of my favorite bars. I always get the Lamborgini Shot.

Yeah the trains suck I like driving every where but tolls kill you and finding parking as you get closer to Tokyo is a pain in the ass. I want to take a bullet train to Osaka.

I actually enjoy taking the trains buses and subways everywhere. Kyoto is just really quiet and very surreal to me. Though rainbow bridge is pretty amazing at night.
