    ... I'm going to Japan in April! :Happy::Happy::Happy:

    Honda HQ, Honda Collection Hall, Twin Motegi Ring and Suzuka Circuit are on the list for now :Photographer: (obviously lots of other places but those are pretty exciting ones).

    Finally! First hotel booked. No stopping me now. :jumpy::dribble:

    I'll take as many pics as my battery will allow me to. Actually thinking of I should get a proper camera for the trip?

    It was always on my to-do list and only recently I and my girlfriend has decided we should just do it.

    Now it's time to polish my Japanese :Smile:

    Are you stopping off or flying straight out there?

    We're going for few days to Tokyo, then staying near Mt. Fuji for a night. Then few days in Kyoto and Osaka, and returning to Tokyo for 3 more days. All in two weeks, will probably fly with Qatar through Doha. Will be booking at tickets soon and will add a thread with details and pics to follow closer to the date.

    Honds Collection Hall has a nice shop with limited editing goodies :Smile:

    I'll make sure it documented thoroughly. This may be a trip I will never have a chance to do again so I need to make the most of it.

    Will probably be bringing one hold baggage full of goodies :Smile:

    I've checked on Google Street View and Mugen (M-Tech) and Spoon are looking very low key so not much to see there :/ I guess if I am in the vicinity I will have it on my list, but at the moment I haven't got Tokyo planned out yet. I'm planning to visit some RC Drift places though :Smile: And Honda Collection Hall looks amazing.

    Google did a Street View inside ... :Icecream:

    May need to give Suzuka a miss ... Travelling from stay near Mt. Fuji to Kyoto on that day, and the detour to Suzuka will literally mean spending most of the day on trains, with 2 hours at Suzuka and few hours in the evening in Kyoto ...

    Bucket list for next trip ... Unless I figure something out.

    Twin Ring Motegi and Honda Collection Hall are a priority though so this will happen no matter what.

    I know mate :Smile: Planning is well under way and will take few more weeks. Booking last hotels today so at least that is out of the way. Then onto a list of places to see in Tokyo and trying to make some sort of a plan.

    So uhm ... we're staying in Hakone, near Mt. Fuji, for a day and a half. It will be pretty relaxed so will have some free time.

    I was looking for some touge roads nearby ... and indeed this is the place for touge. But this ... is amazing. Next to Hakone, there's a car rental company, and you can get this, for 3h for £75: NSX NA1 レンタル詳細 | fun2drive [楽しいクルマのレンタカー@箱根・御殿場]

    I'm now even more excited. Better book it in advance. :dribble:

    There's a nice article about the whole experience here:
