Easily the best this about Japan is it's variety. A simple trip out to Meihan to watch some drifting offered a lot more than a trip back in NZ. The trip there consisted of too many coffee's on the express way, which meant a relief stop was normally needed halfway there. This particular day we came across this VW workshop just off a small exit next to the express way. If we hadn't decided that that small off ramp was the one we needed, I would have never even know this place existed. Which really puts into perspective how much non-locals really miss out on.
We popped in and asked if it was OK to take a few photos. The owners were really interested in our Honda Life, two foreigners driving a scraping Kei car must not have been a common sight for them. We showed them some photos of Adam's Beetle that he owned before his 180SX, so they made sure we took a photo of the owners version.
Once we arrived at Meihan I snapped a few photos in the pits then took a seat to relax up on the viewing platform. It was nice being at Meihan and not having to stress working on a car.
This 326 kitted 180sx was one of my favorite cars from the trip. Obviously it didn't drift as well as the more seriously setup cars, but it was cool to see this style at Meihan.

Even on the way home there was always stuff to see. We ran into these two Ferarri's in a parking area while stopping for dinner.
