    Visiting Japan

    Hey Guys,
    Planning a trip to Japan.

    Want to go in the warmer months, for obvious reasons.
    Girls, Cars, Girls

    Want to know some tips, places to see from people who have been?

    Also anyone know of any good car shows on over there, if so I will plan my trip around this.

    Thanks in advance

    Luke

    where are you flying into?
    i lived near osaka and hiroshima for a year. the most enjoyable things i have done are always in the country side. and there are cool car shops in even the small towns so you dont miss out on much if you try to stay away from the big cities.
    i am going this summer as well. if you go in mid to late may, you will have cooler weather and get there before the rainy season.
    im going to rent a car this year. there is a group of us going so it will be cheaper than having to pay for a JR pass. plus the train system is smaller in the country side.
    let me know if you have any questions about japan. i have friends there that can do some good research.

    I am going to back up Rsport on this one. The country-side is super cool.

    When I visited, my brother lived in a place called Okayama ( spelling? ) Its a medium city with a shinkansen stop. 20 mins riding bikes and we were out in the cuts. Old graveyards, hella old temples, and people are more interested in you ( especially if your white )

    Honestly I had way more fun in the smaller city than Tokyo. That being said, one of the big cities is not to be missed!

    Basically want to go to a few nostalgic car shows.
    I'd like to plan my trip around a car show or two if there are any good ones?
