    Nice one folks, thanks for sharing Benson.

    One day I have to check it out. It's on the motoring mecca list.

    S30 Mike, looks like some cool cars turned out when you were there.

    I've heard that the popularity of the place has taken a dive in the last 5 years, what do did you guys notice?

    Actually looking at google maps, maybe alight at Motomachi Chukagai then walk across the bridge?
    i rented a car from nippon car rental - its pretty much the same cost as aussie rental cars

    Dropped past Daikoku Futo P.A last Saturday night to see what was going down, ended up staying for about 4hrs until the cops shut it down. Definitely a must see on a weekend night for any JDM car fan. A bit of everything was out - lots of weird, wonderful and plain awesome cars out. Here's a few of my favourites:

    1. It appeared as though this guy cleaned out the LED & Neon aisle at Autobacs and stuck it all on the car randomly. The kids loved it though.



    2. This Van looked completely stock outside. Then he opened the door... then the boot.



    3. They battled for ages against each other to see who was loudest. It had the security guys calling the cops in no time.



    4. This guy got owned by the cops later in the night. It seems Australia isn't the only place where Defecting happens!



    5. Really loved the look of this S15. Wandered over and had a chat to the owner and his friend. I've always found Silvia drivers to be a friendly bunch.



    6. This was just downright nuts. Not my kind of thing, but damn I was amused.


    7. Fat Cima


    8. Wish I knew what was done to this JZX100 Chaser. It sounded mean.


    9. Presidential Style


    10. The Gold Supra was strange. Left hand drive, US Spec car. Automatic. Big snail. He opened up the gate when leaving, though.


    11. Viper!!


    12. Yum



    Had a great night there, will drop in again next time I'm in Tokyo for certain.

    Hiring a car makes life easy - you're crazy not to try it. I always park overnight at the hotel for 1500 yen, as cheap as Sydney. Only expensive part can be the Tolls if you go on a big road trip.
