Judging by all the internet comments and interests shown, it seemed the cars from Hi-Fence club were not just my personal favourites of the Custom Show. While the event showcased plenty of American iron, the guys from Hi-Fence have brought along cars with German and Japanese origins instead. 2 Porsches, a Toyota and a Nissan/Datsun. […]

As we start to wrap up our coverage of the 2015 Yokohama HotRod Custom show, here are some of the other sights that i’d like to share. How’s this for another approach to the pickup?

After an entire morning worth of touring around the fantastic and lovely Ghibli Museum (well worth visiting if you can get hold of the tickets), we trekked through Inokashira park on our way to meet this holiday’s Meat of destiny, Matsusaka beef in Steak House Satou!

I’d like to think, part of the charm of Tokyo is that because the city is such a vast metropolis, there are always interesting new places to discover, explore and taste! But sometimes, there are just some places which have charmed us so much that we make it a point to drop by whenever we […]

Tsutaya Bookstores T-site flagship store is one place i always love to revisit, besides the fantastic section dedicated to all things automotive, the excellent Ivy’s Place restaurant and a lovely little petshop, there is also the carpark where there will always be something cool or interesting parked up, even on days where planned meets are […]

Back in Akihabara, every toy-otaku’s dream locale and a place where i’ve never fully yet explored even after visiting Tokyo a few times already.
