I was in Japan a couple of months ago to shoot for the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia race with the Five55 Production boys down at Fuji Speedway. This was my first time traveling to Japan and honestly I wasn’t expecting much as I was going there for work related purposes within a short span of 5 days 3 nights. But I couldn’t resist not covering anything else in Japan besides the race in Fuji Speedway. Knowing Japan has one of the craziest automotive scenes in the world, how could I let this opportunity slipped. I’ve then contacted Mr Ichiraku Toshiya San, which then hooked me up with Mr Hossy San. Hossy San and I communicated and set up a meeting point in Japan. Mr Hossy San’s White Ninja RWB is one of the latest creation by Nakai San and it was just completed a week ago. Mr Hossy is the man behind Army Girl along side Mr Ichiraku San. An independent apparel online store. If you’ve seen or been to Tokyo Auto Salon 2015, you will surely see their booth together with Mr Ichiraku’s RWB Kamiwaza there. Long story short, we’ve set a meeting point at Don Quixote Roppongi Shop at 12am. Not knowing the directions and which train to commute in Japan is a totally cool experience. People there are so friendly! But still being in a foreign country and not knowing their language is totally scary. But I manage to make my way down to Roppongi with some help from the locals. It was 12am when I reached Roppongi and I was late! I heard Japanese are very punctual people. Luckily Hossy san did not leave without me. My apologies Mr Hossy San for being late. Quickly, I jumped into his RWB and he drove down Wangan Highway and to Daikoku Futo, where I started shooting the 1st set.
It was a superb experience and a big Thank You to Mr Ichiraku Toshiya San for hooking me up with Mr Hossy San and Thank you Mr Hossy San for bringing me around Tokyo! Having that opportunity to witness and experience the Wangan has to be one of greatest experience ever as you know many iconic cars has driven pass that legendary road. Till next time when we meet again, domo arigato gozaimasu Mr Hossy San.
