Immerse Yourself in Tokyo's Car Scene - A Unique Experience
Let's explore the underground hangouts of Tokyo's local car enthusiasts located on the parking areas of the city's metro highways. Although these spots have gained some publicity in recent years, it's still not easy for the typically reserved Japanese locals to interact openly with foreign visitors. But don't worry, we will blend in with the community and discover the active spots by taking a tour and engaging with the locals. Get ready to dive into Tokyo's car culture! Other things to note: - Cancellation may occur in case of poor weather. - Please take note of the finish time. I can't drive you back to your hotel even if you don't have a last train, as it will be an illegal taxi. - It's very hard to predict how many / what kind of cars will show up. These are casual, unorganized car meets.
