The Highway To Tokyo Auto Salon

After I say ‘Tokyo Auto Salon week’, I imply it. The event goes past the halls of Makuhari Messe as gatherings and cruises pop off in and across the metropolis.


It’s been three lengthy years since I final attended TAS, so I used to be itching to partake on this 12 months’s shenanigans. In that point although, I’ve moved a long way away from Tokyo, and even additional away from the conference middle in Chiba.


So I did what anybody else visiting Japan for Tokyo Auto Salon would do, and I booked a resort near the venue. I may have caught the practice up, however road-tripping in Undertaking Tough appeared like a a lot better thought. The lengthy drive would additionally be the right excuse to get my ER34 Skyline in tip-top form forward of time.


Nonetheless, life considerably received in the way in which and the subsequent factor I knew it was time to make the journey to Tokyo. In fact, I hadn’t executed any prep work.

I needn’t have fearful although, as a result of Undertaking Tough carried out faultlessly on the drive, together with being caught in site visitors for what felt like hours after a most important street was blocked as a result of an enormous constructing fireplace.


Lastly checked in at my resort, the wise factor would have been to get some relaxation forward of an early-morning begin at Tokyo Auto Salon 2023. However TAS week is all about hanging with buddies at meets, cruising, and in fact, Speedhunting, so sleep was the very last thing on my thoughts.

Keep tuned for extra.
