The Chronicles Vlog #7 (Part 1): The Return To Japan…

Included are some stills along with the video from the beginning of my journey back to Osaka, Japan…Enjoy!!…Make sure to subscribe on YouTube for future updates because there will be a lot of them!!…

The Chronicles Vlog #7 is a series of videos documenting my journey back to Japan in preparation for the annual Wekfest Japan event. I was asked to return to Japan a few days earlier than I had originally scheduled to help out the guys over at Tactical Art. They were finishing up some cars and preparing for the event and it was important that I be there early to help. I decided to document the entire thing so that you can see what goes on prior to WFJP as well as after. This is essentially every day life in Japan as we prepared for the big event.




In Part 1, my friend Dougie and myself travel to Japan to meet up with Yasu Shimomukai of Tactical Art and Phaze2 Japan. He is a good friend of mine and it is always a pleasure to hang out with him, so I knew our time would be interesting to document. You get to see what cars were being prepped for the show from their shop as well as other random things I participated in. My usual travel buddy and Vlogger, Ryan Der, did not make the trip this time around as he had other plans that he himself will fill you in on. Check it out and make sure to come back for more! There is TONS of content coming from Japan so please subscribe for future updates!!

*I am not a videographer and this wasn’t meant to be a visual masterpiece of any sort. I am merely capturing bits and pieces of my life for you guys to see.
