Here we go, SEASON 2! The Chronicles Vlog is back now for 2016 documenting our many adventures in Japan! I take my annual trip to Tokyo, Japan for the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon event and later travel to Osaka to spend time with friends. This time around, I have some first-timers along for the journey along with the usual suspects who you’ve come to know well from my other Vlogs.
Part 4 picks up on the Monday following Tokyo Auto Salon 2016. We spent the Sunday before just exploring Tokyo and doing some touristy/shopping-type stuff but Monday was dedicated to visiting some tuning shops in the local area. I’ve developed a pretty good relationship with Spoon Sports over the years, thanks to my friend Aaron from Spoon Sports USA, so I always make it a point to stop by to see what is new whenever I’m in Tokyo. Spoon itself is just a office and shipping department so there isn’t ever much going on over there, but Type ONE is where all the toys are at. The Spoon NSX-R just recently made it back over to Japan after spending a year over here in California but the big news there is that they’ve begun tinkering with the new Honda S660. There weren’t any notable upgrades yet as they’ve just started on the new chassis so we hang out at Type ONE to look at some classics there. My boy Chuy is a HUGE Spoon Sports fan, probably one of the biggest fans I know, so I really wanted to show him around the two spots. He also wanted to have Spoon president Ichishima sign something of his as a collector. You’ll have to see in the video if the ever-illusive Tatsuru Ichishima pops up at the office or not. Enjoy…
