**THERE ARE TWO UPDATES** Vlog #3, Part 8 here, and directly below this is Part 1 of the Wekfest Japan 2016 Photo Coverage…
We are back in Japan for Vlog #3 to cover everything that went on during our trip for the 2016 Wekfest Japan event. It might have been just a few months since we left Japan but so much has changed already. The Exceed Japan shop is a bit further along in development and Yasu Shimomukai is working feverishly on new project cars for the Wekfest event. This time around, we stayed exclusively in Osaka, which is much like a second home to me, and spend our time with friends and fellow car people. This Vlog series will cover the entire trip and all the extra curricular stuff we did along the way….
Part 8 is a compilation of our final days in Japan. The trip to Osaka for Wekfest Japan was a great time, but alas, all great things must come to an end. There was much work to be done at home so I was honestly a little excited to get back home. In this Vlog, you’ll see short clips of us as we go to Kyoto, and then head to Nara the next day to handle some business for Exceed Japan, followed by a stop by the body shop to check on Yasutaka Shimomukai’s EG6 Civic project. We also stopped by Tactical Art to see what was new over there and to say hi to some old friends. There are a ton of snippets of various things in this video so sit back and enjoy the end of this epic 8-part trek to Japan…

Once again, an amazing trip and great footage of your adventures. Can’t wait for the pictures and your commentary on the whole trip. The photos and your words really bring everything together. I always find myself wanting to watch the vlogs over after reading through your coverage because you point out things that I didn’t catch the first time through. Your travels and experiences are for some, a once in a lifetime trip. Yet you manage to do it twice a year!
I hope you, your friends and this site continue to allow us into your lives for many years to come. Truly inspirational. Keep up the good work and please know that it is very much appreciated. Aloha!
P.S. IMO, all finale vlogs MUST include credits and picture slideshows accompanied by 80’s TV theme music/pop songs…haha.
