G'day,

Haven't posted on here in a good while hope everyone is well.

Sold my Ek9 in 2012, got a DC2 which I sold in early 2013 and drove a Seat Leon TDI for 18 months before moving to Australia. My Brother and I have a 3/4 built B18 CRX in Aberdeen with just a few wiring niggles. We will hopefully have it back on the road for my return.

I currently live in Sydney Australia on a gap year and recently took a trip to Tokyo Japan Skiing/Sightseeing.

Started the trip skiing in Hakuba then spent a week in Shinjuku.

Still have a keen interest in Hondas and thought while there I'd take my chance to head to the Type One Garage Tokyo. On the way I passed the Spoon shop and was welcomed by the staff who gave me directions to the Type One Garage. While there I asked if I could have a look at the Old School Civic and snap a couple pics.




I then headed down the road to the Type One Garage to find a customer S2000 just leaving. I had a look around and snapped a few pics of the cars in the shop. Bit gutted they didn't have the Spoon NSX but they had more than enough to justify the trip.




Here are some pics, If you guys ever get the chance to go to Japan it really is an awesome place. The people for one are big on hospitality, so polite and its easy to get around because the Public Transport is so efficient.

To be honest I barely spoke to them I simply asked if I could look around and I got a good hour to free roam. The snow in Japan is fantastic for boarding and Skiing. Thanks for the feedback guys those curious I used a Sony AS20 almost a Gopro type camera with the fisheye lens takes great wide pics and HD footage. The best part it only cost me $215, (130ish £)

Went there last year. Found it hard to find, but was definitely worth it. It felt weird as I was in complete awe of everything there, taking photos and dribbling all over the gaf whilst the staff just continued with there work.
Great pictures! :nice:
