First and foremost I'd like to give a special shout out to Jay Yuch for helping us out with the loft in Japan. You made the trip so much sweeter my dude. Shout out to Megan for coming out to chill for a couple of days, good luck on your endeavor and I'm sure you'll be a great english teacher (tell your mom I said that lol). I'll see you again soon. My brother and Robert for being the tech guys and navigating us through Japan, got lost a few times but that was our plan in the first place. Jenny Lam for meeting us at Hooters Shibuya, great seeing you out there. Marteena, you made my Japan trip more memorable, more sweeter. I was already passionate about Japan but now you've given me memories that I'm even more passionate about. Japanese food will never be the same in the states, living a normal life in the states will never be the same without you since I spent 10 days with you in Japan. Remember how I said music records memories for me? Because of the boy band truck that be driving around "iKon - My Type" will forever be the soundtrack to my Japan trip. See you around my lady, maybe Bora Bora will be in our future =).
OH! And a special shout out to the random Chinese dudes who gave us a ride off the Aqualine since we were the only one who took the taxi out to the middle of nowhere with no ride back. Great driving you fucking assholes, If you weren't three cars deep I'd put you in the hospital just for putting our lives in danger, but since we made it out alive, I appreciate the ride bitches.
Now that I got all that off my chest, we spent 10 days in Japan. Most of the time we took the train, walked about 10 miles a day (25k steps a day), shopped a lot, ate a lot, but thankfully we didn't gain any weight since we walked so much. We spent our second to last day chilling at the loft playing my favorite card game, Killer. Then we had our last dinner together at Broooklyn Diner. I'm telling you, the Japenese on our block are obsessed with Brooklyn. But damn they did a good job on the food though.
Saturday morning we spent our day packing, the only agenda we had was Tokyo Auto Salon and then the Auto Fashion x The Chronincles night week on the Aqualine. I took Marteena back to the Brooklyn Ribbon Fries for our last lunch together in Japan. She planned on staying in all day to rest while we go out our way to the Auto Salon, that's about an hour away from where we were. It was colder than I remember, I had to buy a scarf that night to keep my face warm. It was a good and bad experience all at the same time considering the Auto Salon was mad cool and putting ourselves in strangers car just to get off the island by testing grim reaper himself with his suicidal way of driving. He was driving a fucking Prius for fuck sakes, not even a tuned race car! 180kmp, what does that translate too in mph? 111mph through the tunnel with sharp turns and inches from the wall and semi trucks. N***** you ain't in Initial D! Anyways, it was good seeing my friends Hiro and Takeshi in their hometown, and the Chronicles team, DPK crew, and Auto Fashion USA fams. People say it's made peaceful in Japan, it sure is. Most of the time the strangers will not look you in the eyes, they are either to shy or scared. While conducting business with them is another story, they are friendliest people you'll ever meet. They are so polite in Japan, and bikes are hardly locked up, the trust system in Japan is fucking crazy. I love their customer service, their head nods and bow. 7-11 USA will never be the same!! We visit 7-11 in Japan twice a day! I miss their food already.
Now to the photos from Tokyo Auto Salon, I spent most of my focus on the exotics and race cars. The photographers out there are just the same as the US, none of them are interested in the cars and only on the girls. They be acting hella thirsty out there!! I get all excited when I see a group of photographers crowding around to take photos thinking its a new car or a celebrity but nope, just a freaking model. Thirsty ass.
Yo Japan, thank you so much for a great time, thank you for clean bathrooms, for the great fucking food, it will never be the same here at home. I'll see you again Japan, arigato gozaimasu!!!
