Visit and interact with the hidden hangout spots of local motorists, including but not limited to: Daikoku PA, Tatsumi PA, and Umihotaru. While these so-called underground spots have been more exposed in recent years thanks to social media & car-related web sources, it often doesn't come natural for Japanese people, who tend to be shy, to openly interact with visitors from abroad. We will go immerse ourselves in the community by taking a tour of active spots and engage with the locals. Which car I take guests on varies on group size and car availability, since I share some with the family. If the slot fills up it will automatically be the Evo VII, but otherwise I may take the GT-R if the group size is smaller. If you you want to lock down the vehicle of choice, please book a private slot and let me know beforehand.
Pick up at Shibakoen and dropoff at Meguro station are included.
I will select 1-2 spots from the following, based on how active the community is: 1. Daikoku - the biggest underground car scene in Japan; a highway rest area with 400+ parking spots. 2. Tatsumi - a scenic rest area where motorists hangout and take their social media pics. 3. Umihotaru - a massive complex in the middle of Tokyo Bay; with 500+ parking spots.

A camera or smartphone to take lots of pictures - it's generally OK to take pictures of people's cars, though it's always polite to ask the owner first.
- Cancellation may occur in case of poor weather. - Please take note of the finish time. I can't drive you back to your hotel even if you don't have a last train, as it will be an illegal taxi. - It's very hard to predict how many / what kind of cars will show up. These are casual meets.
