Watch - Fresh Tokyo Flash Car Meet 2016 (w/Videos)

Jet lagged and barely conscious, we take in our second annual car meet in Japan.

Jan 16, 2016

Arrive in Japan at night from the US West Coast and you won’t exactly be tired. With a time difference of 17 hours, more than likely you’ll be a night owl, like Super Street Editor-in-Chief Sam Du when he goes to Vegas. Any 13-hour flight, as you can imagine, is brutal, but that didn’t stop us from hosting our second annual Fresh Tokyo car meet literally hours after touching down at Narita International Airport. Just like last year, we partnered up with our friends at Hardcore Japan and decided to host it at its original location, the Tokyo Decks parking structure.

In all honesty, we didn’t know what to expect from this year’s meet ‘n’ mingle. It was before the official start of Tokyo Auto Salon and local cops were fully aware underground car culture would be alive and kicking for the weekend. Seems we had nothing to sweat; the turnout was bigger than last year’s! A few old friends dropped by, too, like Jun Saitoh and Yoshinobu Yamamoto’s with the Marga Hills NSX. A few Nissan Skylines rolled through from a various generations, which still gets us super pumped seeing the car in its native environs. And even with the widebody game getting a little out of hand, Lexon Racing came by with its widebody Lexus IS350.

It’s only day one of our tour and as expected the trip is turning out amazing. Make sure you keep checking in for more coverage from our journey to Japan for the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon!
