Todays Drive.

Found an awesome road today. Basically it was 30 Km's of this;



Road went to a height of 1300 metres then back down. Only cars i saw were a fleet of Nissan Sylvias (200sx in UK?) meeting up for a spot of drifiting later no doubt and a couple of very modded MX-5's. Had a real blast but realised I need to stiffen up my suspension as every time I went round one of those hairpins (at a very rapid rate of knots mind you) new flaps were taking a battering. Direzza's were outstanding too, just couldn't get them to do anything but grip. Old Potenzas would have been squealing like a good 'un. Goes without saying I'll be back there very, very soon.

Pics below were taken at various points on the road. Got loads more but you get the idea.

Re: Todays Drive.

Believe it or not, those roads are in Tokyo. If any of you ever get a chance to come to Japan, I strongly recommend you hire a decent motor for a day and head to Western Tokyo (Oku-Tama area). The area is massive (as I think the pics show) and we saw very few cars the whole day.
