For all the times I’ve been to Japan, I have never been to Tokyo Auto Salon. Tokyo Auto Salon is the SEMA of Japan, but way crazier for JDM fan boys because all of the popular Japanese car brands come out to display their latest products and show off their latest car builds. This year I got some of the crew to come out to check this internationally famous show and give some of us a vacation from the mundane 9-5.
This year’s crew included Shavi, Abbitt, Keith, Regina, Vinh and Rica.
Our little apartment and our home for the next nine days.
Our first destination after settling in was Shibuya and as dog lovers I had to take them to go see the Hachiko statue.
The famous Shibuya crossing. I missed this place.
Busy as ever.
Genki Sushi in Shibuya is my go to spot for cheap and fun sushi. They have an english menu and they take card.
You can tell I love salmon.
Trying out this hamburger sushi which was not that great…
Getting smashed on Japanese alcohol in our small little dining area. These tasty drinks pack a serious punch.
The next morning we headed back to Shibuya for lunch. Shavi and his egg and beef rice bowl.
I ended up getting some dry ramen which was a bit salty for my taste.
I love the streets of Shibuya, they just have so much color and life.
Abbitt taking in the scenery of Shibuya, he’s also coming out with a video of our trip so watch out for that.

Train moving photos!
Our next stop was Harajuku where fashion meets desserts. You can find crepe stands all over Harajuku and you have to get one.
Intense escalator entrance of a mall.
Shavi, Rica and Vinh.
Abbitt in the streets of Harajuku.
These small vans are very popular here in Japan.
We made our way to Shinjuku for dinner and to catch a show at the Robot Restaurant.
The night life in Shinjuku is intense from good late night eats to places where you can get a naked girl covered in soap to slide all over you as a massage.
We ended up having Coco Ichibanya curry for dinner.
Regina and Keith riding the robot goddesses.
Before the Robot show, you enter a lounge filled with colorful lights and mirrors with a band of robots playing music while you get a drink.
20 minutes later and it was time for the show. I’m going to let the photos tell the story of this crazy fucking show.
The craziest experience I’ve ever had in my life and I definitely recommend this show to anyone who visits Tokyo. Just pay for the show and not the food. That’s it for today, I’ll be back in a couple of days with coverage of Tokyo Auto Salon. Thanks for reading!
