Automotive theme in Japan - Golden Week

Well, here comes the Golden Week in Japan. What places related to the automotive theme in Japan can you visit on weekends? First on the list, of course, is DAIKOKU FUTO PARKING AREA. This is the place where the whole car party gathers at night.

This place is located in the city of Yokohama. It is famous for the fact that nearby is the Wangan track, where illegal night races were held earlier. On Friday and Saturday nights after 21:00, fans of fast driving and cool cars gather on the territory of Daikoku Futo.


The race track where the 2019 FORMULA 1 JAPANESE GRAND PRIX will take place. This is not even just a race track, but a whole town with themed hotels, attractions, go-karts for adults and children. More information about the planned events and information can be found on the website Location Suzuka Circuit is an hour's drive from Nagoya city.


Those who drift know or have heard of the Ebisu drift track. In fact, this is not one track, but 7 separate tracks located in Fukushima.

You can come here either in your own car, or rent a car and try this route yourself. More information can be found on their website:

For lovers of vintage cars, I recommend the GLION Museum in Osaka.

Here you can see vintage Japanese, European and American cars, taste a delicious steak, and if you are lucky enough to see a Japanese wedding procession. More about the Glion Museum, on their website

If you are a fan of TOYOTA AE86, then you need to get to CARLAND 86 company in Kyoto city.
