Day 4 was very long, Not much happened other than I drove 600Km from my hotel in Tokyo to my new vastly worst hotel in Osaka. But, It was nice, I enjoyed the drive even though it cost me a tonne of money on toll roads, as I got to see some amazing sights, one being Mnt Fuji!!!
Absolutely beautiful, honestly I didn't even know how close I was until I pulled off the highway to get an overpriced western branded coffee! Glorious, I stayed here for a good 20 minutes just taking in the sights before I headed back on my way ! ...
Arriving at my hotel was a...shock haha, but I had to keep costs down this holiday as traveling to Japan can be very expensive, especially when you have a rental car as no where is free parking. I thought that I was going to be having an easy night, but I got a Message from Kazuhrio of Osaka JDM / Fivemart saying lets go to dinner!
So I did & it was mostly delicious, but I couldn't eat the raw horse...
I headed back after dinner & got a good night sleep as I had a few places I wanted to check out the next day.
My Stop at Fivemart actually came after J's Racing but I'm posting the blogs back to front, for no real reason, I just really wanted to show you inside of Kazu's Shop Fivemart !
Outside is the Yellow DC2 you may have seen before, It was up for sale but the engine blew, so it's currently awaiting some repairs. It is lowered on Barramundi Split wheels..
This Accord Wagon on Eurolines is also up for sale, I'm sure we can arrange shipping if anyone wants it! Very cool looking car..
Even though Kazuhiro has given up his work space, he is still a very talented mechanic, so he bought this 3g and offers out a service of having it fitted with a b16 or a b18 before you pick it up!
Here is Osaka JDM's crowning glory, the E-AT Is as close to famous as a car can get, it is very fast also & seen in many videos online, one being where Kazuhiro gives a GTR the finger before he passes with ease...
Covered with the decals of the brands Kazuhiro's shop now represents...
also having new Aero made by ASLAN Garage, the car is sat on CE28's which 2 of which were borrowed from Aslan also! you can also see how predominant and aggressive the Devil wing which Osaka JDM Created looks on the 3g...
The car isn't a show pony though, covered in bruises from past battles...
Very proud to have our name on the OSAKA JDM E-AT !!!!
Inside the shop you will find a huge array of products for every single price range, which is exactly the same as what I am trying to achieve at 6two1, a place for everyone to feel welcomed!
Downstar Bolts also on the shelves, a company we're very close too!
Along with now being able to offer out Status Racing seats, you can see how Similar 6TWO1 & Fivemart / Osaka JDM
truly is !
Grip Royal Steering wheels is a new brand Kazuhiro has taken on and is doing so well with ! We are trying to also sort out being able to distribute these wheels, but give us some time!
The Bar area which is so cool just to chill at, a few times I bought my Laptop in and stole their wifi and chilled out with Normura, Kazuhiro's Girlfriend who is super cool and chill & like everyone else I met in Osaka very welcoming.
Various Hot Wheels Collection's are all over the place, some very rare model cars also,...
New Merchandise from Osaka JDM
Sofa Chill area for people to come relax in !
With the opening of his store, Kazu is also taking more of an active roll in the VW Culture in Japan, both he and his girlfriend now also own Mk2 Volkswagens of some form, which is great for business!
I saw this Model DC5 which I'd been looking everywhere for. I asked Kazu how much he wanted for it, I would have paid however much he had asked (Don't tell him that now!) And he Offered me it as a gift, I couldn't believe it, I could have cried with happiness !
That brings to a close the tour of the OSAKA JDM premesis now known as FIVEMART ! If you are planning on going to Japan, please visit & say Adam from 6TWO1 says hello!
You will see many more inserts of the blog in the coming weeks along side Kazu @ Osaka JDM Because he treated me like family whilst I was over. Allowing me access to some things that many will never experience & I am eternally grateful, I Cannot wait to go back and see Him & his crew again because I honestly do miss my time with them.
