Japan Trip 2015 – Day 2 – Tokyo Motor Show

Day 2 of my trip to Japan was all about cars, bikes, and automobiles, and a little bit of Gundam Front.

Prior to departing for the trip, I have learned that it coincides with the 44th Tokyo Motor Show (learn more here). So without much hesitation I quickly bought two tickets online, one for meself and one for me wife. And it so happened it was on the last day of the event on the 9th of November 2015.

The motor show was held in Tokyo Big Sight. It is located in Odaiba and is a popular venue that holds all sorts of events throughout the year such as AnimeJapan, Halal Market Fair 2016, Tokyo Shoes EXPO, and MAGIC The Gathering GRAND PRIX TOKYO 2016, just to name a few.

As for the Tokyo Motor Show, it was such a huge event with loads of cars and bikes and not forgetting the beautiful and kawaii girls 🙂 Most of the cars and bikes at the show were Japanese of course with Toyota and Honda taking up most of the real estates. Here are some that deserved special mention.

Honda Clarity. Honda’s every own fuel cell car.

The all new Honda NSX.

Japan Trip 2015 – Day 1

Been wanting to post the photos I took during my trip to Japan in November 2015 with my wife. Since I took quite a few photos during the trip, I will post them in several posts.

For this trip I no longer lug around my Canon 400D and the 18-200 Sigma OS lens. Instead I got the Sony Alpha A6000. And I also got myself an ultra-wide angle lens that I also wanted to go along with it. It is the Sony 10-18mm f/4 OSS. This combination is a welcome change from the heavy and bulky Canon+Sigma setup. Most significant is the weight reduction. It and it is a joy to use and I couldn’t be happier.

First off is day 1 in Akihabara and Kanda Station and surrounding areas. Just checked in to the hotel after an overnight flight and was feeling pretty dizzy. The weather wasn’t so good either. It was dark and gloomy. In fact, it has been like this and rainy throughout the whole trip. Had dinner at a small and quiet Ramen shop and called it a day.

Enjoy the photos.
