Inside T.R.A Kyoto aka Rocket Bunny

When for first time I found myself looking for TRA Kyoto I was already excited. Just the pleasure of finding the workshop in the streets of UJI was amazing. TRA Kyoto is that kind of place you think that don’t really exist. Is just on the internet and is not the real life.

After searching internet at yahoo and some other japanese place I did get the address, then was just google how to go.

I know that this is not the kind of post you expect about TRA Kyoto. You expected rocket bunnies all around, but this post is something more spiritual. Here in rthirtytwotaka we love the classic images and classic stickers and signs, so I decided that the first post will be about showing something more about TRA Kyoto.

Like almost half of Japan, the mess is like the rule number one. Here we have an scale model of the most recent Miura-san Scion FRS. Yes Scion, as the car was imported from the US, more specifically straight from Santa Monica.

The well known Rocket Bunny PS13 also in scale model version.

As I am spanish born, this really surprised me. Old school Rallies from Mexico all them wrote in Spanish. Really amazing stuff inside the office.

Do you have a letter to Miura San? Post box can’t confused you, If you find this, you are already visiting TRA Kyoto, and if you are here you are really excited.

More classic images and signs, Miura San has a great taste and he is a great american culture lover as we can see.

Here as a result of many many bumper cuts everything is plenty of white dust. But for I don’t now the reason is like the only way it can be. If weren’t like that then this would be another shop but not TRA Kyoto.

The collection of T-shirt and Jackets is awesome, some were never used yet, maybe waiting the next Kanjo Battle in Osaka. The skate was just as cool as the rest of the stuff inside the office. There is an strange feeling when you sit down together to Miura San. Like you and the Master teaching you and showing you all the stuff around. Such a great feeling.

I promise you next post will have many Rocket Bunny cars and some other cool things that Miura San showed to rthirtytwotaka. Now I just wait to find one of our sticker in the next project, which of course I have seen but is really confidential. See you soon.

Visiting Navic

What a nice surprise today. Walking you discover many things… I spotted this shop, is Suzuki Dealer but is like a specialist for kei cars.

There were many Cappuccinos, some AZ’s and some normal cars. But despite this, they had like four or five cars just for racing also for sale. The Daihatsu ESSA was even tuned.

Spending nights in Tokyo

Here are some shots from Tokyo, Japan. When the sun is gone the city turns into a multi-light city. Buildings, advertising screens, cars and the city itself have bright colours. I took many photos during nights, I just love Tokyo when is dark. I decided to share some of them hoping you will like this post.

All pictures are High Resolution.

Spotted >> BCNR33

IMG_5950

As we all already know, the GTR33 is not the most popular of the GTR’s. Although I have to say this is really unfair. It is a very effective car, wide, well looking and powerful, just like another Godzilla.

Any drinks ?

One of the things that you may remember when thinking in Japan are probably the vending machines.

IMG_4006

Vending machines are everywhere. They’re in subway stations, parking lots, buildings, civic centers, and especially on the streets. There are hundreds of them selling all kind of stuff. Hot or cold drinks, water, coke, tea, beers …

The variety of drinks you can taste is unimaginable, but I decided to take some pictures of some drinks you can find walking cities. Also noticeable is the possibility to buy tobacco in the streets if you have special card to ID yourself.

Here is just an small sample of drinks.

Quickest view at Osaka you have ever seen

Probably not. In today’s post I will try to summarize Osaka in less than twenty photos. To do this I have avoided some of the most typical places such as Osaka Castle, and perhaps I pay little more attention to other details that you can also find if you visit the city and spend your time walking freely without any determined destination. Another possibility is to fall asleep, you and your pet and wait for better moment.

The feeling when you spot this

IMG_6175 copia

If when you were a child you were influenced by manga cartoons in TV, Nintendo or a 1990 Japanese sedan because of your parents, then you realize you’re just stuck in a world that you can not leave. Your are officially addicted to Japan. Continue reading
