My name is José M. López aka Takahashi. I was born in April 1986. I have always been a car lover, specially for japanese cars, but saying the truth nowadays I am not a japanese car fanboy like I used to be, now I just love the way Japan takes care of cars.
After long wait, in 2004 I was graduated as Car Technician in my country of birth, Spain. I was working during 8 years for my local Honda Dealer and after that stage, I decided to move to England in 2009, specifically to London to get some proper English and get more job experience. I was only one year, but I will never forget that era of my life. As my first Nissan Skyline was in my hands thanks to the effort of a young guy. Dreams come true sometimes.
I returned to Spain in 2011, and I was lucky enough I was able to come back to my Honda dealer for another year and a half. But my dream of moving Japan was so strong and I couldn’t stay for long in Spain.
I moved to Kyoto during summer of 2013 to learn some japanese as my first target. But also to keep improving my technician skills in the place I most love. My dear Japan. During that time a attending the Japanese School everyday to learn japanese, and trying to speak japanese as much I could. I spend my time visiting workshop and garages trying to show you how beautiful Kansai area was. Not only car related, also daily life stories.
Here is me, the guy with the white T-shirt and Mr. Miura San.
