Car spotting at the Initial D Cafe

The Initial D cafe (which is actually called ‘Racing Cafe D’z Garage’) is in Shibukawa, Gunma, right next to Mt. Haruna (The real Mt. Akina). I took these photos on the cafe’s launch day earlier this year. The car park was literally overflowing with everything from Initial D replica AE86s and RX7s to high-tune time attack machines. Visitors came from all over Japan to celebrate the launch of the event and meet fellow fans of the legendary series.

Things are a little calmer at the cafe these days, but it’s still a great place to see some fantastic cars.
