One of my favorite movies of all time is Tokyo Drift. After seeing that movie a countless number of times, the inner car lover in me has always wanted to go to a drift event. Fast forward a number of years, I never thought I'd actually end up in Japan, a place populated by Supras and Skylines (in our area anyways).
Although we live in a small town, where the car scene is probably nowhere near as crazy as it would be in Tokyo, I was very pleasantly surprised to learn that there is actually a drift track not far from where we live.
People come here for events, and just to practice drifting, whether it be for competitions or fun.
We went to spectate our first event last summer, and it was EVERYTHING! The experience of being able to stand front and center at the track, and feeling the adrenaline rush throughout my entire body as the cars swooshed by was crazy!
It was like being on some type of high.
The track we went to was called Motorland SP (MSP), and is located in Nanbu town, Aomori Prefecture.
We paid a $5 fee (per person) to get in, but once you're in, you can literally stay all day and hangout, and meet other "car junkies".
Worth every penny in my opinion.
Although I would love to go to an event like this in Tokyo one day, for now, this is enough to make me happy.
