We attend Tokyo Auto Salon 2009

We were lucky enough to attend this years Tokyo Auto Salon which was held from 9-11 January at the Makuhari Messe in Tokyo, Japan. While there we got a chance to talk tuning and engine building with a number of the top companies in the industry like JUN, Blitz, Mukai-san of HKS Kansai Service and Mr Niikura of Mines Japan. The Nissan R35 GTR & Mitsubishi Evo X were well represented at this years show. We also used the opportunity to visit a number of high profile workshops in Japan like Trial, HKS Kansai, Zeni Tani, Endless & Signal Auto. We took over 900 photo's during our visit.
