Baby-G in Tokyo

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

After fighting the cold at Motegi with me, I took Baby-G back to Tokyo – to Shinjuku where I was putting up for the next three nights after the Super Taikyu finale at Twin Ring Motegi.

 

What did I do in these four days with Baby-G?

 

I checked out the largest Autobacs store in Japan, squealed at Hello Kitty at Kawaii Paradise, toured the streets of Shinjuku and Shibuya, visited TOMEI The Engine Specialist and walked the multiple halls of the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. Phew!

Autobacs is a one-stop automotive service provider – ie. selling car parts and accessories, car servicing, as well as new and used car sales. This was my favourite section of the whole store:

3. Shinjuku and Shibuya

Each time I go into a departmental store at Shinjuku or Shibuya, I would go over to the timepiece section and look for Casio. See – my Singaporean Baby-G found its Japanese counterpart!

5. Tokyo Motor Show 2011 at Tokyo Big Sight

There were so many halls to walk (ok not as many as the Geneva Motor Show) and it was car after car, race queen after race queen… while Baby-G watched the time for me…

19That was a hectic Japan trip for Baby-G, from freezing negative temperatures at the Motegi racing track to Tokyo.

 

Next up for Baby-G: the blazing hot sun at Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia!
