I received a last-minute message from Sean early Thursday morning while I was browsing through what was left of the famed Tsukiji fish market located within central Tokyo (now mostly relocated to Toyosu Market). He asked me if I wanted to check out Chiba Prefecture and generally just hangout, and obviously I said yes. Plus, my ankles had been killing me from exploring all of Tokyo the days prior, so the idea of riding around in a car for a day was a pleasant thought. Therefore, I began shoveling down the sushi I had obtained for an early lunch, bought the most expensive strawberries I’ve ever bought at around 4,000 JPY, power walked to the nearest train station, and was picked up in a soccer mom van by ‘Sean-san’ at another train station outside of busy Tokyo. From here I assumed we were going to check on the JDM Yard team that was being housed and prepped over at Xpoint Import Japan, but to my surprise we made an unplanned visit to one of the most unique garages in Chiba, Garage Work.
