Had a great time there and would go again however the gt4 is gone now as they change the cars on display every few weeks ive been told since then.
They had many rare and old cars like gen 1 and 2 celicas in brand new condition and was just amazing to see some of these cars in real life in such good condition.

Here is some information on the History garage if you find your self in that area http://aroundtokyo.n...oyota-mega-web/

Awesome find. I wish I was able to discover more stuff when I was over there. Did you see the giant gundam at Diver City?

I didn't know about the Macross setup. I was lucky to see the finished Gundam before Diver City opened and they announcing it existed. Thanks to a guy posting on twitter I was able to learn about it before the media. He watched them build it from his home. If I ever go back I am either meeting up with people who know the language, or taking a tour group. Only country I ever been to that was so difficult to navigate due to lack of communication. I play a lot of charades with the locals. I didn't see a lot of cool japanese cars, mostly german and itallian stuff while I was there.

That's awesome! I love how different the rear end is, and I'm assuming that little cable is a safety wire in case the rear hub blows off?

Nah, it'll be a travel limiter.
