Red face Anyone here in Japan?

Just curious if any of our members are in Japan? I'm in the middle of nowhere with my SG5 Foz and pretty much rely on strictly the internet and my own intuition. Would be nice to learn of some friendlies who have more experience than I do.

I'm here in Japan as well, however I don't really fit the bill as someone with any more experience than anyone as far as foresters go lol. I just picked up a SF5 STi. I'm up in Misawa but I don't know how close/far that is from you.

There are a couple that come to mind that have been active recently on the board, swervo and OkinawaForester (you can always PM them if they miss this thread), I know there's more. And like Dylan there are a few more miltary members stationed in Japan. Oh and Welcome.

Enjoy your Forester and the Forum

Cheers

If any of you get the chance to visit Fuji-Q Highlands theme park, you can experience going 0-175 kmph in 1.9 seconds on Didumpa! Stood in line for three hours for that experience, but would gladly do it again.

Here for business? I'm working in Tohoku and it's near impossible to find parts, let alone Subie enthusiasts! If you find anything in your digging keep me posted!

I used to live there. Actually, in Subaru's home prefecture. Gunma.

Visited the Yajima plant.

It's a pilgrimage every subaru fan should make sometime in their life.

Back home in Toronto Canada now. I've got 98 RS here. Back in Japan it was a peppy little RX-R.

I'll eventually go back. My girlfriend is Japanese and I'll be proposing (crossing my fingers here) sometime this summer when i go back to visit. Just don't think i'll ever go back long term - at least not for a long time... My dad passed away as soon as i got back and i've been helping the family put things back together.

Well I'm not living in Miyagi anymore. I've moved to Akita with a new job.

Here's a pic of my DIY grill I made last weekend. >=D

I recently moved from Oki to Iwakuni. I drive a silver one with B4 wheels and a bike rack on top.

You got the right vehicle for going skiing up at Hakkoda-san. Some of the best deep powder skiing on earth. Gosh, I miss skiing that place a lot.... Used to be stationed at Misawa.
