Post True OEM Mazda
This summer I visited Japan and it was amazing !!

Of course I couldn't let this chance go by without visiting Hiroshima were it all started.

Mazda is so amazing that it was possible to get a guided tour (in Japanese) in the company with some visits to the Mazda Museum and a part of production (no pictures allowed).

Post Re: True OEM Mazda
I was there about a year and half ago with my friend. We got to go on a english tour with 3 other guys so we had the tour guide all to ourselves. I was disappointed in the store at the end of the tour, nothing there to buy really, Tyler bought all the cotton gloves for the mx-west crew. Was a good tour and spent 3 days there then took the bullet train back to Tokyo. Planning another trip in about 18 months or so...
Here's a pic of the last car of the tour since it has changed, color is off since I did not realize the camera was in some weird mode until I got home from Japan and Australia, what a piss off.
