    You know you've always wanted to go!!

    Formula DRIFT Team Super Autobacs is putting this out there to introduce a few of you to Tokyo Auto Salon, the tuning scene in J-Land, and Japan in general.

    The package includes:

    - Airfare to Tokyo from the US. (based on flight from LAX)
    - Accomidation for 1 week
    - 10-Day Rail Pass (all you can ride JR-line trains and the bullet train)
    - Tickets to TAS (possibly be able to get in there for a peek before the public)
    - Dinner with 2008 Formula D Rookie of the year, Michihiro Takatori
    - Trips to at least 3 Japanese tuner shops
    - Trips to major spots in Tokyo (Shibuya, Harajuku, Akihabara, etc.)
    - Trip to Kyoto
    - Copy of DVD Video of the entire trip done by Dead Pirate Productions

    * Prepaid Japanese cell phones available at additional cost

    We are aiming to make this the best trip possible so we're aiming for a small group around 10 people. This is to keep things smooth and make sure noone gets left out in anything. You will be given 100% guided support for this trip so no worries about language/food/transportation, it's all handled for you. The package basically covers everything except food and souvenirs for and entire week. We understand some people may wish to stay longer than this or leave earlier than this and we will work with you on an individual basis to adjust pricing accordingly. We have also recieved requests to rent a car and take a trip to the infamous Tokyo Wangan and we are taking that into consideration as well.

    Price per person will be $3,000USD

    50% non-refundable deposit required to secure your spot! Payment accepted by bank wire transfer, check, and credit card.

    Tentative dates would be: January 7-14th

    Not exactly. You could probably put together a package yourself for cheaper.
    http://www.iace-usa.com/ for air fare will run about $850 - $1200 for Economy.
    Hotels can run anywhere from $125 - up depending on hotel. What hotel and city (Assuming it is in Chiba near the Makuhari Messe).

    Yea but also consider the guide/translator, transportation, and just all around piece of mind of things going smoothly. Im not sure how much TAS tickets cost, or if you could other wise get to eat dinner with Michihiro Takatori. Of course their gonna want a little profit. But for all the organizing done for you, I think its a pretty sweet deal.

    *edit* TAS tickets on their website are 1700Y to 2500Y
