Yes, a new idea/section/regular just emerged: sanctuaries!
Why? Well basically last night I suffered from insomnia and for whatever reason my mind wandered to the original Initial D Tofu shop which is located in Shibukawan next to Mount Haruna (the town called Akina in Initial D) and that the original tofu shop has been demolished about three years ago. This is the photo Alexi took to prove it has been demolished:
So I was wondering how many fanboys actually posed (or their cars) in front of the tofu shop when visiting Shibukawan or Mount Haruna, so here is a whole gallery of cars, tofu shops and people posing in front of it!
With the fresh new start of Stage 5 it kicks off with a fake Takumi and Keisuke (still have to watch the first episode fully…) it might be good to warn for all the real wannabe Takumis in the world that will start getting inspired again and try to do what you should not do at home kids:
Just like this Itsuki did half a year ago in the Utsunomiya prefecture…
About ten years ago it was very hard to find a panda white Sprinter Trueno AE86 at all and nowadays it is more or less a challenge to find one that was originally delivered in panda white!
The owner of this panda red Levin AE86 must have thought his car was just the opposite of the panda white Trueno:
The writing says Maeda Tomato Shop (private) and what is the opposite of tofu-white panda? Right: tomato red panda!
I came accross this image on Mattari’s blog and it reminded me of the Toyota Ipsum posting I made a year ago…
Initial D replica in front of the Tofu Shop
Too bad the video has been removed now… In a nutshell: it contained another Fujiwara Tofu replica parked in front of the tofu shop and in the background a Toyota Ipsum (Picnic outside Japan) was parked next to the tofu shop on the same spot the AE86 used to be parked… So apparently Bunta has sold the Ipsum! 😀
Anyway, below this picture there was a whole (2chan) thread copied in which a couple of users wrote a funny Initial D spoof! I advice you to go to Mattari’s blog and read the whole story (with Google Translate for instance)! 😉

Now this is a real happy meal: this guy eats his Mc Donalds meal while drifting the Ebisu North course! Not only does he eat it on the straights, but he also does it Bunta style and picks up and returns his milkshake into the cupholder! Now that is EPIC!
Now if only he could pick up his order on the drive through this way! 😀
