For three days in January, car fans from Japan and around the world descended upon Chiba prefecture for the Tokyo Auto Salon, arguably one of the largest and most anticipated showcases for automotive enthusiasts in the world. In 2012, over 367 exhibitors and 630 cars filled the halls of Makuhari Messe, representing the best and brightest domestic and international manufacturers, products and automotive tuning shops. Highlights included Toyota's promotion of the new 86 model and its sister car, the Subaru BRZ, the eco-friendly Nismo Leaf concept and Leaf Nismo Racing Competition, Mazda's legendary 787B, as well as a host of other race-tuned and customized vehicles from Japan and all over the world... and of course the always popular "race queens." Enjoy a gallery of selected photos from TAS 2012 and check out the expanded features below as well.
Just thirty minutes away from Haneda Airport by bus, train or taxi, Shinagawa is an excellent point of origin for any Tokyo traveller, as well as an ideal choice as a home base for exploration in and around Tokyo. A major stop on Japan Railways' Yamanote line, Shinagawa is centrally located on the southern portion of Tokyo's famous looping line, just minutes away from fashionable Harajuku and bustling Shinjuku in one direction, and equally as close to posh Ginza and techie Akihabara in the other. During the Edo period, Shinagawa was the first major town a traveler would pass through on the Tokaido highway on route to Kyoto. Today, its function as a travel hub remains, with several major hotels offering over 6,000 rooms, making the Shinagawa area one regarded by many to have the highest concentration of accommodations in all of Tokyo.
Tokyo, the modern, bustling capital of Japan, is home to a unique blend of the past surrounded by an ever-evolving present. This great metropolis is home to a vast array of legendary landmarks, futuristic architecture and treasured shrines. Views of this amazing city are as timeless now as they were in decades past.
Exploring Central Tokyo for the first time can be confusing. With un-named side streets and maze-like underground shopping malls, its easy to lose your orientation. Thankfully, Tokyo's JR Yamanote train line and its 29 stations act as beacons for both locals and visitors. TravelOtaku takes a trip around this famous loop line and highlights a few of the notable stops along the way.

Angry skies over Hawai'i produced an amazing light and sound show over the island of O'ahu on Saturday June 4, 2011. On a whim, Function Visual Media went out to capture the breath taking show that took place in the skies over Mililani and Kailua Beach.
