  1. Hello! I want to surprise with partner with a trip to Japan next year specifically for the Matsuri at Ebisu during Spring. Are the dates usually around the same time each year? Im just trying to work out dates but I don’t know when they release the dates for next year?!

    Also I saw somewhere on here you help with actually going drifting. My partner drifts in Sydney, Australia so it would be awesome to include something where he could actually drift while we are visiting. Can you please help me out or send me some details about how I can arrange all of this.

    1. Hi Skye! Thanks for your message. Yes, I can help your partner do some drifting while he’s here. I can book a Team Orange lesson for you, or if they can’t do it, I can give you/your partner a drifting lesson in my RB25 Laurel. I will send you an email with more info about that!

      As for the Matsuri dates, they usually release those about March every year. But yes, they’re usually on around the same time every year. Please check back here around then for when I post them to my site.

  2. Hello!
    Me my girlfriend are planning some cool trip from Tokyo during the 10-12 of August. Since the Toyota Plant Tour is closed during these days, we though to look for some drifting events instead. We are by no means drifters, but we both like cars a lot 🙂
    Are there any possibilities for spectators (casual people, not drivers) to observe the drifting during the Summer Ebisu Drift Matsuri?
    Best regards,

    1. Hi Verner, thanks for your question. Yes, there is plenty of drifting and cool cars to see at any Ebisu drift matsuri. I’ll send you an email with more info. Cheers, Stu

  3. First time in japan, im going to arrive november 1 and leave november 14, any information you could gimme about the fall drift matsuri, Thanks

    1. Hi Adrian, Get ready for a wild time because the Fall matsuris are often the biggest. Bring a nice warm jacket because it can get pretty chilly at night. You can pretty much just rock up to the gate and pay the entrance fee (2000 yen per person) and watch it all. I suggest getting a rent-a-car to drive to the track and inside Ebisu because you can’t walk all around the complex – it’s just too big! Might see you there. Disco Stu
