Okay... Wow, I haven’t made a blog about these in ages. So I’m going to be pretty rusty in grammar lol who am I kidding, I’m basically a fob. Anyways, couple weeks ago We made a trip to Yokohama for the Nissan factory along with the Nismo Omori Factory also. We took a train from shinjuku which took about 45 minutes and at least 20 minute walking from the station. When we finally arrived we were greeted by a gate keeper who surprisingly spoke fluent English and guided us to the direction to go and also directed us where the Omori factory was at. I will do some photo dump on here and along with some infos.. that’s if I don’t feel lazy. But anywho. Enjoy =)
entrance to Nissan factory museum.
Walking in, you’re greeted by a door lady now lol just kidding it’s the information kiosk. Walking in you’ll start to see some motor blocks dating back to how and what they had started with. It was pretty unique.
A lot of the motors that were in the showroom made me drool and most of the time I was fanboying pretty hard. I don’t think (fanboying) is a real word but who cares right? Let’s get back to more stuff.
Ive noticed that most of Japanese people are really into miniature scales of pretty much everything. In this particular topic, (which is cars) you’ll start to see that the attention to detail to the model nissans are near perfect to the actual car itself.
I was drooling soo much that Roxy had to made me drink some water and the water bottle had its very own Nissan label which I thought was really cool!
as we were walking out, there was this info station which was for kids, cause when we walked In there were a group of kids learning about motor works (I wish I had a field trip like that when I was little...) but anyways on that table, there was a cute little stamp station which had a GTR chassis as the stamp. I thought it was pretty cool so I had to get a souvenir for myself.

nissan vending machine as you walk out <3
while walking to Omori Factory you’ll pass a Eneos station
the entrance to Nismo is really dope
with the Nismo line up that are available for consumers to purchase in Tokyo.
the entrance to this warehouse is really eye catching
Rb26 JGTC GT500 for R34
this long block costs ¥1,274,400 which is $11,350 lol
R2 motor is at ¥4,800,000 lmao.
and the holy grail at $51,000 for this S2 motor. WAAOOO.
this place is heaven for all Nismo parts. This shop is soo damn clean it’s insane.
titanium strut bar. That weight less than a weighted shift knob. Of course I had to lift it. But first, you have to wear the white glove.
the line up of the Nismo skylines T.T if you look closely, you can see the R34 Z-tune there.
its now 4 AM and I’m just wrapping it up for this blog. I don’t know if you guys can tell, but I got pretty lazy with the rest of the captions hahaha but I want to thank the guys at Nissan HQ for pretty much guide and directions to the Omori Factory and thanks to the guys here for some stickers lol. Last but not least I want to thank Roxy for letting me drag her in to these places while I fanboy around like a kid in a toy store. I literally wanted everything down to the baby block scale lol.
Im going to try and post some blogs out for you guys. Please leave a comment and let me know if I should or nah haha. Thanks again for reading good night y’all

We live in a disposable era now where you can toss anything thats not with the upkeep. Technology has consumed most of us, but some of us are still living that 90's....
