On Saturday 4 April 2015 7 of the 8 participants of the 4Aviation Japan tour (number 9 had to cancel unfortunately) met at Schiphol. After two Lufthansa flights we arrived at Narita on Sunday 5 April early in the morning. Number 8 was there to greet us. We made sure to have cash money, collected the rental vehicles and started driving. The tour started with the traditional act of buying stepladders and after that we had a quick peek at Shimofusa. What followed was a couple of wrecks & relics and the gate guards of Kasumigaura before we arrived at the hotel of our first real night. The day was by then almost over already and all were rather tired too.
