F31Roger's International VK meetings.

It was a busy few months. In May, I was in LA (unfortunately didn't meet up with VK SoCal), then Japan for 2 weeks (met with Taguchi-san) and shortly after, I would go to Vancouver BC (which I met with the brothers out that way).

Going to Japan, I often times see vans. But vans being tuned and built, I like to see more!

One night in Takamatsu, I was walking around the Sunport area and a Toyota Hiace drove past. The Hiace has always drawn me to it... to add, this was also a "VIP"style. Thanks to my brother Tsuyoshi!

I was also able to meet my brother Taguchi-san again! I am never close to where he lives, which is Nagano. The closest I get close to him is Saitama. So when I went to Saitama, he drove his MPV to meet us.

Happens that my friend Suenaga-san also has a Mazda Bongo Van as his daily car. I like these vans, but I love that they are related yet so different!

 

Last year, I went to Vancouver BC 2x and both times I was able to meet with my brothers there.

This year, I went 3x since my wife and kids were there for the summer.

When I first touched down, they said there was the Driven show they were participating in, so I met with Dovid, Mainthan, Ben, Eric and Benny inside the show.

This was important because Eric C. drove from Calgary (11hr drive) to participate in show. Few months prior, Driven was in Calgary, Felix, Mainthan, Dovid and Ben W. drove out there to participate (which is another post).

After Driven, we met for dinner in Richmond.

Dinner!
