Continuing on from last week’s post, this time let’s take a peek inside the Type One shop, although so many people and blogs have taken pictures from there, most of us pretty much know the whole layout of the place. Because of this reason, I was actually debating on skipping Type One altogether, but then I figured seeing pictures online and stepping foot in the actual shop is two completely different experiences. So, I hopped on the JR and headed towards Okigubo Station.

A twenty minute walk from Okigubo Station and you’re greeted by the famous orange signage.
The shop consists of two levels, both had work areas but the top floor is mainly a showroom. (Above photo is of the bottom floor)
Spoon engines and assemblies were scattered around the showroom area.
The Spoon wall of valve covers were some pretty nice eye candy.
Got a favorite front bumper?
A gorgeous AP2 just tucked in a corner…
The famous car rack with a new S660 and an old school EA.
A clean Euro R being catered to in the work area.
Spoon dabbles in bikes as well.
This is quite possibly the best car at the shop. How can you not love a Spoon NSX!?
And last but not least, I had to leave a mark at the shop.
So, that’s about it for my Type One visit, I hope you guys have enjoyed my Japan adventures so far. I do have one more stop left but that will go up after a FRS feature that I just shot this past weekend. Until then, enjoy!
It’s a s600 and an EA civic on the rack….not an EF
Thanks for the correction on the EA, but that’s a S660.
