Other Highlights

pilgrimage
The manga "Initial D" is set in Gunma Prefecture.
In the work, there is a sign outside the OGINOYA Yokokawa store. A very impressive scene of the characters is depicted under the sign.
Currently, a car used in actual drift races by professional racing driver Nanami Tsukamoto, who is said to be a live-action version of the character in the film, is on display under the sign.
For Initial D fans, this sign and the vehicle have become a sacred pilgrimage spot.
