Day 7 in Japan. Off to Odaiba to spend the whole day at Joypolis, also known as Sega’s Amusement Theme Park. It’s not your regular theme park, because most of the rides are simulators. For Initial D fans, this is a must place to visit while visiting Japan, because you get to play the game in the actual cars. If you’re a retro arcade fan, there is an arcade area that will take you back on in time. There is also a Takoyaki Museum inside the same building, where you can get takoyaki, takoyaki souvenirs and takoyaki flavored snacks.
This is one of the attractions there, Initial D 4 Arcade Stage LIMITED. As you can already tell, you get to drive Bunta’s car, Takumi’s car or Keisuke’s car. Sadly, you cannot pick which car to drive. You drive which ever one is vacant first. The line for this is usually long about 20-30 minutes wait time. I recommend purchasing a day pass when going to Joypolis ３，５００円, because it’s worth it. You get to ride all the rides/simulators as much as you can throughout the whole day.
