Said good bye to the Mini Cooper this week. I hate to admit it, but I'm a bit of a car geek. I was really excited when the new Mini Cooper was released a few years back and I had to get one. I know it's not very PC (or eco), but traveling by car is the way to go in Japan. You're able to see much more than you ever could with public transportation. We went everywhere in the Mini: the beach, around the Izu Peninsula, got lost on a mountain dirt road, up into the Japan Alps, even camping. Thanks for the memories.
