if u go racetrack search for initial D, u can find more of the above pics that i made in a certain thread. i oso forgot where liao, i think almost 1 year ago.
i posted pics of every single race (i think so lah) that takumi had taken part in.
coz the locations were all based on real places, so the author actually went to those areas and consulted the local racers there about the racing lines etc before doing the comic.
even the tofu shop is real, except that in the comic beside the shop is a carpark, in real life, it's another shop
