Here is a group of foreigners walking down the street. There are so many foreigners!")

This is the first time the World Rally Championship has gone to Japan. And the place they are going to is very out of the way in Hokkaido. (Hokkaido itself being highly out of the way in the first place -- It's one of the few parts of Japan I've never been near. The closest I got was about 3 hours away by train from the furthest south tip of the island.)
