Motorland Mikawa

Motorland Mikawa  is a circuit in Aichi-ken popular for both drifting and grip driving. The circuit is open almost every day with special events from time to time. The full circuit length is 1.2 km but it is often split up in two smaller circuits, a highspeed section measuring 800 meter and a technical section which is 450 meter long.

There is no admission fee to enter the circuit premises so spectators are welcome to watch from the “grand stand” which gives an overview over the complete circuit. Prices to drive on the circuit for 1 hour vary on the course length (3500-4500 Yen) and for the second hour you get a 1000 Yen discount. It is also possible to rent a car if you do not have your own car.

Accessibility to the circuit rather difficult without a car. The circuit is in the mountains east of Nagoya city (approximately 1 hour drive). Another big city in the vicinity is Shinshiro city (approximately 30 minutes drive).

An interesting fact, next to the circuit is a cow farm where you can get fresh icecream. Also, if you manage to come to this circuit, do not forget to pass by Hongu-san Skyline and the rest area at its foot.
