2017 FORMULA 1
JAPANESE GRAND PRIX

Japan remains one of the most exotic destinations on the Formula One calendar. Tokyo is one of the most exciting and lively cities in the world, juxtaposed with rural Japan, which is a chaotic mix of total isolation and dense population. The mountains, particularly in the north of the country, are stunning but uninhabitable. The flatter areas of central and southern Japan have to house most of the country’s 127 million people and the bulk of its agriculture. Suzuka Circuit is 50 kilometres south west of Nagoya, Japan’s third largest city, and it is liked by the drivers and teams. Japan has almost four decades of heritage in Formula One and nowhere in the world are the fans more knowledgeable or enthusiastic.

Nagoya’s Centrair (Central Japan International Airport) airport is the closest to Suzuka. It is linked to all of Japan’s major cities and, while smaller than Tokyo’s Narita airport, it serves an increasing number of international airlines. A third option is to fly into Osaka and take a short bullet train ride to Nagoya. The super-efficient bullet train also connect Tokyo with Nagoya. The Suzuka Circuit is very much a self-contained facility, which is why many Formula One people remain there for the duration of their stay. As well as the racetrack, there is the famous Motopia theme park, the Kur Garden hot springs, gyms, golf courses, tennis courts, bowling alleys, several hotels and restaurants from what seems to be every country in the world.

Away from the circuit, venture out into Suzuka itself for a more authentic Japanese experience, or head to one of the surrounding towns of Yokkaichi, Tsu or Shiroko - if you’re new to Japan, everywhere will seem fascinating. Further afield, you may choose to visit Kyoto. You may have already read about its traditional Japanese gardens, shrines and temples. It is a very beautiful city and only about 80 kilometres away from Suzuka. If you’re looking to go further afield, head north, to Mount Fuji on the outskirts of Tokyo.
