Happogahara (八方ヶ原), everybody knows this place. From wheither you're a Initial D fan, or a drift guy. Or none of them you're just a driving or hiking guy. It's been one of the most requested course so far and we got it done (and fix the damn Initial D one)
If you're not familiar with the place, or you just heard it for the very first time, Happogahara actually is a flat national park in Yaita City, Tochigi Perfecture. It's deep in the mountains surrounded beautiful forest and different kinds of flower and plants. This place is also owned some of the best waterfalls, and best sky view in Japan.
Route 56, is the only touge that connects and go through the entire Happogahara forest, so this road is also called Happogahara. (It does not have specified name). Because it's so deep in the mountain that you don't even have phone signals, the traffic amount is really low. Therefore this touge has been taken over by drifters very fast since it built.
This touge literally contains almost if not all, every kind of course situations. From very narrow to very wide, 180 big turns, tight hairpins and blind corners, flat and steep elevations.
The environment characteristics make the touge so special that getting a lot of attentions, even it made on Initial D Forth Stage as the home course of Toudo School.
Happogahara isn't the only touge that have a tunnel through it. However it's the only one that appeared in Initial D, Takumi used blind attack inside the tunnel made it a very impressive image on Happogahara.
Look at the recreation by us:

The drifting actions are so intense in Happogahara because it's very hard to get notice by the police, it also seems this place is the only touge in Japan that have special relationship between the drifters and the police...til now.
