The Elan has been my favorite car since I was a kid. The owner of the car shop showed me a photo saying, “This is the next Elan,” and I really liked the color of the car. I have owned my current Elan since May 1996.

I love the direct driving sensation and exciting engine sound of a Lotus. Lotus has an excellent athletic performance due to the lightness of the car body. The size of the car body is just right for Japanese roads.

My favourite driving road is Winding Road (Route 140) in Chichibu City, Saitama Prefecture, Japan.
