Voices in Japan

Ben and Burke are joined by Sapporo local Aaron, who owns and runs a car dealership called Ace Auto Japan based in Ebetsu, Hokkaido.

We talk about many things, including how he got into the car dealing business and starting his own company, Ben’s short experience of working in the Japanese car export business, Japanese car auctions, some of the awesome cars Aaron has driven, some interesting stories meeting foreign clients, such as going to Russia to generate business, car management for rich foreigners with holiday homes in Japan, Aaron’s work life, and how he balances it with his social life, Burke’s and Aaron’s racetrack exploits, drifting, boy racer life, spending time at Lake Toya, and much much more.

We recorded this episode at Bearfoot Bar in downtown Sapporo, so you will hear a bit of background noise coming from the streets. Hopefully, it’s not too distracting!
