Hi people,

Here's a response I got from @AngelaKwokYee when I asked her what teams were seen on the plane from Hong Kong to Tokyo:


@CityOfBlog mom/son, cheerleaders, dad/son
about 6 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® in reply to CityOfBlog

And someone else received this reply:

@peoplewhowatchamazingrace mm was flying to tokyo. Saw maybe 6 teams. Mom/son, dad/son and cheerleaders. Their flight was 70mins late.

Thanks for the welcome peach, I've lurked on this forum for a while on the various forums, never usually get involved in the spoiler side of things though, but seeing as its All Stars, I couldn't resist. :)

Ok, here are the details from one of the members on my TAR fan community on mixi.jp.  He (not me - I live in Seattle) posted a note on our version of the TAR18 spoiler thread (mirroring this one!) at 2010/11/25 THU 8:26AM JST, with details as follows (translated from Japanese - don't worry, I'm a Japanese native  :lol:)

-------
LIVE FROM NARITA TERMINAL 2! (Arrival Lobby)

CX524 arrived 80 minutes late!
The teams that arrived earlier are probably already headed into town.
The SQ flight 538 that arrived via Singapore arrived at Terminal1 around the same time as this one, so there's no way I could spot anyone coming off of that flight.

Just now, Margie/Luke, Kynt/Vyxsin, Zev/Justin and Jamie/Cara (in that order) exited from EXIT B and got into cars that were waiting for them.

The staff members were guarding tightly, so I couldn't quite get close to the racers (I wanted to know where the clue told them to go), but I shouted out

"Go! Kynt/Vyxsin, go!"

and Vyxsin turned around to look at me and flashed a nice smile!  :yess:

Jamie/Cara were standing elsewhere, so I got closer to them and called out their name, and they said

"Thanks for recognizing us"

------------------------------------

So there you have it - 4 teams arrived on CX524 (actual arrival time recorded on http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=210016261&airlineCode=CX&flightNumber=524 was 7:32AM).

Here's the link to the Narita Terminal 2 Arrival Lobby map (1st floor). If you zoom in, you can see where EXIT B is located (to the lower left of the map):
http://www.narita-airport.jp/en/guide/map/airport_map/t2/t2_1f.html

Not sure if that means the other 6(?) teams were on QF21 - the direct SYD-NRT flight, but that arrived at Narita Terminal 2 much earlier around 6:13AM, so the teams would have rushed out some time around 7:15AM-ish.

Hi, guys.

I'm the one whom kenchan was talking about.
Yes, I went to Narita airport this morning to spot racers according to the info kenchan gave us.

As I mentioned, I attempted to get close to the racers, talk, and acquire info they have.
However, those filming crews were tightly guarding racers as if they were VIP or celebrities.
So, I couldn't even get close within 20 feet or so.
When I tried to picture racers coming out of the exit door, the staff were as if trying to prevent me to do so by surrounding racers and block my shooting.
What I could get was only sneak taken crap pictures out of focus, and racers can be barely identified with them.
It's OK I post them here.  But please don't be disappointed looking at those crappy pictures.

Thanks Kenchan!

m unknown...
Racers I could see were; Margie/Luke, Goths, Zev/Justin and Jamie/Cara, and that's it and I'm very positive I didn't miss Mel/Mike or any others.
Every single time racers came out of the door, the cameraman with 2 feet bazooka like video camera on his arm came out prior to racers.
With that sign, all the staff member turned busy and noisy.
That happened 3 times - Zev/Justin and Jamie/Cara came out of the door almost the same time.
After these 4 teams went by, everyone was gone quickly and nobody stayed there after two minutes.
...I felt it was over and impossible to guess where they went, so I went to work instead of spotting them.

here's another tweet from twitter by the name of hilmansiwabessy regarding about the Tokyo leg on TAR 18 and it happened 2 hours ago:

Quote
Ini peserta amazing race bego bgt, kmarin bilang kalo Tokyo itu negara di eropa, skrg dia bilang "I hate reptil, especially mouse" zz tolol

I know it's not English language but I guess there's some detour/road block/speed bump task on that city regarding about reptile and mouse.  Is there a native mouse and/or reptile that's found in Japan or did the teams went to Japan's oldest zoo in Ueno: http://www.tokyo-zoo.net/english/ or that reptile thing is none other than Godzilla?

just a specs. :duno:

Kuni!! :bigwelcome

I know you went WAY out of your way to do this for us, went early, took a long and costly ride to Narita and we SO appreciate it!!! :hearts:
This info will really help us sort out who will be leading and trailing. Great job!! :yess:

We will be looking forward to your pictures!

----------------------------------------------------------

Kamakuri is located 1 hour outside Tokyo

9 hours ago in Tokyo was 10pm. This could be from the previous leg!

Peach gave me the lead to the person who posted this update on Facebook.  I'm getting the details figured out as his account is somewhat sketchy, but he is visiting the Tokyo area so he's not a resident there - gotta cut him a bit of slack there, as Japan can be confusing to many foreigners.

What I have so far is the following (he gave me permission to share details):

Quote
I went there in the afternoon. I don't know which temple that was as I'm also a foreigner here but it's the one where you have to climb a number of steps before you reach the top. I saw cowboys, 2 black ladies, 2 pink-dyed hair ladies, and a Caucasian couple. I was able to take a picture of the cowboy and the black ladies.

2 pink-dyed hair ladies FTW!!!  :colors  :lol:

Anyway, I am checking with him when he was there and where the exact temple/shrine he was at. He later on did say it was during the afternoon and was located near the center of the city, so I am going on a whim and say it was the Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu (鶴岡八幡宮).

(hold on, this is still unconfirmed)

This is a nice walk away from the JR Kamakura Station, and quite a popular tourist spot.

Stay tuned...

 :yess: UPDATE!
I just got confirmation that it was indeed at the Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu Shrine (see the Google street view link above) on Friday afternoon where he spotted Jet/Cord, Kisha/Jen, Kynt/Vyxsin, and what I am guessing as Amanda/Kris or Margie/Luke.  Checking what time he saw them.

For more information, check out the Wikipedia page on Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu.


 :yess: UPDATE#2!

His sighting was around 1:30PM on 2010/11/25 FRI.

those freaking cheerleaders who complain them that the locals can't speak English?  Heck probably they're the last one to arrive at the pit stop and they have difficulties on communicating with the Japanese locals there.  I wish they'd been eliminated there or else... (:;)

They probably won't make the F3 this year.
And how are these posts live sightings or spoilers?

I think the "2 pink dyed hair girls" could be Jaime/Cara. I don't think it's Kynt/Vyxsin; it's understandable that someone could possibly mistake Kynt for a girl but last time I checked his hair is completely black, isn't it?
