Someone probably knows what exactly #14 is but it looks like India to me.

@weihen, They have used that shot of Itsukushima Shrine a lot.
Physics alone is not enough.

My fault...It's Lake Ashinoko near Tokyo... TAR18 has been used it in intro to Japan but different shot :

I still think that's a new one since I not found the shot of it at night in past Japan legs.

I would hazard a guess that the graffiti is in Paraguay

The guy's shirt matches the National Soccer Team's Home Jerseys:

I'd definitely saw a Japanese geisha and a Buddhist/Shinto Temple in Japan on the intro clip of TAR 20, and that temple is probably somewhere in Kyoto and they might go there.  If someone send 2 pictures that I'd mentioned it, please post it here 'cause I don't have time to post it here. :-[

I advanced #6 a few frames and got this. Anybody read Japanese? Maybe there's an Osaka connection.

The last two letters refer to "Only man".

And this might be the geisha we r looking for:

The writing on her lower left is Takeda. It's a geiko place in Kyoto.

8



#8 is One Waterfront Towers in Honolulu, HI.  Can't believe no one caught this one.  The pictures are taken from different angles (front and back), but if you compare the buildings in the cap (A) to the the one I found online (B) I think you'll agree with me.

If you look between the towers at the base, both pictures appear to have the same flat-topped triangular shape (obviously reversed).  In (A), the brown parking structure concrete looking building on the right base of the right tower can just be seen in the lower left corner of (B).  In (A) you can see a two-storied, large-windowed building on the near side of the right tower, just peeking out of the base of the left tower in (B).

There's a lot more 'matches' if you look for them, but it's obvious to me that pic (B) was taken soon after the building was put up, the parking lot hadn't even been put in or the building painted. 

Doh!!!  All of that work, then I remembered this... below is one of bspencer's eyewitness pics for comparison of what it looked like when the racer's were there.  Da-da-da-daaah...

Thanks, choroneko. Since we already have a Shinkansen cap, perhaps it's possible for a single Osaka/Kyoto leg? Traveling by train between the two cities would take less than an hour. (assuming, of course, that the Gion Kobu stuff isn't just B-roll)

Here's the Noren or the symbol of the Takeda izakaya in Kyoto.



It is exactly the same with the one in the intro cap.

really nice work, Choroneko!!! 

But what IS a geiko place/this place? Is it a Tea bar? A dance school? A geisha school??

I am confused...

It's like a bar or teahouse where geisha/geiko performs.
To why TAR chose Takeda, I do not know hehe..

I hope they'll do a roadblock or detour with a geisha. Drinking games or dance routines probly. Oh that would be so awesome.

Cap 7 is Kahana Bay on the windward (eastern) coast of Oahu.

Cap 11 is a Makanikai Helicopter.  They do charter tours of Oahu.
