'Touge' Is The Japanese Art Of Mountain Drifting

There is something elemental about Japanese videos of cars drifting down mountain sides. It's called "touge" (or tōge), and this time, it's a bunch of Lilliputian kei cars and a full-size van that are the dorifto machines of choice.


If you want to see more of these cars drifting down this snow-covered mountain at night, here are longer cuts of the kei cars and here is a longer cut of the van drift. Enjoy the weird Japanese techno!

Correct me if I am wrong, I thought Touge is the actual kind of road they drive on....mountain climbing passes on the side of the mountain...
