Trackdays... In Japan???

This may sound totally off the wall, but I am in Japan right now and I can't think of a better way to spend my weekend then renting a bike and leathers and doing a trackday at Tsukuba, Motegi, or any other Japanese track.

Problem is that I cant find any info in english online on schedules, track locations, if you cant rent bikes, etc...

Anybody have any clue where I could find info?

Almost nobody speaks English here, I dont think calling the factory would do me any more good then the google searches have done.

I was hoping that maybe someone had experience or spoke Japanese, and was therefore in the know.

True story, When I was in Japan I was amazed at how many people dress in American outfits and wear Yankee hats ect and dont know a single word of english

I'm a 7-hr bullet train ride south of Tokyo, in Oita Prefecture. I would probably have to head back up to Tokyo for anything, I believe Motegi and Tsukuba are both just outside of Tokyo. Let me know if you can figure anything out!

I've sent an email to the trackdaysinjapan link, I will see what kind of info I get from that.
