Spring has sprung in Forza Horizon 5 and it’s the last season of the Japanese Automotive series. With a new Photo Challenge, a Treasure Hunt to complete, and seven legendary Japanese cars to collect, there’s plenty to see and do in the Forza Horizon 5 Japanese Automotive Spring Festival playlist.

What does this week's Festival Playlist have in store for FH5 players? Let's find out.

Forza Horizon 5 Japanese Automotive Spring

Five more legendary Japanese cars can be won in the Spring Festival Playlist challenges.

Completing The Trial unlocks the Honda NSX-R GT ’05 while the Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec '97 can be yours for conquering the Playground Games Survival event.

Other cars up for grabs are the Subaru Impreza WRX STI ’08 and Mazda MX-5 ’16 for completing the Seasonal Challenges. Because you can’t have a Japanese car-themed playlist without the Mazda MX-5, Japan’s quintessential sports car.

There’s also a bonus reward car to be won in this week’s Horizon Open Challenge: completing a Horizon Open Drift Event in any Japanese vehicle gives you the Nissan Silvia K's AERO ’98 rear-wheel drive sports car.

You can also win four Super Wheelspins in the main Festival Playlist along with a Driftacular Forza Link.

There are no Hot Wheels challenge reward cars this week, though you can still win an extra Super Wheelspin and a Hot Wheels Suit for your player avatar.

Don’t forget this is your last chance to earn enough points to win the Series reward cars. Earn 80 points to win the Nissan GT-R '20 and 160 points to add the Subaru Impreza 22B STi ’98 to your collection.

Photo Challenge: #SecretHondaWay

The final Japanese Automotive Photo Challenge requires you to photograph any Honda or Acura next to the stone lanterns in the secret cave near Ek' Balam. Your reward is the Too soon, Junior Forza Link.
