Costco Iruma store parking lot slope measurement

Posted: March 10, 2020 Updated:

Is Costco domination in the Kanto area near?

Many of Costco's parking lots in the Kanto area have steep slopes to enter the parking lot, so the reason why I first started measuring the slope of the Costco parking lot was

"Is it possible to go shopping at Costco even with a Porsche 911 GT3 with a low vehicle height?』\

It was to confirm.

When I write ..., I feel like "No, you're weak, right?", And I know that there are lots of things to do (laughs), but anyway, Costco tilt measurement started with a lot of playfulness and interest.

I noticed that I had already won four Costco stores in the Kanto area.

The first measurement was at Costco Kawasaki Warehouse.

And Costco Shinmisatorara Warehouse.

MoreoverCostco Tamasakai Warehouse..

Another 1,Makuhari Wholesale Makuhari..

Costco parking lot tilt measurement, finally conquering 5 stores

And this time, I finally confirmed the inclination of Costco Iruma Warehouse in Iruma City, Saitama Prefecture ~ ^ ^

This is the 5th store.

Looking at the list of Costco stores in Kanto (as of March 2020), it is as follows. The inside of () is a little far from Tokyo, so it's a sign of my fluttering heart ...

The part erased by the line is the store where the inclination has already been measured.

  • Kawasaki
  • Shin Misato
  • Tamasakai
  • Makuhari
  • Iruma
  • Chiba New Town
  • Zama
  • Kanazawa Seaside
  • (Tsukuba)
  • (Maebashi)
  • (Hitachinaka)

This time, I was able to go to the Iruma warehouse store ..., yes!

As you can see from this blog, the other day II went to BP Corporation in Iruma City to consult about purchasing Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE.It is.

This BP Corporation was located almost directly behind Costco, so I was worried that if it was too late, I would be caught in a traffic jam on my way home ...

"Come here and not measure Costco Wholesale Iruma isn't the way to a true sloping enthusiast!"

I was thrilled and went to Costco.

… No, that's a lie. Tilt mania, I'm not aiming (laughs).

Parking lot of COSTCO Iruma warehouse

Well, I came to Costco Iruma Warehouse.

At the entrance that suddenly appeared, I overlooked it at first and passed by.

★ Addition (March 11, 2020) ★
In the comment, I was told that there are two entrances (slopes) between Costco and I found out that this was the entrance I used this time, which was the "back door". Ah (laughs). No wonder it was an entrance that I overlooked ...

I regret that I shouldn't even talk about the slope of the slope because I was satisfied with the slope measurement of the back door, but I will definitely go to remeasure the main slope again! I decided (laughs). … So, even at a later date. This time it will be "Iruma Costco's back door slope version" ^ ^

When you enter the place where the Costco sign is displayed, you will run a little on a flat surface.

Maybe this is mainly a flat parking lot like the Shin Misato store?

I thought it was different.

This Iruma warehouse store is also a type that goes up the slope and enters the parking lot.

Hmm. It doesn't look so steep to look at.

Then, I would like to measure it immediately!

First of all, around the beginning of the slope.

Oh. It was unexpectedly sudden. 17.51 TP1T gradient.

When the Porsche 911 Carrera runs, it looks like this. Oh, it's cool ...

Oh, it has nothing to do with the gradient ^^

The steepest Costco parking lot ever

No, the point is here. This yellow circled part ↓

Here, it looks like this, but what is the gradient of the one with the 〇 pattern on this metal fitting! !! Maybe I will see it for the first time? ?? That's a great slope.

Well, the gradient is 26.4%, and the angle is 14.8 °. It's quite a thing.

If you look only at the numbers, it's steeper than the Makuhari Warehouse, which says "Caution for steep slopes."

However, the steps are not particularly terrible, and the slope is just in the middle of a beautiful straight slope, so it does not actually affect the vehicle height.

In other words, it was a point where I could proceed without worrying about the steep slope.

And, beyond this steep point, the slope at this arrow, which is a little higher, is ...

18.31 TP1T.

Furthermore, when it comes to just before the last slope is finished ...

Since it becomes gentle up to 16.9%, it was also inclined enough to go through without rubbing the bottom.

I would like to check the slope of the parking lot on the way back, but first of all, I have climbed up the slope, so go shopping ^ ^

The Iruma store and parking lot are also large.

Since it was a weekday evening, I was able to park the parking lot with plenty of room.

If I could stop with just one car like this, I would look at Carrera saying, "Why is it so nice ...", and a maniac personality different from the tilting maniac appeared (laughs).

Oh, nice. Porsche 911, how cool ... I love it so much that it's really painful.

Oops, I can't stop feeling that I want to avoid my "love" again, so around here ^^

I want to go home at once.

On the way back, although it is the beginning of a slope with a slope of about 16%, there is no problem as it slowly enters the slope.

There is no problem with steep slope points on the way, as if you are running normally, it is just going down.

And this always the most dangerous slope end.

The gradient is around 17%, but the time to enter the last plane is very gentle like this, so it seemed to be no problem unless I was digging in at an unusual speed.

It looked like a steep slope, and when I actually measured it, it was a slope to a parking lot, but when I ran unexpectedly, the beginning and end of the slope became gentle. So I was able to go up and down without feeling the fear of "I might rub the bottom !!".

Oh yeah, do you know that a clerk is standing at the exit here ↓?

Costco in Iruma says that those who have a membership card are free to park for 3 hours, so members were able to get a service ticket at the cash register.

This is the first time I've been to Costco. * The other 4 stores I have visited are free of charge without the need for service tickets.

Finally ... I've finished measuring the slope and shopping, and I'm finally satisfied with clearing the slope at the 5th Costco store, so I thought I'd leave Costco behind.

Ah ah.

Even though the last exit is "No right turn", a good number of people turn right and go out.

It takes time to turn right because it is quite difficult to get out. Therefore, I was worried that there would be a lot of traffic at the parking lot exit when it was crowded.

When it was crowded, I thought it would be better to take into consideration the time it takes to get out of Costco's premises to the outside road.

Now, in the Kanto area, there are 6 stores that have not been measured for inclination.

Considering that it is a little far from Chiba New Town but it goes well, Tsukuba is the next aim ^ ^

  • Kawasaki
  • Shin Misato
  • Tamasakai
  • Makuhari
  • Iruma
  • Chiba New Town
  • Zama
  • Kanazawa Seaside
  • (Tsukuba)
  • (Maebashi)
  • (Hitachinaka)

Also, I would like to go if there is any opportunity.

And the slope of the Irima store "26.4%" that I measured this time. This is a little too urgent, isn't it true? I was skeptical about my own measurement, so I would like to measure it again next time.

I don't know if the day will come when I will update again, but I would like to update it.

(* As I added at the top, I didn't measure the main entrance, so I'd definitely like to update it again ^^!)
