I recently took a 10-day trip to Japan. During my trip I visited Tokyo, Nara, Kyoto and Hakone. In each destination I traveled to it became apparent that the Japanese have a strong affinity cars. The 2006 film Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift gave us a glimpse, but falls far short of true car culture in Japan. The Japanese have a great appreciation for car culture.
I assembled the video below to illustrate just some of the many great rides I saw during my visit there. In some instances, I couldn’t pick up my camera fast enough, or was caught off-guard by some rare and unique vehicles passing me. I’m very happy however with what I was able to capture.
