A trip that had been on the cards for a long time finally came true for me this year, I managed to get out to Japan for a 2 week holiday. My mother wanted to spend her 60th birthday there and I wanted to go and find out for myself what this country was like, being a fan of anime, video games and especially its car culture.
So we headed off and I wasn’t disappointed in any way shape or form. It's the most amazing place I have ever been to, with amazing sites and sounds, wonderful and truly kind people.
So down to the car culture. From what I saw, the Japanese are so lucky to have such a clean, smooth and well kept road system. Obviously I can only speak from the aspect of Tokyo, Yokohama, Fuji and Kamakura (these are the places I visited). Unlike here in the UK where your suspension is hammered daily by the awful road surfaces and potholes we have everywhere, their roads were so lovely.
-Kazuhiro Hazuki, Narushino Specter gang
Motorcycle gangs started in the United States in the late 40’s as servicemen returned from the war and formed clubs among themselves. In Japan the earliest motorcycle gangs formed in the 50’s and are referred to as bosozoku.
Words by Andrew Guy
Modifying your car is a very personal pursuit, and whilst many people begin with an aim of going faster, cornering better or stopping quicker, just as many people do it to be noticed, and to stand out as driving something unique in a market increasingly dominated by a small number of popular cars. In many ways, this approach opens up even more options when it comes to picking your base car, because outright performance is no longer a concern. In fact, the more mundane the car is to begin with, the more rewarding it can be to transform it into something that looks tough as nails.
The pinnacle of this philosophy seems to be modifying minivans or ‘wagons’ as they are often known overseas. Whilst not so popular in Europe, this scene is huge in Japan and the US, and Masahiko Sagawa’s Honda Odyssey looks to be one of the best of the breed.
