Tokyo Auto Salon 2015 - Day 1 Mega Gallery (w/video)

First look inside the annual JDM aftermarket show.

Jan 9, 2015
Photographer: Sean Russell

Remember when you were a kid on Christmas Eve and you couldn’t sleep because of the anticipation of what Santa would bring the next morning – that Super Nintendo or the latest Super Soaker (Are we aging ourselves?). Well, that feeling of excitement is pretty similar to what we experience the days leading up to Tokyo Auto Salon each year.

Tokyo Auto Salon 2015 - Day 2 Mega Gallery

Ask any person who’s attended the aftermarket show and they’ll almost always agree Tokyo Auto Salon is one of the best experiences you can have as a Japanese car enthusiast. It’s like Japan’s SEMA, except with better cars and food! So once again, your trusty Super Street team consisting of Sam Du, Sean Russell and Jofel Tolosa hopped on a 787 yesterday to report on Japan’s biggest aftermarket extravaganza.

Fresh Tokyo Car Meet - Photo Gallery

Of course, we’ve been running on only a handful of hours for the last few days, but it’s nothing 879 display cars, 4,163 booths, and 414 main exhibitors couldn’t do to keep us wide awake! This year marked the 33rd Tokyo Auto Salon and it continues to leave us with our jaws dropped and memory cards completely full.

RWB Porsche Roppongi, Japan Meet – Photo Gallery

We just wrapped up the first day and worked feverishly to get you a huge photo gallery from what we saw on Day 1 – it’s enough pictures to make you feel as if you flew out with us. The morning of the first day is reserved strictly for media. But what was supposed to be reserved for media felt as if the doors had been open to the public all day. Pure pandemonium! The rows of the Makuhari Messe in Chiba City were packed with photographers, video teams, enthusiasts, and simply everyone and their mother who enjoyed anything about cars.

While sifting through the crowds, it was great to visit some of our favorite booths such as Rays, HKS, Cusco, Blitz, Aimgain, Liberty Walk and more. It also gave us a warm feeling to see Japanese OEs embracing TAS with high-dollar booths, for example Mazda, Subaru, Honda (Mugen) and Lexus.
