The dust has finally settled from Tokyo Auto Salon and the weather is beginning to once again warm up in Japan. As we officially dip into spring, this time of year is actually one of the best times to visit Japan. It's not freezing cold like it was during Auto Salon week, and it's not unbearably hot and humid like it will be in the summertime. This time of year the event calendar picks up as well in Japan, along with a number of small get-togethers and local shows that take place, such as the NS Rounder Car Show and Photo Shoot.
NS, or New Style magazine, features enthusiast builds that fall under the street, show and race/drift categories. It features everything from Hondas and Escalades to Ferraris and lowriders. They're sort of all over the place and cover what they think is cool, as you'll notice from the huge diversity they had at their third annual show in Odaiba. About 300 cars and trucks were on display and our man on the ground, David Ishikawa, was able to highlight some of the most standout cars for us—good, bad, and ugly. There are definitely a couple of familiar cars from our Fresh Tokyo Car Meet in the mix, such as the Liberty Walk Maserati Gran Turismo S from Custom Shop Babyeye's, but there were also plenty of new cars that many of you haven't seen—some for good reason, too. Normally, we wouldn't count on seeing any Hummers with Lambo doors or Jeeps on 32s in Japan, but we stand corrected after seeing what popped up at NS Rounder. Either way, enjoy our gallery here and see what some enthusiasts in Japan are getting into.
