If there was ever a reason to visit Japan outside of Tokyo Auto Salon, Wekfest Japan is it. Just like here in the States, Wekfest screens each car before they're accepted into the show, meaning you won't find any super whack cars. And because the theme of their shows is "JDM/USDM," you won't find any unusual kei cars, minivans, bosozuku builds, or any other obscure makes and models you wouldn't see at a U.S. show, either. Every vehicle in attendance is something you and I can relate to; I'm talking about Nissan S-chassis builds, hachirokus, RX-7s, VWs, BMWs, and of course Hondas.
With over 350 cars under the roof of Nagoya International Exhibition Hall, Hondas easily rep'd the hardest. And what's most fascinating about Wekfest Japan is the "JDM/USDM" style. You'll see a fair share of Mugen parts and RAYS wheels, but you'll also notice plenty of American cues that have been adopted over the years, from shaved and tucked engine bays to the different paint colors we like to the use, and even a slew of American parts such as CCW, Rotiform, AG, Grip Royal, Password: JDM, Downstar, and more.
As far as Hondas go, there were just too many that stood out, so we've put together a mega photo gallery of everything that caught our attention - which was pretty much every Honda! It was definitely refreshing to see builds from shops we've followed over the years, like Tactical Art, Five Mart, and Exceed; however, there were also several enthusiast-owned and built project cars you'd never discover unless you went to a unique show like Wekfest Japan, which is more than enough reason to start making your plans for next year!
