The 71st Annual Nisei Week Japanese Festival served once again as the backdrop to the Nisei Week Showoff Car Show, located in the heart of Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Showoff surprised both show attendees and competitors alike with its glorious return. Initially, CEO and founder Ken Miyoshi brought the longest running import car show to a halt following last year’s event, upon receiving news that the parking lot was sold to a new developer. The demise of Nisei Showoff, however, was temporary as the property management was hit with economic hardship. This proved to be a blessing in disguise for the import car scene, as the land was never redeveloped, allowing Showoff to continue its Little Tokyo tradition.

This year’s event once again brought out a large amount of high-end builds and show-worthy cars, which spanned across every inch of the parking lot. What makes the Nisei Showoff so enticing and a must attend car show is the selection of JDM and euro vehicles, ranging from old school to new. If you like clean JDM- and VIP-style cars, this is the show to attend.
