Japan will surprise you. Just when you think you’ve seen everything there is to see in the tuner world, enthusiasts and builders of Japan will come up with something that will enlighten even the darkest of keyboard warriors. Two years ago, Sam and I were doing the usual - sitting around the cubicle whilst checking out import models on our social media. We were in the final stages of planning out my first trip to Japan when I thought to myself, why don’t we have a car meet? Luckily, Hardcore Japan had the right connections to get the word out to locals and even secure a venue for the meet.
This year we returned to Decks Tokyo Beach. Car meets in Japan are nothing like the ones you see in the States. You don’t have the random douchebag revving engines or doing burnouts, because the name of the game is respect. You can always expect to see a good mix of locals and military.
A few hours into our trip in Japan and we’re already getting in trouble with the local authorities. Who knows what adventures we’ll get into next. Be sure to follow Editor-In-Chief, Sam Du, and myself as we take on the motherland for our annual Japan tour!
