Apology: Fresh Tokyo Car Meet 2017

Super Street Staff
Oct 27, 2017

Super Street and Hardcore Tokyo have shared a healthy relationship for many years. We've featured their cars, collaborated on apparel, supported their events and traveled with them in Japan. On October 21, 2017, Jun Takahashi posted on hardcore-tokyo.com in regards to being arrested due to the actions which took place at the Fresh Tokyo Car Meet on January 12, 2017 in Odaiba, Tokyo, Japan. These actions included some attendees doing burnouts and drifts on public roads as well as increased traffic due to the high volume of cars and spectators that attended. Super Street would like to address some of the misinformation currently circulating the internet after some had read Jun's original post:

Since February, Super Street has had interactions with Japanese authorities where reparation and formal apologies were provided to the Tokyo police and the citizens of Odaiba to redress the actions, which took place at Fresh Tokyo Car Meet.

Super Street did not make any money from the Fresh Tokyo Car Meet. It was solely an editorial event for the community. Super Street did not sell any merchandise or charge admission, but only gave out free stickers that we paid to have produced prior to our trip.

There was some miscommunication, which resulted in months without conversation between Super Street management and Hardcore Tokyo.

In the end, Super Street and Hardcore Tokyo share the same passion and together we want to continue to help our community grow. Unfortunately, we do not have complete control of all the cars and spectators that attended the Fresh Tokyo Car Meet which resulted in a fine and the arrest of Jun. Our relationship was not abandoned, nor was there any intent to do so. We are currently working directly with Hardcore to support Jun through this situation. We'd like to take this moment to formally apologize to Jun and Hardcore Tokyo for the miscommunication which has resulted in his trouble with authorities. It was a situation that was out of his, and our control. Neither side knew that the event would be as big as it was, and that some unruly attendees would ruin it for everyone. If you would like to help Hardcore Tokyo as well, we encourage you to visit his hardcore-tokyo.com to purchase a t-shirt and/or donate to his cause.
