The dense and automobile scene of Tokyo

Let’s start with I’ve already made I’m a bit obsessed with now: tiny vans. one’s a Daihatsu Tanto, but are about a billion thousand of these things. The streets of are full of them, making up about a third of all the cars you They do everything from as work commuters to carrying on their roof for painters and in between.

They’re a great in space maximization.


At the other extreme of the Japanese spectrum is this Century. made by Toyota, but not outwardly as such, preferring instead wonderful bird that I is a peacock. Maybe a phoenix? have to ask one of the guys at Gawker’s new ornithology blog, Feathered .

The has been Japan’s home-grown to high-end executive cars Bentley or Maybach, and has the never-changing, conservative look of a well-tailored It also boasts Japan’s and only production V12. pictures of this one, a from the hotel asked me to not touch car but when I asked if I take a few pictures, the powerful-looking man reading the paper gave the of nods, and no one bothered me after

I wish I could store and use guy’s nod whenever I needed it. You can get with a nod like that.

at this old slice of nostalgia a late 80s Nissan Cedric , with freaking wood appliques. This one appeared to be maintained, and seems to be the Japanese of an Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser right down the sort of look and detailing. Also, out those awesome foglights make up the sides of the grille!

it has that very American of little driver-facing lights on the to show when your are blinking. I’d drive it.

look at another Kei van here? one’s a Honda Vamos/Acty. I this picture because it how well these vans use Look at the Nissan next to it? the is only as big as the sedan from the back? all that useless is gone, and I know that van more than the car. In a where buildings have been built in alleys other buildings. this of space utilization is smart smart. Hoods?

Please. What have ever done for me?

There are vans as well, closer to minivans. Like this Biante. Minivans in the US are bought because you have no other nobody really gets about them.

Maybe because they don’t like awesome spaceships the year 2525, which have girls lounging in bubble helmets and silver inside. Why isn’t this in the US?

Japan’s other take on vans is to make them sort of like big, trains, like this Hiace. I think this pretty good, too.

paint mine in vintage Fe livery.

I didn’t see a single car in in lousy shape, and not many old Taxes and licensing fees vintage car ownership. So you can imagine my delight when I saw this RHD 1974 VW Super Beetle the rare semi-auto transmission. even badged as an automatic!

I could tell it was a ’74 the fenders had cutouts for the big American 5 MPH even though it used the units. It was immaculate. It made me to go home and wash my ’73 Bug out of shame.

Another ham slice in my why we get cool **** in America came in the form of this Will Vi. Under the skin basically just a geriatric’s Toyota Echo, but look at awesome 4-door body. The the reverse-rake rear window, the charm? I love this

It’s the sort of design and daring I wish we’d see on these shores, even if polarizing.

Maybe one of our friendly readers can tell me what the going on with all these colors and markings. It looks a Navajo sand painting or an Mondrian or something.

I saw a number of these little scooter dealies zipping the city, but only one with a R badge on the dash and an added I’d love to be riding this guy when the VTEC in, yo.

American cars are pretty in Tokyo, since they’re more for the monsters that destroy the city as opposed to that live in it, but I did see a Camaro and a or two. I was not, however, to find a butter-cream Crossfire. But I was happy to see it.

Look at this jewel. Old Minis are pretty in Japan, for obvious, space-related and this one was clearly adored. It was race-prepped, with an absent seat and a racing seat and cage.

I’d like to it gets tracked every now and this spunky-looking little

Are tastes really as safe and as all these companies seem to

Who wants to see another tiny You do. You want to see this sleek Minicab. I liked this one it’s clearly not a commercial this is someone’s private and they want to look a dangerous and fast.

Man, I one of these things.

EDIT: a commercial vehicle. The plate are the giveaway. Now I know! Maybe like a tiny limo.

I’m from Tokyo. Oh, this? You mean you don’t around on genetically modified moto-cheetahs where you’re How fascinating. However do you people get Whatever cyborgs do you ride?

Okay, last one is a brain teaser. is this Honda Cub I saw in Harijuku for? Look at that over-engineered aluminum box suspended over one side of the bike. at the network of springs, dampers, and Gravitation experiments?
