Itasha...86 痛車 ハチロク

Itasha(痛車) is a huge otaku sub-culture in the Japan car scene, translating to 'Pain-mobile'.
  Although popular in Japan, it's not so common in the U.S, and almost unheard of in Europe!
It is surprising that it's never became popular abroad, but maybe it will take some time...

After a recent trip to Toyota, I thought I'd share some Itasha 86 photos...

Love it or hate it, it's certainly eye-catching and VERY unique...many won't understand it!

Based on 'Otaku' characters from popular Japanese Anime/Manga, it attracts many people!

Personally, I like it, though I don't think Europe is ready for it just yet, but who knows!
