Imagine the Cars And Coffee where the organizers intentionally ask for all the most hideous vehicles in town.
While the concept might not fly here, the event known as Itasha Heaven held in the parking lot in Odaiba, Japan, has attracted hundreds of interesting vehicles, to say the least.
Ita-sha means painful car in Japanese; this term is essentially used for vehicles that are painful to look at.
But for Itasha enthusiasts, it’s the subculture that gives them the opportunity to combine their passion for vehicles as well as their passion for anime girls, lewd video games and schoolgirl singing idols.
YouTuber Alexi Smith attended this particular Itasha Heaven show, took us around all the strangest and most unique Itasha builds in attendance.
It’s the crash course in Hatsune Miku, Love Live, Girls und Panzer, and apparently, no car is off-limits; even a mighty R35 Nissan GT-R wasn’t spared of humiliation.
But we also see the lot of Kei cars—which makes sense, since a bright vinyl wraps can be more affordable if there is less surface area to cover.
While most vehicles are lightly modified, the wraps itself are extremely elaborate and can cost upwards of $1,000.
It’s the shocking level of commitment, especially for the loud aesthetic modification that causes some polarizing reactions.
