Only in Japan..
I wish I were in Tokyo last weekend, visiting 'Otaku' Car Festival in Odaiba on Sunday, October 4. Fans flocked to this unique festival in Tokyo's Odaiba, with some 830 vehicles adorned with illustration of popular anime and video game characters on display.
The second 'Itasha G Fesuta' was organized by a graphic magazine specializing in 'itasha' a Japanese term for cars with their bodies colorfully painted with characters from anime, manga and video games. In addition to a live painting performance on a Lincoln Limousine, featured were an array of cars, bikes and bicycles that were decorated by anime fans as well as cosplayers dressed as popular characters.
