Where to see dekotora (tricked out trucks)?

Hi friends,

Where can I see the famous dekotora in Tokyo or Kyoto? These are the "tricked out" custom trucks that look like they are straight out of the transformers movie! I am really interested in meeting someone from this subculture and checking out their truck. Please let me know, and thank you!

Number of Dekotora has been reduced by stricter regulation and social climate. There is a case that they are running for the transport of marine products often. And, what I see on the highway suburban than urban in many cases.

Normally, may be to see them running road, but since they are at work often, it can not be viewed over time. Unlike Itasha, they are commercial vehicles.

The best way would be to go to the exhibition of them, there is a need to match your trip date and opening day of their.

Exhibition are not held to many, their information is less. I hope that the person who loves Dekotora find this post.

Thank you for the answer passby168! I went to the website you listed, but they did not seem to give any information on where their exhibitions or showings are.

1) Is there a calendar of dekotora exhibitions or shows?

2) Do you know anyone who I can call or email to setup a meeting to view someone's dekotora?

3) What date is the next Itasha G Festa convention for 2014?

Thanks again for your help!

I have ever seen Itasya is the running near the house, but do not know what can still be seen.

Maybe, because there are cases that are not on display, one that was confirmed by e-mail might be sure.
