On the Sunday the 9th of July, Japanese Car Culture 2017 show took place at the Titanic exhibition centre at the Docks of Belfast turned into a little piece of Japan. With only 100 indoor places up for grabs and a large number of applicants, the organisers endured the tough task of choosing what would fill the spots. Hours and hours of panning through applicants resulted in what I can only describe as the best Japanese tin I’ve had the pleasure of snapping.

There was everything from Stance’d out S2000’s to monstrous GT-Rs, immaculate AE86’s and factory fresh looking Nissan Fairlady’s. A little something for everyone. I spotted a cracking Tommi Makinen Evo to gawp over.

I really appreciated the amount of unusual classics that were dotted around, Its not often you see an A70 Lancer sedan let alone one in this condition.

..and this AE86 with its Impulse wide body.. Nice!

Entertainment could also be found among the trade stands where you could find tools, stickers and all sorts of detailing products. One even had a racing sim with prizes to be one for the best times set.

Anywhere in the venue music could be heard from DJ X-Ray who had played a selection of trance and classic dance through out the day which helped create a good atmosphere.

Outside there was a drifting display put on by the IDC guys and some more awesome Japanese cars.

Overall a fantastic day, some amazing cars which brought in a great crowd and good vibes. I’d like to thank the event organisers for having us and for hosting such an amazing day! If you didn’t make it along this year I’d highly recommend it for your 2018 calendar. I’ll leave you with some more of our favourite photos from the day, enjoy!
