This year's Nisei Showoff car show is at the same location inside the parking lot of Aiso parking lot near the City Hall. The underground parking structure provided an industrial concrete backdrop to the exotic cars.
And talking about exotic cars, one of the major shift in this year's Nisei Showoff car show is the rise of the Itasha car showing. Itasha as you may know it, is a Japanese word, for cars that are adorned with Japanese anime or manga characters or graphics.
This is an art form of the car owners, as it's a bold showing of their appreciation of the crispy graphics and buttery colors of the Japanese popular art. And majority of the time, they are permanent visual body art to the car, so it's a dedication that is nothing like other car modifications.
Here are some of the highlights of the show cars at the 2017 Nisei Showoff car show. These cars will have more specific articles in the following several days. So stay tuned for more!
