Japan’s NEXT Newstyle Custom Auto Show (Pics & Video)

Chiba, Japan /// April 21, 2013

Held at the Makuhari Messe convention center directly next to the Chiba Lotte Marines’ 30,000-person baseball stadium, the NEXT show had all the trappings of home: rock/rap artists onstage performing next to a Box Chevy, food trucks and, most importantly, cars—that if not for the Japanese tags, you’d swear should be parked on the floors of car shows across the United States. While the Fast And The Furious franchise may have put the Japanese custom scene on the map, the NEXT show proves they’ve stepped up their custom car game as well.
