Japanese Dekotora Trucks

The Dekotora or Art truck is a kind of loudly decorated truck most commonly found in Japan, Pakistan and the Philippines. Dekotora commonly have neon or ultraviolet lights, extravagant paints, and shiny stainless or golden exterior parts. These decorations can be found on both the cab and the trailer, and not only on the exterior but also in the interior. Dekotora may be created by workers out of their work trucks for fun, or they may be designed by hobbyists for special events. This is serious customisation!!

I will be doing a post on Pakistani trucks and Phillipino trucks soon.

Amazing, I have never even heard ,let alone seen anything like these creations before. A far cry from a work truck that is for sure but truly amazing art.
