    Official: Mitsuoka manages to make Orochi even weirder with Evangelion edition
    1416772800

    Sports cars don't come more bizarre than the ungainly Mitsuoka Orochi. We thought we were rid of the puckered-face, Toyota-powered Japanese oddity when Mitsuoka revealed the Final Edition earlier this year, but it seems the Orochi has a little more left to give of its awkwardness, as you can see ...

    Official: Honda slaps Legend name on JDM Acura RLX
    1416142800

    It's been eighteen years since we last saw the Legend nameplate in Acura showrooms here in North America, but in Japan it's still very much alive as Honda's flagship sedan. And now the Japanese automaker has revealed the latest generation. Set to go on sale across Japan on January 22 - 30 years ...

    Report: Lexus RC media event in Japan canceled over lack of interest
    1416092400

    It's a good thing senior editor Seyth Miersma doesn't live in Japan, or he wouldn't have been able to snap a photo like the one you see here, of a fresh-off-the-line Lexus RC F on hand at a first drive for media. That's because Toyota's Japanese arm has outright canceled its RC press launch. ...

    Video: Manga stylized Toyota Aygo takes on Godzilla
    1415988000

    Japan has given the world so much to enthuse over. We're not sure the Toyota Aygo is necessarily one of them as much as, say, the Scion FR-S or Lexus LFA (especially since it's actually made in Europe), but for many Nipponophiles, the centuries-old artistic discipline of Manga certainly is. And ...

    Video: WATCH: GoPro checks out Tokyo's automotive night life in stunning 4K
    1415304000

    There's something bizarrely fascinating about Japanese car culture, especially around Tokyo. The metropolis packs people tightly together in a way that would seem to make owning any car tough. And yet, there's still enough enthusiasm around anything with an engine to support everything from wildly ...

    Official: Toyota pimps out Esquire van for Japanese businessmen [w/video]
    1414616400

    A few months back we reported on a dealership owner in Japan who was petitioning Toyota to make a luxury van. The problem, he reasoned, was that he couldn't take as many friends, colleagues and clients around with him in his Lexus LS, and his Toyota Alphard van wasn't luxurious enough. Well, it ...

    Official: Toyota casts off in Ponam-31 motor yacht [w/video]
    1414339200

    Some Japanese automakers focus purely on cars, while others dabble in all sorts of motorized transportation. Honda, for example, makes everything from motorbikes to jet aircraft. But while Toyota may be known principally for automobiles, it also makes a line of boats. And this is the latest. The ...

    Video: Batman caught astride Batcycle in Japan
    1409266800

    Holy makeshift Batcycle, Batman. This rider in Japan deserves a round of applause and pat on the back for his dedication to an idea. We've seen people build more authentic looking recreations of the Batpod in the past but never with this much commitment to the whole look. This Dark Knight ...

    Official: Toyota celebrates 30th anniversary of Land Cruiser 70 with Japan rerelease [w/videos]
    1409094000

    It's a common refrain among auto enthusiasts to bemoan the current models being sold for being overly complex and expensive and to wish that automakers would just make vehicles like the old days. Sure, they might not have been as safe or efficient, but there was often a certain rugged simplicity ...

    Official: Subaru WRX S4 gets big power bump in Japan, but not in US or Canada?
    1408976100

    A month after originally teasing it, Subaru is finally unveiling its WRX S4 model for Japan. It's a bit more than just a plush take on the sport sedan, because Subaru is fitting a more powerful version of the 2.0-litre, turbocharged boxer four-cylinder engine than we get on this continent. The ...
