Japan is great.
I was very lucky to go there for work many years ago. More than any other country I have been to, it is like landing on an alien planet. Almost nothing is familiar, the entire country seems to move at a different pace and in a different way to the rest of the planet.
Let’s take an example, and look at the humble truck. This of course is what a truck looks like in most countries.
Not in Japan. In Japan, the idea of making a truck into a dragon has taken off to epic proportions, as the below pictures clearly show!
… and they don’t look much less frightening during the day either!
If you want to check out some amazing photos of rigs from around the world, the excellent Roger Sneider takes loads and has them all nicely categorised on his website “Ultra Rigs of the World” which is well worth a look.
