While I was in Japan, I was constantly fighting the urge to put away my 8 pound DSLR camera as me and my buddy would walk just about everywhere in Tokyo. Walking around for miles was a very common thing to do while vacationing in Tokyo. The reason why I would keep that 8 pound weight around my neck was so that I could capture any car that I found interesting. I snapped a ton of pictures, and what’s funny is the locals would look at me like I was nuts. Most tourists take photos of buildings and monuments, not everyday, normal cars. What designates a “normal” car? I have no clue, but when I took pictures of this obviously modified TSX/Accord EuroR, I got that look.

Does this car look too sedate? Not to me.

Spoon calipers, carbon hood, aftermarket steering wheel,Volk Racing RE30’s wrapped in very sticky looking Bridgestone Potenzas? That’s already more mods than most of the TSX’s I see around here in Houston, but to the Japanese, this is just an everyday car. I need to go back.
