Welcome @ Itasha.Blog

Itasha aka 痛車 stands for painful cars in an ironic meaning, at least as we understand it – for us, of course, these are beautifully painted and covered cars with Manga drawings, Anime or Game Characters displayed on the surface(s) of the cars.

There are two “subdivisions” called itansha 痛単車 – for motorbikes and itachari 痛チャリ for bicycles on the other hand.

Additional information regarding itasha can be found on the english and the japanese Wikipedia pages or just look at social media streams, like in example with the hashtag 痛車 @ twitter.

This blog will cover all those three areas, but mainly, because cars are the most intense and common vehicle around, itasha cars will be the main contents here.

So, i hope you’ll enjoy our postings.
