Kustom Japan is an inside view of the amazing Kustom Kulture scene in Japan. Fantastic creations inspired by California car and bike culture are interpreted and transformed with classical Japanese artistry and precision. Michael McCabe explores the outrageous style of the Kustom Kulture movement in Japan (the adaptation and assimilation of a California-style hot-rod culture)—documenting the dynamic relationship between tradition and change.Vehicle builders, painters, and enthusiasts describe their passion for this world, brought to us here by McCabe's amazing photos. Forward by Don Ed Hardy.
