38 Golden Week Japan Wekfest PASMAG

WEKFEST JAPAN: The event was held on a Wednesday, which seems a little ridiculous for a large car show to be held in the middle of the week, but it was done so to coincide with the national week-long Golden Week. As such, Wekfest Japan, despite having the show mid-week, attracted thousands of travellers from all over japan to attend the fourth annual event. Some even endured six hours of traffic to make it to the show!

Before attending the show, I had my expectations, as I’ve seen event coverage through social media outlets from previous years, but when I walked through those doors all I could say was, “Extraordinary.” Each vehicle is built with passion and heart, and it showed by the amount of minuscule detail put into each modification.

One thing I would like to point out and was extremely happy about, was the layout of the event. The area was oval shaped with beautiful natural lighting seeping through the glass windows. Vendors were placed around the outside of perimeter, which allowed traffic that wanted to purchase merchandise or speak to representatives at the booths away from the cars. This made it very helpful for any photographer wanting to snap some good shots of the 250-plus cars at the show.
