Japanese dekotora are an awe-inspiring sight when spotted traveling along the highway or moving with pride along city streets. The name comes from the term "decorated truck" which can be applied to any form of highly accessorized truck in Japan or elsewhere in the world. The phenomenon of dekotora really took off in Japan after the concept was made popular in a late 70's era Japanese television series called "Torraku Yaro" which dealt with the lifestyle and sub-culture of the Japanese truck driver. These trucks are today a very distinct and unique part of the modern Japanese cultural landscape and many believe the trucks to be works of art in themselves.
