Stancenation Japan G Edition Aichi 2022 Coverage… Part 1…

This event was another one that came completely unplanned until I was already in Osaka. Not only did I not plan to attend, I actually didn’t even know about it. Yasu and I were walking around Wekfest Japan when we ran into our friend Akio Hirano. He’s a pretty well-known photographer in Japan and shoots for publications like Option and Stance Magazine. We call him “sandal guy” because he seems to always have sandals on no matter where he is, whether it be an event in Japan or shooting cars in California. The guy just doesn’t like shoes, lol. Anyways, he mentioned that the Stancenation G Edition event was happening the following week and was also in Nagoya. It isn’t too far away from Osaka, just a couple of hours, so Yasu asked if I wanted to check it out. I’m not going to say no of course because I’m in Japan to see as much car-related stuff as possible. And the Stancenation event is right up my alley because it’s a HUGE car show. I’ve never been. From the photos online that I’ve seen, it always looks like they have a very diverse selection of quality car builds so I’ve always wanted to see it for myself. Obviously, the car builds are catered more towards the “stance” side of car-styling and modification but I think people are misconstrued when they think that it ONLY has stance-y cars. At least the Japan version anyways. There’s just so much more to this show, especially considering the sheer number of custom car builds that it hosts…
