Have always wanted to have our trusty March given the Ita-treatment with out mascot character Mirai Suenaga for many moons now but didn't know how to go about making it happen. One of the Culture Japan production members just happened to know a man with a dog and before I knew it our car was Itarized ^^; Wifey and I absolutely love it!
Before we proceed however, a quick explanation of what an Itasha is. The word Itasha [痛車] describes a car that has been plastered with huge sheet stickers of anime or game characters/mascots. Itasha literally means "pain[痛] car[車]" - the reason is that its supposedly embarrassing painful to drive around in one.
However, myself and thousands of other Itasha drivers all over Japan are not embarrassed at all to share our passion. Through sharing ones passion, one can connect to others who share the same interests which brings about friendship that enriches our lives. In a single day at the "Ita G Festa" alone, I met a load of new comrades and also discovered that some of them were comrades of existing comrades - tis a small world!
