June Editorial: Hunting Japan’s Treasures

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, summer is just around the corner.

June marks the beginning of the rainy season in Japan, and it used to be a period I profoundly hated. That was back in the day when I was less comfortable with embracing different conditions when it came to shoots. Now I welcome any type of weather for the simple fact that you never know what sort of look a passing rainstorm will bring to your set of images.

I’m due to visit Rocky Auto’s new shop right when the worst of the season’s weather is scheduled to fall in a couple of weeks, and I don’t really care if my trip consists of rain or shine. That’s because I’ll be shooting some of the rarest kyusha cars Watanabe-san has hidden away, as well as test driving his very latest creation which you can see a little corner of in the image above.

Good times are ahead, and another fun month of Speedhunting is about to unfold for all our contributors around the globe. See below for a very small taste of what’s to come in June.

Hanging out for your Hiace review, mate!

Dino Dalle Carbonare

You must be thinking of a Vellfire that does burnouts


Hiace review?! What? I'll hang out for that too, if it's a real thing!


I'd like to see some more Japanese vanning on here.


I've only seen a few pictures of that "latest creation", can't wait to see the feature!

Dino Dalle Carbonare

It's a crazy thing he's building!


If it's the 3000GT can you also find out if there's any plans or channels to sell to the US?


Can't wait. Interested to see the purple beemer.


I don't like being teased... unless it's by Dino :P

Dino Dalle Carbonare

Haha and one more thing that's coming is an update on Project GT-R! Hopefully - if I'm lucky - I can make that two updates ...


Looking forward to the 326 S14 and hotwheels articles


Awesome as always! Looking forward to them...


I really like these editorials, with just enough to tease without getting annoyed. So, things to look forward to. Both S-chassis cars, the Hot Wheels (shop tour?), the purple BMW and the GT-R update! And is that Forsberg his FD car that we get a look into? Hoping the other teasers will be great articles as well. Having learned from experience they will be.

Can't wait for that Rocky Auto article Dino!


i hope that hot wheels article is going to be some of their life size redline cars i asked about previously .
also can't wait to see a proper feature on the toyota 3000gt. please take some video clips or upload some.
