Morning Musume Mini Van

A common sight on the roads in Japan is customized minivans. They often feature futuristic (but totally impractical) fins and airbrushed homages to various pop idols.
This is a photo of a Morning Musume Mini Van. I see it parked in the parking lot of an apartment complex that I pass by every day on my after-lunch walk. I don’t know too much about the customized van subculture, but it seems to be analogous to that of low riders. The drivers of these customized vehicles tend to be men who regard themselves as exhuberantly macho.
