Japanese underground speed hunters and street racers are comprised by different groups, car clubs and gangs. One being the Bōsōzoku which is most popular due to the unworldly designs and mods slapped on their bikes and automobiles. If you were to translate the word into English it literally means “reckless tribe.” Take a sneak peek into Tokyo’s nightlife from a GoPro’s perspective which illustrates the audaciousness in gripping fashion. Seeing the act as a form of creative expression, many that are part of this Japanese subculture tour through Tokyo in packs, driving highly customized Lamborghinis, RWB Porsches, Suzuki Hayabusas, and on the extreme end of things Kaido Racers, which are the epitome of Japanese car culture. All sorts of rumors have surrounded this gathering of supercars, including some of affiliations to the Yakuza (famous Japanese mafia faction). We wouldn’t buy into those too much, but one things is for sure: these guys love nightlife and have very deep pockets.

About Sascha Brian

Sascha Brian
Known around here as "the German", I am indeed German, but have also spent some time traveling the world. With 10 years of my life spent in the United States, rumor has it that I may even know how to grill a great burger. I don't wear socks with sandals any longer, but I still drink beer and eat sauerkraut like a German. When I'm not writing about motivational and inspirational people on Like A Boss, I can usually be found lifting things up and putting them back down in my garage gym (a.k.a. the dungeon).
