Japanese taking vehicle customisation to the extreme

Dekotora is a term invented for “Decorated Truck”. Decorations include, but are not limited to, neon or ultraviolet lights, extravagant paints, and shiny stainless or golden exterior parts on both the exterior and interior of the vehicle.


Funnily, the most popular vehicle to use is a dump truck.
