Original JDM Tsurikawa Number Plate / Angel
Japanese number plates are over played? Well, we got sometimes very cool for you!
In Japan, when you need to drive a car that doesn't have a valid Shaken (car inspection) or is not registered, you can temporary use a special number plate called "kari number" (仮ナンバー, "Kari" means temporary). This number plate can be requested at your local city hall, and used from 3 to 5 days. It is very cheap, you don't need many documents and it basically allows you to drive pretty much anything on the road. There are different format of Kari Number but the most common on features a diagonal red line, random numbers, and kanjis related to the prefecture and the city.
Red stripe, grey zone
While the Kari Number is mostly used by garages to bring cars to the Shaken center, it also helps a lot of car enthusiasts who want to drive their car to the track or to a show and can't afford a trailer. Or when they want to go for a run in the mountains once in while...
Of course, this type of use is not permitted, but this is a grey zone and it is common to see modified cars with a Kari Number driving around. You know he is not going to the Shaken center haha!
JDM Tsurikawa Boso Angels
Because the Kari Number is often associated to bad manners, we created our own version (which respects the official size and design and), with a special twist... The number 69, and it's repetition, is usually a sign from Angels intervention. The kanjis on the left mean Kyoto (京都) and the kanjis at the bottom mean "Boso angels" (暴走天使). The night is ours. Be safe out there!
