The first annual Moehaku 2010 show was held in Makuhari Messe Convention Center in Tokyo on March 21, 2010.
Entry fee was 2,000 (or 1,500 in advance) or about $20.
Moehaku is an exhibition of itasha decorated cars.
Itasha is a Japanese term for an otaku fad of individuals decorating the bodies of their cars with fictional characters of anime, manga, or video games.
These characters are predominately cute (“kawaii”) female. The decorations usually involve paint schemes and stickers.
Automobiles are called itasha, while similar motorcycles and bicycles are called itansha and itachari respectively.
Hatsune Miku was a popular character.
Finally, she was a cool cosplayer.
I posted a few YouTube videos as well.
