Slammed Society

Sherman Oaks, Japan

The stories you hear about Japan are probably true. This place is rad. I love visiting, hanging with friends and seeing the different cities. Here we are, on our way to Hamamatsu to visit our friend Takahiro of Sherman Oaks Customs and to check out Vintage Auto which just opened up the other day. (More on Vintage Auto this week)

First thing we notice is the vending machine outside. Mad stickers!

Air Freshener anyone?

Takahiro and I in the heart of his business. Great shop for those that want to pick up any Fatlace or Illest apparel and accessories. Even greater shop to get your system done in your car.

This is called a probox by Toyota. Stock doesnt look good but this one does.

Awesome Tool Collection. Super organized.

Here’s Takahiro rockin the Fatlace Velocity. ONE!

Check out the many more photos from Sherman Oaks in Hamamatsu, Japan.
