We are all used to seeing the most elite Garages regarding vehicles modifications, I’m talking about the hundreds of times we have seen Spoon Sports, Tra Kyoto, Signal Auto or many others well known Garages. Today is not time for that.
Today I wanted to compile a series of photos with another feeling, a little different and classic feeling but related workshops and some other stuff with this vintage and old flavour. Like old jewellery, and old poster or sign.
This collection is based on a few locations across Japan, being main locations Tokyo and Kyoto. Also some are took in Nara and Hama-Kanaya. It’s a quite nostalgic feeling when walking through these narrow streets and find these old Garages. Many of them are no longer distributing the brands advertised on their signs, others are selling bicycles now, some aren’t open, not anymore.
But there are still many signs and ads there, old ones, leaving that classic image to every brand. Today those ads look very cool to me and that is the main reason to share this post.
