6 Wild Japanese Subcultures

Japan often seems like a cartoon, or a mythical place that couldn't actually exist. Cracked has come up with 6 more reasons why it's hard to imagine that people really do live there... including Dekotoro, the art of decorating one's truck as if it were a ride at the fair.
Japan is to crazy what the Middle East is to oil: sitting on quantities that can supply the rest of the world for decades. Of course, we say that with nothing but admiration. Their mind-blowing and often unsettling subcultures have faced the pressure of high expectations and stifling social codes, and responded by taking rebellion to new, terrifying places.

First saw those trucks in an old INXS video, "Original Sin"... now seemingly removed from Youtube, apparently. They (the trucks) have a not-so-polite name, according to the band. I'll just note this link and leave it at that. http://www.inxs.com/track.aspx?id=1487#
