Japan’s Bosozoku Subculture Captured On 4K GoPros

Nov 17, 2014

“Japan is car crazy,” says one of the subjects featured in this mini-documentary on Bōsōzoku, the somewhat infamous Japanese subculture associated with motorcycle clubs and gangs. Not familiar with it? Here’s your chance to dive in.

Shot entirely on GoPros in 4K, the video takes you inside Tokyo’s tuner movement, with vivid footage of the custom motorcycles, cars, and people who pour their passion into them. In English, the phrase “Bōsōzoku” means “reckless tribe,” and the good bit of recklessly entertaining driving seen here certainly backs that up. There’s tricked out Lamborghinis, Suzuki Hayabusas, RWB Porsches, and Kaido Racers, all seen from unique angles and speeds. “My heart will always be racing in the street,” says one of the enthusiasts. To that we simply say, “buckle up.”
