ItaPara is a group of individuals that express their passion for cars and anime through the itasha style and culture. Itasha (痛車), in Japanese, uses the characters for “painful” and “car” due to the unique and, oftentimes, loud designs. The itasha culture is comprised of car owners that showcase their individuality, as well as their love for anime, manga and video games. ItaPara aims to bring together like-minded enthusiasts to begin building a community where we can spread the beauty of the itasha culture.
As our motto says, “behind every itasha is a story, behind every story is our bond,” we welcome anyone who wants to learn more about this culture and the ItaPara community. Feel free to come visit us during San Japan! We look forward to meeting you all!
