After 45 of operation in southern Kumamoto, this hot dog van has finally slung it's final wiener. Not only were the hot dogs loved by local workers and generations of nearly townspeople, that van that the dogs were served out of is kinda rare! How many mid-1970s Cherry Cabs (or Nissan Cabstars) remain in the wild? Not many, is my guess.
I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool!<More>
