What is or who are the Kanjozoku? One of the best video’s to answer that question is the video below.
The Osaka Loop is where friendships and rivalries are formed. It is the Kanjozoku’s automotive playground and the strong arm of the law is somewhat weaker there, as you can tell by the way the Kanjozoku treat the boys in blue.
The Kanjozoku hunt like a pack of wolves. Individual identities dissolve behind masks and removed license plates. It is for that reason too that the Jason Mask has become such an icon for the Kanjozoku. When these racers race the loop, they become something else. They become one like a true automotive family. Only then can you stand strong.
The Honda Civic is their primary (but not their only) weapon of choice and it is undeniably connected with the Kanjo (and JDM) culture. The nimble, cheap, reliable and fast little racing machines are suited perfectly for weaving through traffic. The car is responsive and handles and stops very well. But hey, I’m sure you already know that 😉
