25th Annual Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show 2016 Report & Gallery Menu (日本語版はこちらです)

Thank you for your cooperation

On Sunday December 4, 2016 at Pacifico Yokohama the 25th Annual Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show 2016 took place

As you know, this was the 25th anniversary of the event. A quarter century of history has been built here at Pacifico Yokohama. This show has been held here since the beginning and has grown each year, reaching a global scale. In recent years we faced some challenges but with your support and continued efforts, we remain here. This year's campaign for noise pollution was "Respect Our Kulture - MAMOROH" and the success of the campaign will provide us a way to have HCS2017 here in Yokohama again.

HCS2016 Results:
Attendance: 16,000 (an estimated 900 from abroad)
Media: 250 (worldwide including Japan)
Car Show: 300 vehicles
Bike Show: 650 motorcycles

If you were unable to catch everything or want the extra coverage from before the show and special guests, be sure to order the HCS2016 DVD which will be released in March. The DVD includes English and Japanese subtitles!

Just as last year, the main entrance opened at 8am and there was a huge crowd this year as well.
Over the course of the year, there was a lot of promotion for the 2 pairs of Vans Shoes. It was the collaboration of the year! VANS X MOONEYES Shoes were sold at both the Mooneyes booth and Vans booth. Thank you to everyone for patiently waiting in the long lines to get your shoes. There were many limited event only items as well from the Mooneyes booth as well as artists and vendors too. It was a busy day for everyone.
As spectators were heading into the hall, guests were in the back area preparing for the ride in. An annual tradition started at HCS, special guests ride/drive through the center of the hall.

After everyone safely entered, gave a short "Hello Yokohama" introduction on the mini stage and posed for a group photo, the 25th Anniversary YOKOHAMA HOT ROD CUSTOM SHOW 2016 was officially started!

Unfortunately, the famous MOONLINER was not part of the Rid In. Originally built by Robert "Jocko" Johnson in the late '50s, he originally raced in. It was also raced for short time before Dean Moon acquired it and campaigned it under the MOONEYES banner.

今年も皆様のご協力のおかげで、26th Annual YOKOHAMA HOT ROD CUSTOM SHOW 2017 (以下 HCS2017) の開催が決定致しました! このカルチャーが大切な方々が一丸となった結果です。本当にありがとうございます!  会場周辺の問題は変化なく今年も今まで同様 "SHIZUKANI" です。

Last year we reached a new stage and celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show (HCS). This year the event will be held on Sunday December 3, 2017. With special guests and vehicles from abroad, we hope you will all join us again in attendance.

As for the noise pollution in the vicinity of Pacifico Yokohama and the surrounding area, we will continue our "Shizukani" campaign. For 2017, we believe the campaign has matured and the catch phrase this year will be "Sodateyou" which means to "Grow Together" as we all have together in this culture. To be able to continue this event we cherish, we ask for your cooperation and support.

For 2017, inside the event area, we do hope and plan for exciting good times. As we move towards the event date, we will continue to update our website with the latest information so be sure to check it out!
