You won't see these trucks at MATS or on U.S. highways.
In Japan, some long-haul truckers express themselves through custom truck decorations, called "dekotora." The elaborate graphics, lights and special accessories are all DIY, and the embellishments can cost tens of thousands of dollars and years of effort. The results are amazing, and totally unique.
"When I see my truck running with its lights on in the middle of the night, it is so beautiful, it is healing to me," said one owner.
