Importing cars from Japan is becoming increasingly popular. This is partly due to the good condition of Japanese cars, both classics and newer cars. The number of auctions of European cars in Japan continues to grow and more and more car dealers and private individuals are finding these auctions. Do you want to import a car from Japan?
