Honda Civic Type R (EK9 chassis)
The stock cars that can out handle an EK9 are precious few, and that’s a fact. Good condition EK9 Civics can still be found here in Japan.
AMG E-Class 6.0 liter 1996
Not much beats a Benz in the top sedan class on this planet. Unless it’s an AMG like this E-class. 6 liters of brute tuned NA power. 6 liters, Guys.
Mazda MX5 (NA-Series) 1.8 litre 1994
Want to buy an MX5? Look into buying one direct from Japan. We’ve got many good, low mileage, well cared for examples of this classic roadster.

Mercedes Benz G-Class
How is it that in their super long running G-Class Benz combines toughness and classiness so well? These cars last forever and are forever stylish.
Suzuki Alto Works
Highly capable. Highly fun. Zipping around town, zooming along the motorway, carving up the twisty mountain roads. The little Alto Works is a winner.
Honda Integra Type R
The best handling FF car ever. For sure. The best handling car ever? Possibly. If you want handling, go for a good DC-2 from Japan.

What a beauty! The purity of the air-cooled 911 with the 2.4 liter N/A engine. This 1972 car is in beautiful shape and for sale here in Japan.
Impreza WRX STi Sports Wagon Version V (1998)
A station wagon in the Premier League of supercars? 0-60 in under 5 seconds? Yes, for sure. Hard body and practicality. Only the WRX STi can do it.
Lancer Evolution IV
Few cars in the “very quick” class give you more bang for the buck than a 1990s Mitsubishi’s Lancer Evo. And very tuneable, too.
Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version IV
It’s the supercar for real driving on real roads because the really high power can really be put to the road via All-Wheel Drive. Accelerate!!

Front mid-engine + Two seater + Less than 700kgs + Intercooled turbo = A total blast to drive.

Most people don’t know that Japan is a near paradise for classic cars in fine shape. Cars like this lovely, and loved, 1965 Mark 2.

MINI TRUCKS: LITTLE ALL TERRAIN WORK HORSES
Mini Trucks with dump beds are great for farming, construction sites, landscaping jobs etc.
The experienced, grizzled veterans of the import scene. They were very accommodating with all my questions and concerns. It was my first time importing, so everything was confusing and intimidating, but I'm happy to report everything went as planned! I'm definitely calling them back when I finally come up with an excuse to import another!
Mathew was great to work with and made what could be a scary daunting experience very easy. I am super happy with my car and am sure I will be importing with them again!
Working with Mathew and his team was an absolute pleasure. I went from never knowing you could import your own vehicle to owning my own Suzuki Cara within 6 months. Mathew was so helpful and completely transparent with me during the entire process. We spoke on the phone and via email and he helped me pick the perfect car exactly within my requirements. He dealt with my excitement and inexperience with patience and understanding. I couldn't be happier with my experience and will absolutely use Japan Car Direct again when it's time for another project. I highly recommend Mathew and Japan Car Direct.
Just purchased my second car through Japan Car Direct. Could not be more pleased with their customer service. Matt went above and beyond to help me find the right car. Translating countless auction sheets, messaging sellers, requesting vehicle inspections, putting up with me and my requests well after his time in the office, etc. I can happily and honestly say that I would recommend this company to anyone looking to purchase a car from Japan and that you will not be dissappinted. Very kind, helpful and professional. Can’t wait for vehicle number 3.
Mathew and the team are amazing. Bought my first Porsche in Japan and they have helped me all the way through. They are competent and honest people, will definitely be doing more business with them. Thanks guys!
Mat is is the best he was right on target and video descriptions are perfect. Shipping was alot faster than I thought it would be, as JCD didn't mess around. My van was at port and ready to go. I will be using JCD again soon, got my van now I want a car.
I hunted the internet for a broker I could trust with my money. JDC won and I am so happy I went with them. Matt and Yoshi are great. Matt puts up with a very demanding customer in me, I can certainly take up time. Matt sends me cars from the list I sent him, when I don't have time to check the auction. It is scary how accurate Matt is when I ask him to predict a selling price. He is always very close which sometimes is not fun but he really does know pricing. They have walked we through buying two cars now and have held my hand on both. I really apricate all the time and knowledge. After purchase they have also held my hand through the whole import process which can be daunting for a first timer. I am a dealer and Matt is great at suggesting other cars to import as well. I am very satisfied with my choice
What can I say? The service was friendly and good, and I got my car, which ended up being in a better condition than expected. Sure, there were couple of unforeseen snags that no-one had anticipated, but overall, it was an extremely positive experience. Hommat meni hyvin, auto tuli Suomeen eikä noiden pyytämä hintakaan ollut mikään mahdottoman paha.
I bought a 1993 RX7 FD from these guys they are great! Communication was very good, and prompt! Iv has my car now for 6 months and have been loving it! I would recommend emailing them and looking into the options! They are upfront about price and will steer you into the right direction on what the car will take to own! I’m working with Yoshiro to buy another car now! I’m very pleased with the service I received. It can be scary sending lots of money to a person you don’t know for a car you have never seen, but they will come through with everything they tell you they will do!
They've somehow made what was expected to be complicated, so simple. I got all the info I needed and imported my first JDM car without a single problem. Matthew was super fast to respond and always had an answer.
A must for exporting cars from Japan. I've exported various models with these guys now and they have been exactly how we wanted them with no underlying issues or surprises when they arrive. Very pleased and will continue to use these guys in the future!
This was my first time importing a vehicle for my personal use and naturally I was leary about who to go through. After looking through a few other places and after getting in touch with a longtime customer of theirs I decided to try these guys out. I can say without a doubt I'm glad I did. They are definitely professional and know their craft when it comes to getting you your dream car. Everything from getting cars inspected and bidding was completely transparent and went smoothly. I couldn't be happier with the car I bought and I hope down the line I'll be able to purchase another using these guys!! Thanks for all you guys do!!!
I have already purchased 3 cars from this company and have a 4th on the way. They are very nice, extremely helpful, and work around your budget. I worked with Yoshi. He is very nice and made me a lot more comfortable with the wire transfers (after purchasing the vehicle), because let’s be honest, it is nerve racking to send money to a foreign country and have to wait several weeks for your vehicle to arrive. However, everything has gone smoothly, and they make it very easy to import the car of your dreams. I will continue to go with Japan Car Direct for all my japan car needs 😀
Amazing people to work with. Answered any question I could think of and never left me hanging in during the entire process. I was always kept in the loop. Matt and his team are superb in every way. From picking my car out at auction to picking it up at port they were always there and now I have great little cappuccino to drive around now! I will be using them again to bring in another car in the near future that's for sure.
