Tooling around in a boring old red Ferrari would be like driving an old Hyundai compared to pulling up to the curb in this Swarovski-paved Mercedes! Feast your eyes on the marvel of sparkle-mania that is the D.A.D. Store poster car. The rhinestone-encrusted D.A.D. accessories look positively tasteful in comparison.
Naturally, if you’re swanning around in the Maximum Blingcar, the only way to carry your bottle of Coke in appropriate style is to slot it into a Majestic Drink Holder. It comes outfitted with a hint-hint of a padlock, in case you get stuck driving one of your patrons home after closing time at the host club and she thinks it would be okay to take a swig when you’re not looking.
Sadly, the D.A.D store in Men’s 109 Shibuya closed when they renovated, but you can still see their awesomely over-the-top blinged products at the Tokyo Auto Salon every January!

Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
