In Japan, new car numbers with a fun coloringMarch 10, 2020
On March 10, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan announced its intention to start selling new car numbers with a graphic background.
It is noteworthy that the background of the tablets is not tied to prefectures, but to smaller administrative-territorial units: peninsulas, cities, villages, and even individual city districts.
So, among the new 17 designs, options are provided for the Shiretoko peninsula, the cities of Tomakomai, Hirosaki, Matsudo, Ichikawa, Funabashi, Itihara, Joetsu, Ise, Yokkaichi, Izumo and Takamatsu, and the villages of Shirakawa and Asuka, as well as three special areas of Tokyo: Koto, Katsushika and Itabashi.
Each unit has its own background design, selected depending on geographic or cultural characteristics.
Motorists living in their respective cities or areas will be able to purchase new rooms with colorful graphics from May 11th. The price of such registration marks has not yet been announced.
The first portion of regional numbers in Japan was introduced in May 2018. Then 41 options were announced. Given the new portion of 17 backgrounds, the total number of unique local numbers increased to 58.
The very idea of graphics for numbers is spied out in the USA.
