It's a status thing in Japan to have a LHD car. There are a ton of high end euro cars that are LHD there.

High end euro imports in Japan is all LHD. But damn they do know how to keep the city and the car clean!

i guess its because theres rarely any snow in japan and the country is so small people dont have to drive far to get to their destination
