In Japan most people drive a Kei designated vehicle. This limits the vehicle size and engine capacity resulting in lowered taxes and costs. Okayama is fairly agricultural so there are a lot of Kei trucks. I always wanted to drive one, and finally got a chance when we bought a couple of used shelves for the garage.
It wasn't as fun as I imagined, I wasn't comfortable sitting so high and close to the front (the engine is in the middle). But it served the purpose well.
